5H founding member Lauren Jauregui has the answers. “It was obviously a thought,” she said on a name change “because it was a prevalent thing that there’s four of us not five. Regardless, we were all very united on the fact that we didn’t want to change the name.” Speaking to MTV News, she added: “Fifth Harmony is the name that we grew up with and we worked for and it’s our brand. It’s who we are. It’s our whole entire moments. It’s what we spent five years on.”
Cabello broke hearts and sent the Internet into a spin when she split six months ago to pursue a solo career (her debut album is due out in September). They’ve all moved on, and earlier this month 5H released “Down” featuring Gucci Mane, their first post-Camila Cabello single. It doesn’t appear four will become five anytime soon. “The fans named us Fifth Harmony,” Dinah Jane Hansen said. “And now they’re the fifth member.” So that’s that.
