Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui Goes Solo for New Single
On Monday, the singer shared a preview of the song she made in collaboration with electro house musician Steve Aoki on social media. “So excited about this one,” she wrote on Twitter. Two days later, she posted a teaser clip featuring some of the song’s lyrics.
Aoki and Jauregui’s collaboration was announced last March. At the time, Aoki stayed quiet about the details of the song, telling Billboard: “It’s going to be something people won’t expect.”
Fans are fired up about Jauregui’s solo venture. One follower wrote: “I’m sitting here going off listening to this and it’s only 30 seconds long… can you imagine what I’m gonna be like when the songs out?” Another encouraged Jauregui to leave the band: “Lauren Jauregui should go solo. Her potential is misinterpret. #AllNightOutThisFriday.”
Jauregui isn’t the only 5Her to try her hand at a solo track. Last month, Dinah Jade dropped her collaboration with producer RedOne for the single “Boom Boom.” And Normani Kordei, who’s cooking up new music with rising star Khalid, announced in October that she signed a solo deal with S10 Entertainment & Media.
Members of the girl group may be finding inspiration to go it alone after witnessing Camila Cabello’s solo success since leaving the band late last year. The singer has steadily ascended the charts with her single “Havana,” which now sits at No. 2 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart.
