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.
