Fifth Harmony Covers Lana Del Rey’s “American,” Comes For Wigs Bradley Stern March 9, 2013 Fifth Harmony, Lana Del Rey 8 Comments 420 While Saint Lana Del Rey heads back into the studio in California to record her new “spiritual, stripped down” record (already dying and/or dead), her loyal followers are still singing the gospel of Born To Die on the daily. Earlier this week, Monarchy released their spacey take on “Video Games.” And now, we’ve got a cover of Paradise‘s “American” by none other than Simon Cowell‘s favorite X Factor crooners, Fifth Harmony. Wait. I know what you’re thinking, Queen B: 5H covering Lana Del Rey? Seems really weird. But listen, please… Right? Seriously though, this cover is fucking bananas o’clock amazing. The girls take the track and give it a melodic twist that really loosens up the lonesome, worldweary quality of Lana’s original and gives it a feel good freshness. Their voices are only continuing to improve individually–and more importantly, their harmonies. They really are living up to their name! (Queen Camila‘s obviously killing it as per usual in her appropriately patriotic top.) Be young, be dope, be proud girls! This ought to be one hell of a debut record. Because when it comes to Fifth Harmony, anything could happen. ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN. ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN.

I crack up every time I see it! http://www.facebook.com/bryancitobarajas Bryan Barajas All Hail Queen Camila! DIana The Frank Ocean cover…now this? Beautiful. But Simon better not be playing games, doing these artistic covers to get cred for the generic teen pop songs to come. These girls are too talented; they deserve great songs. http://twitter.com/nadineinsatiabl Nadine Coyle Fan this is amazing! the best track on the Paradise edition. great vocals. AMAZE! Mierzwiak American is the most haunting, goosebump song of Lana Del Great. This… thing I just heard? No, thanks. http://twitter.com/Jollienn Jolien Please let this girls get the quality material they deserve. So much potential in the hands of Simon Cowell, scary times. Saraah Awesome! I just got a free card code for iTunes from freeitunesforever[dot]com crowther Give credit to Lauren as well. Not only were her vocals on this cover spot on, but she seems to have a knack for picking out unexpected songs for 5H to cover that really work for them (she’s the one who first suggested they do Anything Could Happen). .
