Cookie Monster covers Icona Pop’s I Love It

Sesame Street’s resident biscuit fiend has covered Icona Pop’s Official Number 1 smash, I Love It.

Sesame Street’s resident biscuit fiend has covered Icona Pop’s Official Number 1 smash, I Love It.

When Icona Pop topped the Official Singles Chart back in June, little did they realise that their Number 1 smash hit I Love It FT Charli XCX would inspire this celebrity cover version…

Cookie Monster, Sesame Street’s resident biscuit connoisseur, has reworked the Swedish duo’s track for an upcoming episode of the hit children’s show. Retitled Me Want It (But Me Wait), Cookie Monster sings about how he’s trying to exercise a newfound self-control when it comes to his favourite baked snack.

The first verse is as follows:

Me get this feeling when me see a cookie on a plate,
Me want to grab it,
Want to eat it,
Me no can wait,

But now me know that self-control is something me must learn,
Me want to grab it,
Want to eat it,
But me wait!

Sadly, there are no plans for Sesame Street to release it as a single. So, sadly you won’t see it on the Official Singles Chart anytime soon, but here’s the video:
