Ally Brooke Memoir Reveals Fifth Harmony Almost Replaced Camila Cabello With Another ‘Top Singer’

Published: Tuesday 13th Oct 2020 by Rashad

At just 27-years-young, former Fifth Harmony hitmaker Ally Brooke has a life story many could only dream about – a truth evidenced earnestly by the singer’s memoir, ‘Finding Your Harmony: Dream Big, Have Faith and Achieve More Than You Can Imagine (released Tuesday, October 13).

Across its 336 pages, Brooke not only dishes on her hesitation to do ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ but also waiting until marriage to lose her virginity, the long fight to be respected by labels as a solo artist, the ridicule she suffered over her physical appearance during the height of her time with 5H, and so much more.

As it relates to the chart-topping group, Ally discusses the quintet-turned-quartet at length throughout the autobiography but – despite disclosing she doesn’t keep in touch with her groupmates much since their 2018 disbandment – mentions everyone by name except Camila Cabello.

We wonder why…

Cabello left Fifth Harmony in late 2016 to embark on a sizzling solo career, a departure the remaining girls weren’t shy about expressing their disapproval of.

Recently taking to our friends at Stylecaster, Brooke revisits her memoir’s breakdown of what happened after the ‘Havana’ hitmaker’s exit.

“There were several different options and routes we could’ve taken. There were a lot of different ideas floating around,” Ally says. “But the four of us decided, ‘Hey. We think it would be odd to all of a sudden bring someone.’ The four of us have a history, and we know what we went through together. We know our journey. We know each other. We felt like there was no question that we should continue on as we were.”

Ally also suggested their management considered launching a reality show in search for a fifth member as well as replacing Camila with other well known female singers and celebrities of the day.

While she would not specify who, fan theories have thrown around names like Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha, and Charli XCX.

    TGJ doing clown journalism again with that incomplete headline

    They wanted a replacement after Camila left cause the had no lead singer

    Even they found a replacement, they would have still flopped HARD.

    Camila carried that group to success.
    Immediately she left , the group fell apart, now look at Camila today, look at all the other 4 flops.

    Camila is richer and more successful than all 4 girls combined 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

      No, Camila could’ve easily been replaced…but anyone. She’s nothing special as her romance album sales showed 😩🤣

        Camila has 2 platinum albums , 3 grammy nominations, 2 number 1 songs etc while the others cant ever release a second single or album

        Normani literally started her career on dancing with the stars, same with ally.

    “mentions everyone by name except Camila Cabello.”

    Dumb TGJ back at it again

    She does mention Camila’s name.
    If she doesnt mention Camila’s name who would buy this book?
    No Camila no clout

    They definitely should have replaced that b****. I could see somebody like Pia Mia or any other C-list singer around their age would have done well, because a four member group called Fifth Harmony no longer made sense

    Their management was the ever so tacky Larry Rudolph who all Britney fans cannot stand, so I believe he was stupid enough to float this idea around.

    U can tell all other ex-band mates are hating camila for passion😂🤣😂 drama queens

  6. Keeping it real October 14, 2020

    Honestly they should have stayed together and replaced camila cause the 4 of them been flopping since they went solo. Jasmine v or pia mia would have been good choices to step in

  7. POPS+Muva October 14, 2020

    clearly after reading it says that they tried to look for someone new (after camila left) this headline is clickbait

  8. Jake October 14, 2020

    Probably JoJo

  9. Paulo October 14, 2020

    artists need to listen to fans more often. had they rebranded themselves as H4RMONY and kept pushing as a group for at least one more album like their Twitter stans requested, they’d all be doing bigger things in their solo careers now. but kudos to Ally for her solo grind

    but the headline is wrong. “another top singer” suggests that Crowmila is a top singer and everybody knows Screecherita ain’t s***

      Lol you are making false statements
