Harmonizers all over the world are currently devastated.
Just a few hours ago, an official statement was posted on Fifth Harmony’s social media accounts, announcing that Camila Cabello has left the all-female singing troupe. So should Fifth Harmony consider changing their name to Fourth Harmony?
The statement reads:
“After 4 and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representatives that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony. We wish her well.
You Harmonizers have been there with us since the beginning, you’ve supported us, you’ve rejoiced and cried with us, you’ve grown with us, and with your love and support we will continue on. That being said, we are excited to announce that we will be moving forward with the 4 of us – Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui – for our fans. We are 4 strong, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavours.
We are excited for our future, and we can’t wait for what the new year brings. Harmonizers, we are in this together. We love you with all of our heart,” the lengthy screenshot message concluded.
Although the statement assures fans that the 4 women – Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane Hansen and Lauren Jauregui – will continue carrying the Fifth Harmony flag, it also notes that the singers will continue to explore “solo endeavours” moving forward. Is this an indication that future departures are already in the works?
Fans have been speculating for some time that changes to the “X-Factor”-created group lineup were bound to happen, but the question was who would actually be the one to depart first. While many were shocked, others were less than surprised by the news.
“Why are people surprised? They all auditioned as solo artists; that was what they originally wanted. She’s so good on her own and honestly doesn’t fit in with the more urban songs Fifth Harmony does. You can always hear her over everyone else. I think this will be a great move for all involved. Fifth Harmony can have success without Camila and Camila can have major success going solo. Win-win,” wrote Facebook user Christina Gutierrez.
It’s still weird though that the quartet announced Camila’s departure and that the notification didn’t come from the woman herself.
What are your thoughts on Fifth Harmony’s future, Harmonizers?
