Don’t expect Fifth Harmony to break up anytime soon. Despite the constant split rumors and fan speculation about the members not getting along, they announced that they are working on their next album and thinking about their lives together.
The young girl group is not sure what their future entails, but they are looking forward to seeing what it brings. Fifth Harmony released their latest album 7/27 back in May and have been on their “7/27 World Tour” together. The girls are now on the European leg of the world tour in Amsterdam to talk about what the future holds for Fifth Harmony, as reported via Official Charts.
Normani Kordei and Ally Brooke spoke to the outlet about their current and future plans. When their tour ends at the end of the year, the singers said that they are looking forward to resting and enjoying the holidays.
“We’re excited to see our friends and families and just relax. As much as we adore what we do and we’re eternally grateful, everyone needs a break sometimes. Everyone needs a few days just to breathe,” Ally said.
The group’s new single, “That’s My Girl,” is already out now. Normani revealed if there are more plans to release any more singles from 7/27. She said that they’re still actively promoting their new single and music video, but she teased that there may be more music in the near future.
“Right now we’re really pushing That’s My Girl, but we’re excited to see what the future holds. We’ve worked really hard for these past four years and we’re definitely in a good place right now. It’s nice to see all the hard work pay off. We know what we’ve been through – the blood sweat and tears. Even our team – they’ve lost so much sleep for the success of the group and they deserve so much credit. We don’t know what the future holds, but we’re excited to see what it is.”
And, although they plan to promote their latest top 10 collection 7/27 straight into 2017, the girl group is looking forward to their new album.
“I think the next album will probably be totally different,” Ally Brooke revealed in an interview with Digital Spy. “We’re still trying to figure that out right now, but we’re always going to make it next level.”
If they were to release their next single at this moment, Kordei said she would choose “No Way.”
“I would say ‘No Way’ because it’s definitely a step away from who Fifth Harmony has been presented before,” she said. “It would be really cool to step out ourselves, because it’s a more vulnerable side that you guys have not necessarily got an opportunity to see before. We’ve all massively connected with the song. It would be really cool to just be stripped down and raw and vulnerable. Like, no make-up, just us in our natural state.”
“I think that would be very beautiful, because we’re normally super woman empowerment – which we do love because it’s important to us – but it’s always super glam. We’d love to approach it differently.”
Fifth Harmony stuck to their female empowerment vibe when they stuck up for fellow girl group Little Mix, who were slammed for their provocative costumes on The X Factor U.K. Normani says she and her bandmates can relate to the criticism and body shaming they receive.
“It definitely makes me query as to where we are in the world right now, though,” Kordei said. “We definitely do get [criticism] sometimes. I remember when the Work From video came out and people had a bunch to say. We did also get a lot of support from our amazing fans, but it was kind of the outsiders that were the ones criticising us.”

“We’re women and we want to embrace that, so whatever makes us feel good… we work really hard every single day and we want that to be seen, and we want to be confident. If I want to wear shorts or a crop top, that doesn’t make necessarily a slut. It just means I’m confident in my body because I work really hard for it!”
