Tyler, the Creator’s take on the famous Grinch theme song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” has been revealed ahead of the release of the new animated movie “The Grinch.”
A trailer for the movie that was released last month first revealed that the film would feature new music by Tyler, the Creator, while playing a snippet of his updated recording of “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”
