Girl Group Fifth Harmony just dropped their album and it’s rocking. If you’re looking for some girl power jams to get you dancing, you’ve come to the right place.
The girl group formed from the US X-Factor 2012 that brought us hits like BO$$ and Sledgehammer have finally released their full-length album today and we are so excited. These ladies recently won a VMA for Artist To Watch, and this album proves why the world should watch out.
We landed an exclusive interview with the five-piece, and here’s what they had to say about their new album Reflection.
the Lala: So your album, Reflection, is coming out super soon! What can you tell us about the recording process, choosing the songs, and the final product?
Fifth Harmony: The recording process was crazy, there was a lot of blood, sweat and tears. We’re so grateful for the process, but we are more excited for the final product and for people to finally hear it.
What is the overall theme of your album?
FH: There’s definitely a mix, but we would say the main themes are girl empowerment and having fun.
What song are you most excited for fans to hear and why?
FH: Reflection – Reflection is our baby, all 5 of us are equally attached to it. It’s a fun way of showing girl power. Like Mariah-We have some Mariah fans in the group that were excited to reference and sample her. It’s a really good spring/summer song to jam out to with your friends. It’s fun to sing.
What makes you guys different than other acts right now?
FH: There are not many girl groups out there and we all come from different backgrounds. We represent different sizes, personalities, and ethnicities.
You guys have talked about women’s empowerment and feminism in the past. Why do you think that these are important issues?
FH: It’s important for girls to support each other and not tear each other down. The feminist movement is something that has come to light in a new way through social media and people our age and it affects all of us.
If you could go back in time and give your “little self” advice, what would you say?
Normani: Have more confidence in yourself. Find beauty in the things that make you, You.
Dinah: It’s so easy to compare yourself to others but just know that you’re special in your own way.
