The popular girl group Fifth Harmony, which is currently on a hiatus since 2018, was trending on Twitter after they lost the numero uno position of the biggest debut of an all-girl band EP on the Billboard 200 chart. The renowned K-pop group TWICE replaced them after they landed at the sixth position this week with their new summer release 'Taste of Love’ EP with 46,000 units as compared to Fifth Harmony’s 2013 EP ‘Better Together’ with 26,000 units.

Fifth Harmony, which consisted of members Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui become the hot topic of discussion as many social media users discussed how messy the group was with no chemistry. Camila Cabello, who is now one of the top global singers, was also a part of the group until 2016. The girl band was formed in 2012.

Was Fifth Harmony the messiest group with no chemistry?

The internet was surely impressed with the group’s discography but they did address the elephant in the room. Many social media users pointed out that the Fifth Harmony members did not really have any chemistry whether it was during stage performances or while recording songs. A few also pointed out how the group was just a random selection of girls.

Based in Miami, the members of Fifth Harmony had signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and LA Reid's label Epic Records after securing the third position on ‘The X Factor’ in 2012. The group delivered hit singles such as ‘Boss’, ‘Sledgehammer’ and ‘Worth It’ among others. Selling over 15M records, the group scooped three MTV Europe Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, four iHeartRadio Music Awards, an American Music Award, a Billboard Women in Music award and 10 Teen Choice Awards. Fifth Harmony was also named as “the biggest girl group of the 2010s” by Billboard. However, after Cabello left the group over creative differences in 2016, the rest of the members only lasted for two more years as the band went on a hiatus in 2018. The members, as of now, are pursuing their solo careers.



‘Fifth Harmony was a mess at times’

A lot of social media users went down memory lane and discussed how Fifth Harmony had several issues but still had a huge impact on listeners. One user posted, “Y’all can say anything about fifth harmony being a messiest group but the girls were making pop perfection and y’all can’t lie about it.” One added, “Fifth Harmony might be a messy girl group, but y'all can't deny the impact they had. They literally raised an entire generation of lesbians and bisexuals while breaking countless records at the same time.”
One user shared, “Do all fifth harmony fans live in a universe where all five of them are together? So y’all only listen to 1 album?” Another posted, “Yes fifth harmony has no chemistry but they had an amazing discography like my gawd.” The next one asserted, “Not the singing, not the dancing, not the hits, nada. little mix is the blue print of what a girl group should be. Fifth harmony was a random selection of girls who had NO chemistry on stage.” Meanwhile, another chimed in and said, “People still comparing fifth harmony to other girl groups in 2021? They ain’t even together. They were successful admit it and get over it LOL.” One concluded, “look, maybe fifth harmony was a mess at times BUT they had hits, just a shitty label.”
