Is a Fifth Harmony Christmas album in the works? Not yet, but it would be “Worth It” according to a recent MTV News article.
That’s the sentiment after Fifth Harmony sang a bone-chilling a cappella rendition of “Silent Night” at a concert in New York City this week. As the group performed the Christmas classic, snowflakes fell from the ceiling, creating a festive atmosphere for the start of their set according to Teen Vogue.
A single song by Fifth Harmony is not the only thing fans have to go by when hoping a Christmas album is in the works. Indeed, the female quintet — comprised of Camila Cabello, Normani Kordei Hamilton, Lauren Jauregui, Allyson Brooke Hernandez, and Dinah Jane Hansen — have covered numerous Christmas songs in the past. Videos exist for several of the covers, including “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” and “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” with Meghan Trainor.
Christmas albums are popular items for several artists. Elvis Presley, Mariah Carey, the Jackson 5, and N*SYNC are among the multitude of musicians and bands to have recorded a holiday-themed compilation.
The Jingle Ball performance was part of the star-studded iHeartRadio concert series. The New York version of the show included top artists like Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, 5 Seconds of Summer, Tove Lo, R. City, Conrad Sewell, DNCE, Hailee Steinfield and Fetty Wap, among others.
As a part of the Jingle Ball performance, Fifth Harmony vocalist Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes sang their new popular song, “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” The artists wrote the song while they were touring, penning the song in roughly 30 minutes according to a recent Inquisitr article.
Is the sultry single the only thing the Fifth Harmony star and the “Stitches” singer share? Several rumors have surfaced that the artists are more than friends, but both Cabello and Mendes have denied the allegations. For her part, Camila said she is into the “bad boy persona” and said that Shawn does not fit into that category.
Billboard honored Fifth Harmony with their Group of the Year award at the organization’s Women In Music 2015 ceremony Friday. The group wore coordinating black-and-white ensembles to receive the award, and the ladies launched into renditions of their hit “Worth It” after receiving the award. The group also covered Destiny’s Child’s “Independent Women” and Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family.”
Next up for the two bands is a trip to a live performance at the Univision reality show La Banda. The bands will be joined by Pitbull and Wisin during the finale. X-Factor judge Simon Cowell, the reality genius behind the boy-band competition, is also scheduled to appear via video, Billboard reported Sunday.
