Watch Meghan Trainor Cover 5 Seconds of Summer's "Don't Stop"

BBC Radio 1 makes it a point to only invite the biggest and best names in pop music to their studio, everyone from Taylor Swift to Ed Sheeran. In addition to performing their own hits, the artists are often asked to cover a popular tune, with steadily entertaining results. Last September 5 Seconds of Summer performed a somber and sweet rendition of Blink-182's "I Miss You." So when Meghan Trainor recently visited the studio, she decided to give the boys a taste of their own medicine, tackling 5 Seconds' second (and lesser known) single, "Don't Stop."

When asked why she chose the track, Trainor said, "I love this song. It's one of my favorites from them. The boys are very sweet—I met them on the Jingle Ball tour, one of them, and I thought this song sounded perfect on ukulele. I put a little twist on it." That's right, folks: She covers this high energy pop-punk tune with a uke.

The cover almost seems to channel "All About That Bass," highlighting the sexual narrative of the track with something of a country twang. We wonder how the boys will react—and which one she met on tour!

Check out the performance above.
