Fifth Harmony and One Direction have been spotted together twice in the past week, leading to questions about how a collaboration between the two ultra-successful bands would sound.
At least Seventeen and most of their faithful readers wouldn’t object, as Noelle Devoe penned for the magazine’s website this week. Calling them “the biggest boy band and girl group in the world at the moment,” the writer suggested a collaboration with their fellow X Factor alumni, Fifth Harmony, should happen before One Direction dissolves.
A collaboration isn’t out of the question. Fifth Harmony has had several, including one with band member Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes that resulted in the sexy single, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” the Inquisitr recently reported. In addition to that, Fifth Harmony is also working on another single with pop artist Meghan Trainor after the hit “Sledgehammer” was such a smash, MTV reported.
In that same article, the writer questioned Ally Brooke Hernandez from Fifth Harmony if they had plans for any other collaborations for their upcoming sophomore release. While not naming names, Ally did say that they “do have a plan” for a future collaboration with another group or artist. Could that be with One Direction?
It’s possible, especially since the two mega-groups get along so fabulously together. During the American Music Awards, members of Fifth Harmony sat directly behind One Direction. The groups provided viewers with a great set of photographs, another MTV article explained in pictorial form. Photos weren’t the only gifts for both bands that night as fans selected One Direction to win two awards and Fifth Harmony also earned a single victory.
Prior to that, One Direction has stepped out with their all-girl counterparts for a night out on the town, Hollywood Life reported earlier this month. As the groups headed to different night clubs, the bands celebrated the emotional final concert for One Direction in the immediate future. Even in that article, the writer questioned if the group outing would lead to a collaboration before the planned One Direction break-up.
The bands also share the stage exceptionally well. On Thanksgiving Day, One Direction and Fifth Harmony were together at the Mexican produced Premios Telehit, a concert that is billed as the final showcase for the English bandmates, Just Jared Jr. reported. There is at least one more joint concert in the groups’ immediate future as a San Jose radio station has put together a star-studded show with One Direction, Fifth Harmony, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Austin Mahone, and Nathan Sykes.
Would a future song between the two bands eventually lead to a tour, too? That’s a question that another article raises by giving 13 reasons why One Direction should join the American girl band for a concert series. In addition to being friends, the girls could be the fifth voice with the departure of Zayn Malik.
Any song between the two is sure to be a mega-hit like “Worth It” was for Fifth Harmony. The song helped Fifth Harmony to become Billboard’s Group of the Year, an honor that will be recognized at company’s Women In Music celebration. To show fans their appreciation, the group decided to give away their debut album for free.
Regardless of whether a future collaboration is in the works, One Direction is already set to release their next single to follow up “Drag Me Down” and “Perfect.” The song is titled, “Infinity,” and is the third One Direction single to be released from their Made in the A.M. album, Billboard reported.
