Fifth Harmony Releases Teasers of Their Cover of Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’

January 1,2015 is the start of the countdown for the upcoming album debut of Fifth Harmony. As the day comes closer, the girls’ group has been releasing snippets of what fans would expect from their album. And among the recent and most-talked about teasers are the snippets of their cover of one of Bruno Mars’ famous songs. Read on to learn more about it.

With their debut album due for release on Jan.7, 2015, the girl group has been keeping fans up on their toes thanks to their releasing teasers over at Instagram and keeping people updated on Twitter. In one such teaser release, it is revealed that the girls have done a rendition of ‘Uptown Funk’, along with some ‘mystery’ company.


‘Uptown Funk’ was produced and co-written by UK-based DJ and musician Mark Ronson and featured Bruno Mars in the vocals. According to Hollywood Life, the song became quite a hit upon its release on Nov. 2014. Not surprisingly, it got the number one spot in the pop charts and held onto it for 3 straight weeks. 

The girls released the first teaser of ‘Uptown Funk’ on New Year, with Lauren Jauregui posting some of the song’s lyrics on Twitter and providing an Instagram link. On Friday, Jan. 2, 2014, Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello posted another snippet of the song, which surprisingly had another singing voice coming along. Cabello even teasingly placed in the caption “…hear any familiar voices?” 

Sounds like the girls had some company while making this rendition. True enough, singer Jacob Whitesides later tweeted “who is that???,” giving enough of a hint to everyone, including his own group of fans, that he’s the ‘mystery singer’ we’re looking for. 

Many fans have taken to Twitter and Instagram to express their excitement over the album’s upcoming release. Things pretty much heated up when Whitesides came into the picture. Fifth Harmony’s upcoming album is definitely something to look out for.
