,A musician has taken to TikTok to turn awkward messages on Tinder into powerful musical compositions.

 In a video shared to Twitter, Becky Carewe-Jeffries – known online as Becky CJ – begins to cover “Don’t Stop Believin’”, before the conversation becomes a lot more intense.

Instead of continuing the lyrics with the line, “she took the midnight train going anywhere”, the individual asks them if they would like to have sex with them. 

As the comment continues, Carewe-Jeffries sings: “I’m not a creep or a pervert, just a genuine guy. I would treat you with respect and the sex would be good.

“So yeah, excuse me if I come across as a little uncalibrated but I think you’re attractive, so what do you think?”

The video currently has more than 5.8 million plays on TikTok, with the next two songs in the series receiving 125 thousand and 60 thousand views respectively.

Speaking to HuffPost UK, Carewe-Jeffries said she found the above message on the Tinder Nightmares Facebook page, adding that she “couldn’t resist”.

“I’m not laughing at [the message] and I’m being really sincere with the way I deliver the song. I think it really pinpoints how absurd speaking to somebody like that is. All of the ‘hahas’ and the trying to soften it – that doesn’t work and it’s even creepier in some ways.”

People were quick to praise the musical performance, with Twitter users describing the first video in the series as “spectacular” and “catchy af”:

Carewe-Jeffries plans to release more of these videos in the future, as well as her next single “Losing Your Perspective”, which comes out on 25 February.
