Normani Kordei: Music Group "Fifth Harmony" new album "7/27"

“Work From Home,” the record’s first single, has become an instant hit, reaching the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and just notched the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Pop Songs chart dated June 4. The track, featuring Ty Dolla $ign, previously earned Fifth Harmony their first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and is the first song to reach the top 10 from a girl group since 2008; it also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Rhythmic Songs chart, marking the first girl group to top the chart in 15 years. The song is currently #1 on the Top 40 airplay charts.

Critics and fans alike are already praising the album’s infectious sounds and powerful themes that Fifth Harmony is known for. TIME noted that the “group’s ambitions come into focus on songs about empowerment” and that 7/27 “works best in that mode, as a soundtrack for the #squad era,” while Newsday agreed, praising the group for “channeling their ‘girl power’ into an artistic force.”

The emoji is generated with the use of any of the following hashtags: #727OutNow, #FifthHarmony727, #5H727, #5HNewAlbum, #727ReleaseDay, #The727Era and #727ListeningParty.
