Sounds like Fifth Harmony has its music all figured out. During a Twitter Q&A, member Camila Cabello revealed that the group’s upcoming sophomore album 7/27 picks up from where two of its biggest hits left off.

“I feel like sonically, we kind of found our thing to stick to,” she says. “I feel like in [2015 debut] Reflection we explored with that 808 and kind of like urban beat as a backbone, like the one you hear in ‘Bo$$’ and ‘Worth It’ and now ‘Work From Home.’ So I feel like that kind of represented us as a group really well. And so we kind of explored that more and more in this album. So sonically, I think that’s one thing you can expect from it.”

“I think that honestly, it’s just a fun body of work that people will leave listening to hopefully feeling confident and more, like, closer to us,” added Normani Kordei.

For 7/27, Fifth Harmony had worked with super-producer Max Martin and reconnected with Harmony Samuels, but also with the experimental R&B singer Tinashe — a roster that hinted at some combination of pop and R&B to come, much like Reflection. But while Reflection alternated from arena dance-pop to old-school R&B and back, 7/27 could well sound like 5H landing on a singular approach.
