Cris Cab Performs ‘Liar Liar’ + ‘Loves Me Not’ Acoustic at PopCrush [EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS]

by | PopCrush

The PopCrush editors are big fans of Cris Cab‘s ‘Liar Liar,’ so when he stopped by the our office in New York City, we were thrilled to hear him perform that song (and another song). Spoiler: He sounds amazing.

Cris kicked off his mini-set in one of our office’s conference rooms with ‘Liar Liar,’ which was co-written by Pharrell. Fans know the studio version for its reggae vibe and sultry beats. The stripped-down, acoustic version Cris played for us has the same soulfulness, but it really highlights his incredible voice. Even without additional instrumentation, he still had us completely captivated. We were impressed with both the intensity and speed at which he played.

Lucky for us, Cris was kind enough to play a second song and, as expected, he crushed it! ‘Loves Me Not’ has the same energy as ‘Liar Liar,’ but has a totally different sound. He told us it was inspired by the classic image of plucking flower petals to determine if someone loves you — but he definitely adds his own twist to the story!

Needless to say, we’ll be keeping these videos in high rotation. Watch Cris perform ‘Liar Liar’ in the video above and ‘Loves Me Not’ in the video below.

Stay tuned to PopCrush for an exclusive interview with Cris, which is coming soon!
