Who are Fifth Harmony? What was their first album called? We've got all your Fifth Harmony questions answered.
Fifth Harmony are the hot new girl band you've no doubt not stopped hearing about lately. The USA based group has five members - Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui.
Fifth Harmony weren't always called Fifth Harmony. The group's original name was 'LYLAS' (Love You Like A Sister), but due to a separate group being called 'The Lylas' they had to change their name. The girls then became '1432' (to stand for 'I Love You Too') but Simon Cowell, who was a judge on the X Factor series they were on, didn't like it. Once again, the girls changed their name, but this time they let the X Factor audience decide… That's how 'Fifth Harmony' was born.
'Fifth Harmony' was formed through The X Factor USA. The five girls originally auditioned individually, but were unsuccessful before getting to the judges houses stage of the competition. Similar to groups like One Direction and Little Mix, Simon Cowell chose five individual singers to form a group that went to judges houses in the 'groups' category. They made it to third place in the competition.
'Reflection' is the debut studio album by Fifth Harmony, it was released in February 2015 and features collaborations with Kid Ink and Tyga.
The lead single from the girls 'Reflection' album is called 'BO$$' and was released in July 2014. It features lyrics including "I want a Kanye-ye not a Ray J" and "This convo beat like Dre," but the most well known is from the chorus; "Boss Michelle Obama/ Purse so heavy getting' Oprah dolls."
