The details about Fifth Harmony’s second studio album have been leaking out slowly. Unfortunately, the album doesn’t have a release date as of yet. However, Tinashe may have spilled the beans during her interview with Spin.
According to the article, the Tinashe-penned “She’s My Girl” may be Fifth Harmony’s lead single from their upcoming album. The R&B singer revealed that she wrote the song when she was on the road touring with Katy Perry. Even Fifth Harmony’s own Lauren Jauregui has praised the up-and-coming singer who has already opened arena tours.
“She’s a necessary player in the game. I think honesty is such a lost value in this industry at this point, especially when you’re dealing with mainstream pop. I think people have a hard time being true to themselves in the public eye – because people are so judgmental – but I really admire the fact that she does that and she doesn’t give a f**k what people say.”
Speaking of being true to yourself, 5H band member Normani Kordei told InStyle that they’re going to keep it real on their upcoming album. Fans should also expect a more mature sound from the ladies of Fifth Harmony.
“Definitely expect more maturity and vulnerability. Our last album didn’t really showcase our vulnerable side. But it’s okay to cry and get caught up in your emotions – that’s what’s realistic.”
Kordei also revealed that this album will have a lot more upbeat songs. Even as their sound evolves, one thing will stay the same: Fifth Harmony’s girl power mentality.
“Our overall message is to love each other. Society tends to pin women against each other, but we need to treat each other with kindness and compliment one another instead. Because women’s voices are the strongest when they’re together.”
If you think about it, the rumors about their new single “She’s My Girl” make it sound very much like a girl-powered anthem.
Earlier this month, rumors were circulating that Fifth Harmony were splitting up. But Camilla Cabello slammed those pesky rumors and confirmed that they are on the “final days” of the recording process during her interview backstage at the KIIS FM Jingle Ball concert. She also hinted about a new track that she’s very excited about. But it sounds like she may have hinted about the Tinashe-penned track.
“There’s this one song that we recorded today that I’m really excited about because, lyrically, I think it’s the best of the entire album. I can’t say the title, but I’m really excited about it, and it’s going to come out pretty soon, which is going to be fun.”
Here’s what else you can expect from Fifth Harmony’s new album. According to Billboard, the girl group has enlisted help from some of music’s biggest hit-makers and producers, including the Norweigan production duo Stargate, Mitch Allan and Jason Evigan, and Max Martin.
Fifth Harmony has already had quite the year. The girl group is still riding off their success of their breakout single “Worth It,” which is still playing everywhere. The song peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.
They also headlined their first major world tour, performing in sexy bodysuits and two-piece outfits. They were also honored at Billboard’s Women in Music event earlier this month, where they received the award for Group of the Year. In addition to all of this success, 5H has also been nominated for Favorite Group at the People’s Choice Awards, which will air live in Los Angeles on January 6.
