    If you weren't a preteen jamming out to a playlist of just her, Michelle Branch, Vanessa Carlton, and Nelly Furtado on a chunky iPod Nano, did you even live??

    In the early '00s, you couldn't leave your house without hearing one of her songs. Not to mention 2010's Easy A which, if memory serves, was just two hours of Emma Stone singing "Pocketful of Sunshine."

    Well, it looks like today's teens are finally discovering Natasha's greatness — a remix of her song "Unwritten" has gone viral on TikTok. The remix, titled "Esco Like Yhop ft. Shawn P," was first uploaded by TikTok user @escoupp in February, but most 'Tokers are re-creating one of two choreographed dances, by @rony_boyy and @gleefuljhits, respectively.

    In an IG post from this weekend, the singer wrote, "The essence of 'Unwritten' is about how wonderful, unexpected things can happen at any moment, and these TikTok dances I keep seeing recently couldn’t be more wonderful and unexpected!"

    @natashabedingfield

    #duet with @rony_boyy *this dance to my song is brilliant - oh help! Now I gotta learn it🤪 👏thank you @escoupp your sound is wicked

    ♬ Esco Like Yhop ft. Shawn P - Èsco Upp🗣

    "It’s a real joy to attempt to keep up (even if I make a fool of myself!). I’m working my way up to the badass moves that @ronyboyy first did to the @therealesco.upp sound. It looks impressive but really complex. Maybe one of the OG dancers in these amazing videos can teach it to me, or I might need @derekhough to help me learn it! Thanks to all for this beautiful surprise. It’s all Unwritten."

    TL;DR!

    "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield really is a timeless classic.

    And don't you forget it.
