Pentatonix Renews Our Love For Camila Cabello's 'Havana' With A New Cover

We're so glad they're back.

It's been so long since the last time Pentatonix shared a new music video that the last one was a Christmas song. Since then, we've seen them rap battle Bell Biv Devoe and perform with young ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, but we've still been craving a new YouTube cover.

Thankfully, our favorite acapella group is now back for 2018 with the perfect new performance, and they're reminding us just how much we still love Camila Cabello's hit song "Havana." The group takes the addictive single, from the former Fifth Harmony star's self-titled debut album, and puts their own memorable spin on it.


The chill, no-frills video features the group members seated together in a cozy-looking library. After a brief stint as a foursome after Avi Kaplan's exit, they're back to five with new member Matt Sallee, who joins Kevin Olusola in beatboxing — while Mitch Grassi, Scott Hoying, and Kirstin Maldonado take turns on vocals. 

We especially love the group's reinvention of Young Thug's rap verse, as well as Olusola's perfect trumpet solo (sans trumpet) to close out the performance. We're looking forward to even more inventive covers from the group as the year continues.
