Fifth Harmony is a girl group that formed out of contestants on the 2012 edition of The X Factor USA, chosen by Simon Cowell: Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane Hansen, and Camila Cabello. Despite being eliminated at third place, Fifth Harmony moved on to being signed with Syco Music.
Their first album, Reflection, was released on February 3rd, 2015, and peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200, becoming their second top ten on that chart following their 2013 EP, Better Together. The album also merited their first top 40 single, “Sledgehammer.”
Their second album, 7/27, was released on May 27th, 2016 and debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200, making it the group’s highest charting album to date. Its lead single, “Work From Home” featuring rapper Ty Dolla Sign, catapulted the girls even further into mainstream success. The track debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #12 and reached #4 after 13 weeks and became the girls' highest-charting single in the U.S. and the first top-five single in the country by a girl group since “Buttons” by The Pussycat Dolls.
On March 19, 2018, after almost six years of being a band, the group posted this statement to their social medias announcing their hiatus to “pursue solo endeavours:”
