Dinah Jane's birthday is on June 22, which makes her a cancer who, in her words, is "so private but feels a lot." And in her just-released, brand-new three-song bundle, the Fifth Harmony songstress definitely shows her emotional side -- but this time, a lot less privately.
The new self-titled set of songs, which dropped early Friday (April 18), is Dinah's first solo project on the heels of her 2018 "Bottled Up" collab with Ty Dolla $ign and Marc E. Bassy. Dinah Jane 1 touches on romantic missed connections in "Pass Me By," listening to the same old, same old in "Heard It All Before," and in the cathartic "Fix It," she discusses an infinitely more difficult topic to open up about: family issues. With lyrics like "There’s no room for me in this home/ So I go do it myself because it's all I know" and "I’m tired of fighting/ Will we ever find peace?," the tune clearly delves into a realm that she's kept inside all her life.
"I didn’t want to release it, but L.A. [Reid] told me, ‘This is the most personal song I’ve ever heard in my life. I think you should release it,’" she tells Billboard of her Hitco label boss. "And I thought, 'You know what? It’s time I let people know what’s going on and what my truth is.’"
