As if the Hot 100-topping “Havana” needed any additional exposure, Pentatonix has put their signature a capella spin on the Camila Cabello smash, releasing their own version Friday (Feb. 23), complete with a corresponding music video.

The video is set in a living room, as the quintet sings its way through the breakthrough hit, backed by no instruments, but with some additional beatboxing. The group even takes on the rapped Young Thug verse, though their take lacks much actual rapping.

Notably, the group is without founding member Avi Kaplan, who has since been replaced by Matt Sallee, responsible for half of the beatboxing for this rendition. Kaplan left the group in May to spend more time with friends and family. 

As for song choice, Pentatonix's choice of “Havana” is timely: The song hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January, and is still currently lingering in the top five. It was the first single off Cabello’s self-titled debut album, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Check out Pentatonix’s take on the hit below.
