First off, I wasn't aware that Kidz Bop was still actually a thing.
Secondly, while I'm not surprised that "Thrift Shop" is popular enough to include on here (along with Taylor Swift breakup song "I Knew You Were Trouble," a few songs by the ever-so-child-friendly Pitbull, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us"), it was pretty well neutered by the Kidz Bop "Kidz," who don't sound like children so much as they do pitch-shifted adults.
I mean, they can't even say "I'm gonna pop some tags," changing it to "rock some tags" — does "pop" have some sort of violent, drug-addled meaning here I'm unaware of? Ugh.
Anyway, as the adage goes, we often hurt the ones we love.
Let us love you.
