Real talk: I can’t afford to buy you all chocolate and teddy bears, so hopefully this will suffice.

As if MNEK‘s latest single “The Rhythm” wasn’t disorientingly dope enough, the talented UK producer-singer-songwriter-remixer-all-around-talented dude just dropped an absolutely sick refix of Vanessa Carlton‘s classic singalong anthem, “A Thousand Miles.”

Sure, the original’s already 100 percent underline underline emoji perfect in its own right, but MNEK’s gone and given the song entirely new life with this killer reinterpretation, supplying his signature soulful vocals and throbbing beats — and, best of all, those nasty drops that interpolate The B-52’s “Love Shack.” It’s a revelation.

Give it a spin and drop it low for bae…or for yourself in the mirror. ‘CAUSE YOU DON’T NEED A MAN.

❤ Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤
