Fifth Harmony Postpones ‘7/27’ Release
Fifth Harmony has pushed back the release of sophomore album 7/27. Don’t worry, though, Harmonizers. In a new video, the girl group says that it is waiting until May 27, instead of May 20.
“The number 27, as you guys have already probably figured out, is quite important to us,” Lauren Jauregui says. “It means a lot of different things. And so to keep cohesive with the theme of 27, we have decided to push it one week to the 27th. One week will be nothing.”
The title 7/27 references the exact date in 2012 when Simon Cowell formed Fifth Harmony on The X Factor. This was also Lauren’s idea.
“Well, I thought it would be a good idea to have a number,” Normani Kordei said on 92.3 AMP. “I was like, ‘Hey girls, don’t you think it would be cool, visually, to have a number?’ Then Lauren texted and was like, ‘hey… 7/27.'”
Below, watch Fifth Harmony explain why the wait will be, wait for it, “Worth It.” (Sorry.)
7/27 will now be coming out on May 27th. It just feels right to us 💙https://t.co/NKn73slDGh
