Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei is opening up about going solo and revealing how Fifth Harmony deal with “issues” within the band.
Kordei spoke out about the ever-circulating solo and break-up rumors that plague Fifth Harmony in a new interview with Bombshell magazine, where the “Work From Home” singer confirmed that all five girls have plans to release solo music — just not yet.
Confirming that she is still “fully committed” to Fifth Harmony at the moment, Normani dropped the bombshell in the magazine that Fifth Harmony all have aspirations to embark on separate solo careers a little further down the line.
“Someday we all aspire to venture out and grow individually with our artistry. It’s impossible for five people to have the exact same ambitions all around,” Kordei told the magazine of Fifth Harmony’s solo aspirations. “To give you a more direct answer to your question and inquiring minds, the answer is yes, one day, but Fifth Harmony has tons of work to do until then.”
“Before the girls and I were put together we all had the intentions of being solo artist,” Normani continued to Bombshell in the new interview, referring to the Fifth Harmony girls becoming a band when they were put together after initially auditioning as solo artists on Fox’s The X Factor, before noting, “our destiny had something different in mind for now at least.”
But while Fifth Harmony may well go their separate ways somewhere down the line, Normani also confirmed to the magazine that the girls “have the same goal” right now as she got candid about how the girls deal with tension and “issues” within the band.
“I can definitely say that we’ve experienced the best and worst times together. We have been through more than you can began to imagine in the last three years,” Kordei said, admitting that she and her bandmates have their ups and downs just like everyone else.
“Any relationship has its strengths and weakness. I can honestly say that this pertains to us as well but we always find a way to get past whatever issue that may arise … This journey in our lives helped shape us to expand within our artistry,” Normani Kordei confessed.
Normani previously spoke out about the possibility of a solo career away from Fifth Harmony in a candid interview with Cliché magazine last month, where she confirmed that Fifth Harmony still has a way to go before anyone breaks away from the group.
“Yes, in the future,” Normani said when asked if she’s planning on carving out a solo career for herself. “In the beginning, we all had intentions of pursuing solo careers,” she acknowledged, “I’m still an individual, as well as the others, meaning we have slightly different visions and aspirations. We have a ton of work [to do] and much more to accomplish as Fifth Harmony before that happens.”
But just because the Fifth Harmony ladies have solo plans further down the line, Normai told magazine that she still feels “obligated” to her bandmates, at least for the time being.
“The way I see it, my blood, sweat, and tears are not just for me; it’s for Fifth Harmony as well. We have been blessed. Most groups have lead singers, but we don’t,” Kordei revealed.
“Each and every one of us is amazing in our own way. We have five beautiful women who exude talent, and I am blessed and honored to be one of those women,” Normani contined, “For me, the bottom line is: it’s all about respect and love, and I have both for Fifth Harmony.”
