The indie pop singer’s sparkling rendition of the 1999 classic is heard in the trailer, which was released Wednesday (Aug. 4), and on the official soundtrack. He’s All That (Music From the Netflix Film) will drop Aug. 27 via Astralwerks, the same day the film will be released globally on Netflix.
“Of course, there are many songs that have influenced my career, but of all the songs in the universe, ‘Kiss Me’ has to be one of my absolute favorites,” Cyn says in an official statement. “I have many fond memories of discovering my voice to ‘Kiss Me’ while riding in the backseat of my mom’s car. When I was approached with the opportunity to sing this song, I was ecstatic and so grateful. I am thrilled with how it turned out and can’t wait to see it in He’s All That.”
The Sixpence song, which hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned a 2000 Grammy nomination for best pop performance by a duo or group with vocal, was featured in the original film starring Rachael Leigh Cook and Freddie Prinze Jr. The 2021 remake flips the script and stars TikTok star Addison Rae as a beauty influencer on a mission to make over her unpopular classmate (Tanner Buchanan) into the prom king.
He’s All That (Music From the Netflix Film) will also feature new songs from Blu DeTiger (“Go Bad”), Valentino Khan (“Stop Talkin’” feat. ALMA) and Kaz Gamble and Doug Ray (“Mean Streets of Pali”). “Carried Away” by Surf Mesa with Madison Beer is also featured prominently throughout the film. Remixes of Cyn’s “Kiss Me” and Surf Mesa and Beer’s “Carried Away” will appear on the 16-song soundtrack too.
Cyn has recently secured multiple placements on popular movie soundtracks, including “I Can’t Believe” on Netflix’s To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You and “Uh-Oh” and “Drinks” for the Oscar-winning film Promising Young Woman.
