Ally Brooke, Normani, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui are taking a hiatus from performing as Fifth Harmony so they can focus on solo projects.

The girl group was formed in 2012, came in third on Season 2 of the U.S. competition series The X Factor and have since released three studio albums. Their songs include “Miss Movin’ On,” “Better Together” and “Worth It.”

Original member Camila Cabello left the ensemble in 2016 to record and perform alone. Her most recent hit was “Havana.”

“Reflecting on the past six years since we started on X-Factor, we’ve realized just how far we’ve come and we appreciate everything so much, more now than ever,” said a statement posted by the remaining quartet to Fifth Harmony’s official Twitter account Monday. “We’ve really had one hell of a memorable journey together and can’t begin to express our gratitude to y’all for coming along with us on this wild ride!” the message said.

“After six years going hard, non-stop, we also realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors. We are all very excited and grateful to be able to take this time to learn and grow creatively and really find our footing as individuals. In doing this we are allowing ourselves to gain new experiences, strengths and perspectives that we can bring back to our Fifth Harmony family.”

The women said shows scheduled through the end of the year will go on as planned.

Sam Smith is one of Fifth Harmony’s biggest fans and he was heartbroken after learning the news that the girl group will be taking an indefinite hiatus.

“FIFTH HARMONY!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Sam tweeted, using over 50 exclamation points in his post.

Sam previously met the girls of the group during his Carpool Karaoke segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden. He called the moment a “dream.”

Fifth Harmony has three live shows scheduled before they wrap up their run as a group.


Shawn Mendes keeps dropping hints about his next studio album, and his latest tease is the biggest yet.

On Monday, the singer took to social media to promote his next record, with one simple – but very telling – photo of a giant billboard in what appears to be New York City, with his face on it. The billboard reads, “Shawn Mendes Coming Soon.”

While the singer hasn’t shared any specific message alongside the photo, or officially announced the name of his third record, the billboard tease could mean that Mendes’ next album is going to be self-titled.

Mendes previously posted a blank canvas image and updated his profile picture to be the same tan background color with flowers as its focal point, and cleared his website so it, too, is a blank slate, so maybe we can expect an album drop, or official announcement any day now.

Shawn will be on the Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday, March 28th.
