Fans are loving the cover of “Sk8er Boi.” They especially like the song choice, with one fan even pointing out the nostalgia factor, considering the song came out 20 years ago, the same year Heuningkai was born.
Fans agree that Heuningkai’s voice is perfect for the song, and while he paid tribute to the original, he gave it his very own vibe. Fans can’t wait to see what song he covers next and are still hoping that a Heungkai and Avril Lavigne collab will happen someday.
