They co-wrote more than half of it.

Fifth Harmony is stronger than ever.

The ladies sat down with Billboard to chat about their new material, which they believe is their best effort yet.

“We’re really experimenting with a lot of different sounds,” Ally Brooke Hernandez says, adding that the album includes a mix of “strong pop melodies” as well as “dark urban sounds.” She says for the first time ever, they’ve been playing their own music non-stop.

Normani Kordei chimed in that they “[co-]wrote more than half of our album.” According to her, “it means more.”

The group released their first single as a quartet last week. It’s titled “Down,” and if it’s a signifier of what’s to come, we could be in trouble… Their release got off to a rocky start after Terror Jr claimed it was a total rip-off of their song “Come First.” The similarities are undeniable, and the lyrics don’t exactly an intimate stream of consciousness. Either they’re in hype mode, or the new tunes are genuinely personal. We’ll have to wait and see.
