Myla and Justin Wesson in the cutest lip sync battle ever.

When Maroon 5 released Girls Like You some months ago, I remember spontaneously bursting into song. And you best believe I held and pulled every note.

“I spent laaast night, on the laaast flight, to you. It took a whole daaay up, trying to get waaay up, ooh ooh…”


While I belted it out – along the radio, on my way to the store, in the shower – I probably didn’t do it quite as well as Myla Wesson and her dad, Justin.

Mom Trina posted an adorable video of her husband and little one singing along to the hit song on Instagram with the caption, “A little post-bath lip sync battle last night”, also revealing that “Myla is one heck of a lip syncer.” We, and the Internet, couldn’t agree more. The post has since gotten over 3 million views on her Instagram account and on 9gag’s share, over 13 million.

So we just had to share it with you too. We can’t promise it won’t be stuck in your head for the rest of the day – it could very well knock Baby Shark off the top spot – but this is the most adorable post-bath father-daughter lip sync battle you need to see today:
