Fifth Harmony Reportedly Split Because Epic Records Favored Camila

Harmonizers rejoice! Fifth Harmony might not be on hiatus indefinitely.

Harmonizers rejoice! Fifth Harmony might not be on hiatus indefinitely.

The girls announced this week they’re taking a break form from the band for an undetermined amount of time (that sounded like code for forever), but a new report from claims they’ll eventually reunite, just not at their current label Epic Records.

The alleged cause for leaving? Sources claim Epic gave former band member Camila Cabello “first dibs on all potential hits.” It’s worth mentioning Camila co-wrote every song on her No. 1 album, so interpret this how you’d like.

Fifth Harmony Was Still Throwing Shade At Camila Cabello

“Camila’s debut album received more financial backing and promotion than any of the group’s albums and it became clear that they could no longer stay on the same label, especially once they learned Camila was getting first dibs on all the potential hits that were being sent into the label,” an insider tells them. “The plan is to find a way to reunite once they can find a way to do so at another label so fans needn’t worry. They will be back, just not at Epic.”

This makes sense. Earlier this year, Billboard reported Lauren Jauregui had plans to leave Epic and release a solo record on Columbia Records.

In their letter to fans announcing the hiatus, 5H said they “realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors.”

I can definitely see Fifth Harmony reuniting in a couple of years after trying out some solo stuff. No shade, but bookmark me.
