Fifth Harmony Debuts New Single Me & My Girls

The girls of Fifth Harmony may have only placed third on the second season of Fox’s singing competition The X Factor, but the girl’s first single “Miss Movin' On” recently nabbed over a million YouTube views, pushing the girls ever closer to tangible stardom. On Thursday, the girls headed to the stage of Today to banter a little about the group’s upcoming album and perform the second single off of the album, “Me & My Girls.”

The track is roughly as catchy as the group’s first single, although it does serve as a nice follow up. “Miss Movin' On” is a track about life after a bad romance and the girl power needed to pull yourself back together. “Me & My Girls” is more about spending time out on the town with your girlfriends, exuding confidence and dancing like nobody’s watching. The girls still need to work on putting together a more complicated dance routine, but overall, the group's second single projects exactly the image the girls have been hoping to stand for all along, at least sans the stupid bow Camila Cabello used to wear.

The Today performance is especially amusing, thanks to NBC still pushing Matt Lauer out of his comfort zone and forcing him to head to the outside stage to talk to the young women. It’s not as awkward as Lauer’s presence onstage a few months ago, when the Today crew had him do the “Gentlemen” dance with Psy, but it’s close. I really, really wish he could have tried the “dance like nobody’s watching” move at the 2:42 mark, but maybe that’s just me.

After placing third on The X Factor, the all girl group signed with Sony Music Entertainment and Epic Records to produce the group’s first studio album. So far, details on the full album are scarce, but Lauer does note the endeavor should be hitting outlets sometime this fall, which would make sense, considering the timeline of the singles. Personally, I was never a huge fan of Fifth Harmony on the show, but The X Factor needs to create a legitimate star to maintain relevancy and whether Fifth Harmony or Emblem 3 earn the distinction first, I’m sure Fox and Simon Cowell will be extremely happy.
