Ally Brooke Speaks Out on Fifth Harmony’s ‘Indefinite Hiatus’

Ally Brooke is stepping out of Fifth Harmony’s shadow.

On Tuesday’s live episode of “The Real,” the singer discussed her new song “No Good” and her successful stint on “Dancing with the Stars,” where she finished in third place.

During her sit-down with Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Houghton, Jeannie Mai, and Loni Love, the 26-year-old also opened up about her former girl group’s “indefinite hiatus.”

“We just took this time to kind of go on our own solo journeys, and pursue our solo careers. It has been the most incredible experience. We are so happy. I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I kind of started off as a solo artist, way before ‘X-Factor.’”

Back in 2012, the group — including Camila Cabello, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, and Normani — formed during the second season of “The X-Factor” after each member auditioned as a solo artist.

“Now, the time came last year to go on our own, and this year has been unreal,” Brooke continued. “I literally pinch myself.”

Back in March 2018, the “Work from Home” musicians announced their hiatus in an emotional Twitter post.

“Reflecting on the past six years since we started on ‘X-Factor,’ we’ve realized just how far we’ve come and we appreciate everything so much, more now than ever,” the statement read. “We’ve really had one hell of a memorable journey together and can’t begin to express our gratitude to y’all for coming along with us on this wild ride!”

It continued, “After six years going hard, non-stop, we also 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.”

Cabello previously departed the pop act at the end of 2016.
