Well done Alex! That's the correct use of "yǒu" with the meaning of "to have." From your recording I hear some pronunciation of tones that are not very good. You could check out our lesson about tones in Tone It Up channel.

Well done, Alex! Only one question, did you say "yǒu", which means to have, or "yào", which means to want in the recording?

"Yào" is correct in the sentence. "Yǒu" means to have but not to have to. We have other lessons about the verb that means "to have to" in English. You could check the Crazy Grammar channel for that.
