Gleeks unite! Regionals are right around the corner on Glee, and the New Directions have never been more determined to get to Nationals. The season finale should be full of drama: from Ryder finally getting a lead on his mysterious chat buddy to Brittany copping a new attitude from her M.I.T. trip, plenty will distract the singing students from their work onstage.

Here, get an exclusive first listen to a moment from the finale: the group's cover of Icona Pop's "I Love It." The cover maintains the original track's hard electro beat and dance-pop vocals, then throws in the show's signature harmonies and some impressive solos. We can only hope it serves them well on their road to Nationals.

Catch the season finale of Glee on Thursday, May 9th at 9 p.m. EST on Fox.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
