It's official: every member of Fifth Harmony has a solo deal now. Ally Brooke celebrated her signing with Latium Entertainment/Atlantic Records on Tuesday (Aug. 28) with a heartfelt post about how the occasion marked the fulfillment of a childhood dream.   

"Story time friends... I had a dream since I was 12 years old to be signed to a label," she wrote alongside a photo next to the Atlantic logo. "My parents brought me from San Antonio to LA at that tender age, simply because they believed in me. We didn't have much, but we sure had a dream. We took every meeting, every session, every opportunity imaginable, and worked our behinds off for YEARS. Laughing, crying, sacrificing, hoping, wishing, and praying."    

Fast forward to Tuesday and Brooke was overjoyed to think of her 12 year-old self crying at the sight of where she's landed. "Now this is where it all begins!" she added. "I can't wait for y'all to hear everything I'm working on!!!!!!!!!!"   

Atlantic confirmed the signing in a press release on Wednesday (Aug. 29), in which it teased a debut solo single later this fall. “There are no words to describe how happy I am to be with Atlantic Records/Latium Artists," Brooke said in a statement. "It is a real dream come true. I am extremely thankful to have a label and team who fiercely believe in me and my vision. It is the greatest gift you can ask for as an artist. I can’t wait to share our art with the world!” 

The singer also posted a pic with what she called her "Dream Team," which includes Atlantic Records Chairman/COO Julie Greenwald, Atlantic Chairman/CEO Criag Kallman, Latium CEO Charles Chavez and manager Will Bracey.

On Aug. 5 Brooke hinted that her solo debut was coming, posting a video from the studio where she said she's been "working my tail off on this music." Brooke joins fellow Latium acts MAGIC!, Play-N-Skills and Messiah. Since 5H announced their hiatus in march, Brooke has been a featured vocalist on DJ Topic's "Perfect" and Lost Kings' "Look At Us Now."
