UC Vocaholics Affectionately Cover Drake, Justin Bieber And More In New Mashup




We have to give credit where credit is due. And more needs to be given to the art that is mashups.

For starters, they're much harder to execute than you would believe. Imagine your musical director slaving away over an overheated desktop computer, painstakingly trying to determine the right key for two completely different songs to live in, and simultaneously being in the right vocal range of your a cappella group's abilities.

Imagine that entire process involving only two songs. Well, what about a mashup that involves 5, 6, or even 7 songs? The madness!

Well, the UC Vocaholics just took us all to school on how to deliver such a feat.

In their newly released mashup "Don't Worry, Fake Love Yourself" the coed group from the University of Cincinnati meticulously strings together an assortment of pop and hip-hop tunes all centered on the heavier side of love. From Drake's "Fake Love" to Swedish House Mafia's "Don't You Worry Child" the arrangement has the right blend of progressive feel and somber undertones.
It's a performance that just feels right for today, delivering so many emotional messages, while never losing the entertainment value.

Props to the Vocaholics for this expressive and splendid video.
