Fifth Harmony's 7/27 is here! The album has already hit #1 in 53 countries, including in South Africa! Since the release of their debut, Reflection, last year, the girl group's rise has been meteoric: 2016 has been marked with plenty of high-profile performances from 5H, not to mention teases of the new record with the smash single Work from Home which reached number one on the Billboard’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart. Earlier this month, Normani Kordei of Fifth Harmony opened up about the group's unlikely career path and working with Ty Dolla $ign on the wildly successful “Work from Home.” She noted that notions of success can often be tricky in the music business. “You’re never guaranteed success, especially in the music industry. It’s pretty unpredictable—just like anything in life. And sometimes, you need to take a different approach, as a creative artist.” The title 7/27 has significant meaning to the group. On the 27 of July 2012, the five girls (Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jaureguiand) officially became Fifth Harmony, a life changing moment for all five girls. Releasing the album today a week earlier than scheduled was an important choice. "The number 27, as you guys have already probably figured out, is quite important to us. It means a lot of different things," "And so to keep cohesive with the theme of 27, we have decided to push it one week to the 27th. One week will be nothing." Along with the fans, music critics adore Fifth Harmony and have interesting things to say about their talent with many critics hailing the group as the renaissance of American girl pop.
