It’s no secret that I love the girls of Fifth Harmony and everything they put out; so when I heard that they had a new cover song with Boyce Avenue, I was ecstatic. Boyce Avenue is another one of my favorite bands. Then to find out they were doing a cover to Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors?” I had to hear it for myself.
Just like with every Fifth Harmony song and Boyce Avenue, I absolutely adored this cover. It wasn’t my favorite cover from either one of them, but I think they did a solid job with it. It was nice to hear the girls voice’s alongside a male voice. Considering they are an all girl group, this gave them a nice touch that we’re not entirely used to hearing from them.
I have to admit, though, that Boyce Avenue definitely overpowered the girls. Now maybe this is because it was a cover on their channel and therefore technically their video, but still. It would have been nice to hear more harmonies between Boyce Avenue and Fifth Harmony. I think there was a lot they could do with that considering both groups are incredibly talented. Maybe it was just the song choice; the song that they chose doesn’t call for major harmonies or duets considering it is only sung by one person and is only meant to be sung by one person.
Overall, I think both groups gave it their all in the video and it was nice to also have a visual representation to go along with it. It’s cool to see the artists sitting alongside each other while performing. It also helps with depicting who sings each part.
Lastly, I think it was smart to have Boyce Avenue and Fifth Harmony collab together. Sometimes artists don’t realize the power of collaborating with others. It helps expand fanbases. For example, Fifth Harmony fans might not know Boyce Avenue and Boyce Avenue fans might not know Fifth Harmony. By coming together and doing a cover, they are able to get the word out about who they are to an entirely new fanbase.
