Camila Cabello Recorded a Secret Version Of "Closer"
The Chainsmokers' song "Closer" was one of the biggest songs of 2016. The tune featuring Halsey, was being played on the radio almost every hour, spent 12 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and scored over a billion views on YouTube.
But it seems there was almost another leading lady involved in the song...
In a 10-second clip leaked on Twitter this week, a recording of the song featuring Camila Cabello went viral. In it, she sings in her distinctive voice, "Baby, pull me closer in the back seat of your Rover," and also throws in a few signature "wooahhhs."

There's no word on who leaked the clip, but it does raise a few questions. Was Camila originally supposed to sing on the track? Did her Fifth Harmony contract prevent her from doing so? Or did The Chainsmokers just prefer Halsey's voice?
We love Camila's unique take on the song, but nothing beats Halsey's version.
