Fifth Harmony Delay ‘Reflection’ Album Release To January

Published: Friday 7th Nov 2014 by Sam

Fans of Fifth Harmony will have to wait slightly longer for the group’s debut album ‘Reflection’.

The release window for the set has moved around a fair bit this year, however the LP was most recently confirmed to arrive on December 16th.

Today, though, the quintet revealed that the project – preceded by singles ‘Bo$$’ and ‘Sledgehammer’ – will now hit retail in January.

Details below…

While a new date has been confirmed (January 26th), supporters of the group have taken to social media to vent.

Hoping to quell the commotion, member Camilla explained that the main reason for the hold-up is because they’re still selecting tracks for the final tracklist.



On the one hand, the new date allows the ladies to avoid the crowded holiday window. Perhaps affording them the ability to shine in a less packed climate.

However, there’s also the fact that the group has many young fans, who would no doubt have liked to unwrap their new album from under their trees this Christmas. From a commercial standpoint too, there’s also the reality that folk are more generous with their spending come the holidays. As such, to put it simply, a major sales opportunity may have been missed amidst the latest move-around – especially as wallets are notoriously tighter in Q1 of the following year due to shoppers being “spent out” from the holidays.

Still, what’s done is done. It’s clear Team Harmony want more set-up time for the roll-out.  Hopefully their strategy pays off.

    Makes sense. Gives them more time to focus on making one of their songs are actual hit and also allows them to avoid getting lost in the holiday glut.

      True! so glad she finally dropped it. Too bad ATM Jam didn’t make it in but since she split from Interscope then I understand why..but anyways this is better than nothing. Hope she gets a better distribution deal from another label in the future!

    LOL at all their fans that say their better than Beyonce and that just because they don’t have an album out, when they have Simon “Cash” Cowell on their side…

    I guess so, but most delays get lost in the glut anyway, so they just should have went ahead and released it.

    It actually jut fell off the UK &US Charts……. weird!

    Who cares? This album will come and go. By March no one will talk about them.

  7. Musika November 7, 2014

    Despite the huge support from their fanbase, their singles aren’t charting very high at the charts. If singles don’t chart well, then album could potentially flop so that’s probably why its delayed. I reckon they should just release EPs since those are easier to sell. Still supporting these girls! Harmonizer all the way!

    Broke With Expensive Taste was universally acclaimed by music critics, with them lauded the eclecticism, the production, Banks’ rapping skills, lyrics and clever wordplay. <—– THAT'S MY B****!!!

    ….they have talent but their music sucks. Aimed at children but trying so hard to sound and look mature

  10. Sherry November 7, 2014

    Never heard of them…

    I find it hard for them to do well. No one really knows them, female groups haven’t been successful since 08 (welcome to the doll house and doll domination). And these girls had top 10 hits, tv shows etc, and still dk went gold and pcd 400k max. 5h are talented and look good and have that swag but they are too radio disney and not in the Katy perry way. Their music isn’t mature enough and not the swag they carry isn’t right for their demographic they want to appeal to.
