Fans of NBC’s The Sing Off or of the most recent Lucky Charms commercial know that a cappella group Pentatonix can tackle pretty much any song, artist or genre and make it sound beautiful and entertaining.
Pentatonix members Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi have their own little side group called Superfruit, and they decided to take on the queen herself, Miz Beyoncé. But they couldn’t decide which track to cover from her latest album, so they just did all of them in a condensed, five and half minute tour de force. Straying from their usual shtick, this musical ride isn’t a cappella. But true to form, it’s fantastic.
Of course listening to the full album is always preferable, but this is what we’d call Emergency Bey. When you only have a couple of minutes and you want to feel sassy but can’t pick a song, put on this Emergency Bey.
