A decade ago, we got to hear Fall Out Boy cover “Beat It” (along with John Mayer!) and now, we’ve been gifted the down-for-whatever rockers’ take on another iconic ‘80s pop smash. 

Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” is maybe one of the ten most pristinely perfect pop songs ever, virtually impossible to improve in any way, but that didn’t stop the boys from trying their hand at a recent session in Spotify’s New York City studio. 

The two-song session also featured a recording of their recent caps-locked single “HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON’T,” which swaps trop-house for acoustic strumming. The album version currently sits at No. 34 on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart, its highest mark yet in five weeks on the Top 40 radio-measuring tally. 

Take a listen to the new tracks below.
