It’s going to be a night of collaborations at this year’s fan-voted CMT Music Awards on June 8, and there is at least one alliance that might make you raise an eyebrow . . . as well as raise up off the couch to dance.
Singer/songwriter Cam will be teaming up with pop group Fifth Harmony for a never-before-heard mash-up of her current single, “Mayday,” and Fifth Harmony’s pop hit, “Work From Home.”
“You know how we all listen to all kinds of music, this will be a way for fans of Fifth Harmony to learn about country music and fans of county music to learn about Fifth Harmony,” says Cam to Nash Country Daily. “It’s going to be fun. They are the first girl group to top the rhythmic charts in like 15 years. It’s really impressive.”
Fifth Harmony, known for their vocals as well as their provocative dance moves, is a five-member girl group that formed on the second season of Fox’s music competition show The X Factor. The group—Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Camila Cabello and Lauren Jauregui—rose to stardom after the release of their 2015 debut studio album, Reflection, which produced the singles “Sledgehammer” and “Worth It”
While Cam has yet to meet the ladies as of June 2, there is a lot of planning going on for the mash-up performance. “We’ve kind of all been planning things remotely because they just launched their new album [7/27], so they are running around like crazy. Hopefully my dance moves live up to their [moves]. I dance but I refuse to comment on whether I dance well or not. The point is, dancing is fun, and that’s what it is about, so I’m gonna stand by that,” says Cam with a laugh. “#SixthHarmony—that’s what I’m going for.”
You can check out Cam’s dance moves and mash-up when the ladies perform at the 2016 CMT Music Awards on June 8 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena at 7 p.m. CT. on CMT.
