Wow, what a fun song!

Yesterday, the ladies from Fifth Harmony released a new single, Them Girls Be Like.

The tune is super catchy, up-beat, and makes a lot of references to selfies!

Our favorite line could possibly be alluding to an Instagram post from Beyoncé:

“Do you ever post your pics with no filter? Hashtag I woke up like this too."

Ha, we absolutely love anything to do with Queen B!

Between the relevant lyrics and beautiful vocals, we're definitely into this song!

Cher Lloyd Gets You Latched Onto Her With This Sam Smith Cover! Watch HERE!

YES!

We love us some Cher Lloyd, but we didn't know we'd love her even more if she covered Sam Smith!

Well, now she has, and the results are fantastic.

The X Factor alum went to SBTV to sing Disclosure's fab song, Latch, featuring her fellow Brit's vocals, and she really knocked it out of the park.

We've seen how good Cher can be when teaming up with someone else, like in her new music video with Demi Lovato, so it's no surprise to us that we love this performance as well.

Plus, she didn't just cover it, she made it her own by taking the tempo down a notch and simply singing along to a guitar.

Oh yeah, and she's doing it all live!

Ch-ch-check out Cher's AH-Mazing rendition of Latch right now (below)!
