Fifth Harmony Shakes Up Rhythmic’s Top 40 Charts
Harmonizers everywhere rejoice. The girl group Fifth Harmony’s song “Worth It” featuring Kid Ink has made it to number 34 on the Mediabase rhythmic airplay chart, Headline Planet reports. Fifth Harmony, who first rose to fame after appearing on Fox’s The X Factor, released their album Reflection. Headline Planet added that the song “Worth It” is cut from Fifth Harmony’s album Reflection, which was produced by Syco Music and Epic Records. Coincidentally enough, Syco Music is owned by notorious American Idol judge Simon Cowell, creator of The X Factor.
Earlier today, Fifth Harmony tweeted fans about their tour being streamed via Yahoo Live, telling them that “…these #boss divas air on #YahooLive TONIGHT, 5:50 pm PT,” a reference to the song “Boss”, which is on their debut album.
Fifth Harmony is composed of Ally Brooke Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabelo, and Normani Hamilton, and cites numerous musical influences amongst the five members, including American bands Paramore and Journey, as well as Latina artist Celia Cruz, according to their website.
The group’s Twitter reports that they are currently in the midst of their Reflection Tour, and will appear alongside Trevor Moran at the Spring Fling event in April, which is sponsored by New York-based radio station Z100. As MTV News mentioned, the group’s Reflection Tour will begin March 24 at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre, and ends June 28 in Hersheypark Stadium in Pennsylvania. In case you need an indication of just how quickly Fifth Harmony has risen, tickets to their shows in Boston and Glenside, PA are already sold out, according to the group’s official website.
MTV also noted that Fifth Harmony will appear alongside Meghan Trainor at this year’s Kid’s Choice Awards, which is hosted annually by Nickelodeon. The group’s song “Worth It” rose nine places on the Mediabase airplay charts as well as hitting number 33 on Pop Radio’s airplay charts, Headline Planet mentioned. Fifth Harmony, whom it was recently speculated could be collaborating with fellow X Factor performers One Direction, were complimented by a tweet from Liam Payne, who said he loved the song “Reflection” and hinted that a remix might be in the making, Inquisitr reported this past February.
Whether you’re a fan of Fifth Harmony or not, you’ve got to give them props for how quickly they went from X Factor contestants to a musical phenomenon. Interestingly enough, the group’s official site reports that several members of Fifth Harmony had never sung publicly before their TV appearance; however, Camila Cabelo knew right away that music was something she had to do. “I didn’t want those two minutes [the band’s appearance on The X Factor] to end,” Miss Cabelo stated on the band’s official site, “….I knew performing was the only thing I could see myself doing for the rest of my life.”
