Fifth Harmony Re-Sign With Epic Records As Four-Piece / New Album Due This Year

Published: Friday 6th Jan 2017 by Sam

Fifth Harmony‘s future as a four-piece is looking promising following news that the quad have re-signed with Epic Records.

At the point Camila Cabello exited, it was revealed that the group had fulfilled certain obligations with the Sony imprint. A reality which meant their relationship with the label moving forward hinged on whether LA Reid and co wanted to exercise their legal right to “pick up their option.”

Well, it has now been confirmed that that’s what has indeed happened.

Dive below for details…

Speaking to Billboard, reps for the group announced the news – but didn’t elaborate.

The most interesting tea, however, came courtesy of a “source” close to the situation.

Per the report, artists like 5H who were signed by way of reality shows are often subject to dismal deals.

Yet, bolstered by notable success – which includes 7 million U.S. digital downloads, 1.6 billion on-demand streams, and two top five Billboard Hot 100 hits, the group apparently had better leverage in negotiations this go round.

Described as a “win-win” situation, the source revealed that the ladies have won ownership of their trademark back and are readying an album for 2017. The unnamed individual added:

“They’re in a position to have more creative involvement and really direct where they want their music to go. They’re a huge name on the Epic roster so it makes sense to keep them there and work on another hit album. While, at the same time it benefits the girls to stay as well and really own the direction they’re going in rather than litigate themselves out of a deal.”

As for the perceived awkwardness attached to 5H and Cabello being on the same label, working on new music, at the same time, there’s apparently nothing to worry about. Music attorney Debra White said of that situation:

“It proves that Epic/Syco is really believing in the brand, and they don’t give a sh*t if it’s Fourth or Fifth Harmony. They’re going to find amazing songs and make a go of it.”

The whole episode feels like a titillating episode of ‘Sunset Beach.’ What’ll happen next? Stay tuned!

  2. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 January 6, 2017

    No h** gone stop the show! The best revenge is to keep on moving and become even more successful. Trust and believe when ole girl goes “solo” and flops she will regret leaving this group!

  3. gina January 6, 2017

    maybe they’ll finally get a platinum album now…

  4. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn is ? January 6, 2017

    I hope they make it as a foursome just so they can rub it in Camilla face.

  5. Babylove January 6, 2017

    Cant wait for the girls new single and also Caramel Scherzinger new single ala Baby Love type of flop

    • chille January 10, 2017

      chiiiiile u did it sis

  6. keepit100 January 6, 2017

    I honestly think it’s the most absurd thing, that they are wanting to stay together, but yet they all want to go solo. WHATS THE POINT IN BEING A GROUP.

    • Roab January 6, 2017

      Agreed, they honestly aren’t even that great. No one will remember them in another year or so…but I wish them all luck. Just not that great to be holding on as as a group. I fully agree

    • camila January 6, 2017

      THANK YOU. Learn from little mix

    • MusicLife January 6, 2017

      Beyonce wanted to go solo but was in DC before doing so. It’s all about timing and why ruin the brand they’ve built already and or prematurely?

  7. 2bad2bme January 6, 2017

    I hate the fact that albums don’t last no more than a year ?

    They should so lead the new album with their own take on Survivor with some not so subtle shady lyrics directed at Camila.

    • camila January 6, 2017

      make it all about camila i see

  10. camila January 6, 2017

    the fact that everyone hates camila for doing exactly what they’ve all wanted to do or have been doing is baffling. – all but two members have released solo material. no one gave norman s*** when she decided to dance for sean bankhead. i cant wait for camila to rise and for fifth harmony to rise also.. but lets be honest camila has always been the b**** to hate since demi said she stood out the most. she’s the most popular and the most talented. she spent her time recording and learning instruments while the rest sat on IG and snap. Camila already had two number ones thanks to HER fans and not the people who featured her. She’ll be just fine

    • Paulo January 6, 2017

      … Demi meant it as a backhanded compliment – she was criticizing their lack of cohesiveness. I seriously wish Camilla the best of luck – she was just a kid when she agreed to the group – and wanting to record your own solo thing is not a problçem but she used the group and the 4 girls this whole time. you can’t be mad at people for noticing your fav’s blatant ego and lack of interest into developing the group.

      • camila January 6, 2017

        she didn’t use the group, and if thats the case THEY ALL ARE DOING THE SAME THING

    • Oh Please January 6, 2017

      Ugh, shut up!

      • camila January 6, 2017

        b****, fight me you little ho

  11. camila January 6, 2017

    but again with all this hate lets see if you guys truly support fifth harmony. writing opinions about them being great on thatgrapejuice isn’t gonna get them a number one.

    • Oh Please January 6, 2017

      Shut your obsessed ass up.

  12. Kimk January 6, 2017

    They need another girl

    • Oh Please January 6, 2017

      No tf they don’t, it looks stupid for groups to have more than 4 members.

  13. Mr. CEE January 6, 2017

    Come thru, Girls…YAAAAASSSS!!!!!

  14. MusicLife January 6, 2017

    I think it’s a smart move for them to continue with them to see if they still can continue their rise to superstatmdom. I mean it just began in summer 2015 with “worth it,” I can’t wait to see who will cover the Camila vocals on their hits when performing live.

    With Danity Kane they basically gave all D.Woods vocals to Shannon who didn’t have many verse sections on singles.

  15. Danny Bey January 6, 2017

    Im SO here for this. This picture is EVERYTHING too. I can deal with Ally (for now), but soon as shes gone and its a 3 -piece, I will stan DOWN for 3H!!!

  16. Danny Bey January 6, 2017

    Also, YASSSSS for that Sunset Beach reference!! That was my soap growing up!!!!

  17. SMH January 6, 2017

    Their albums still flop though. So there’s that…

  18. LiLi’n’RiRi January 8, 2017

    Really when it comes down to it, all the members of 5H are babes, and so they got the brand/image down. THEY’RE HOT. Thats really all u need as far as an image for a pop-star nowadays as shallow as that sounds. As long as 4H and Camilla release quality albums and hit singles, they’ll both be fine. If not, well this is just another case of ‘fun.’
