Fifth Harmony tore it up on “The Tonight Show” this past week, performing “Down” from their upcoming self-titled album. The song tells the story of how far they would go to prove their love to that special someone, which includes lying to the FBI during an interrogation: “There ain’t no kinda situation. Where I wouldn’t cross a line for you. FBI interrogation. I would get up there and lie for you.” Fact: perjury is always the first sign of true love.
Staying true to their name, the quartet were joined by a fifth member: Gucci Mane.
The Fifth Harmony alum, who won third place on “Dancing With the Stars,” just dropped a new track and we’re excited. Ally’s new song is relatable, catchy and upbeat. The singer’s first solo song is all about relationships that are no good for you and how hard they are to get out of. Who knows, maybe this track will propel Ally into to the top of the charts like former band-members Camila and Normani. Here’s everything we know.
‘No Good’ is a Disco-inspired song with all-too-relatable lyrics.
Ally Brooke’s new song ‘No Good’ is a disco-inspired track about a love that’s ‘no good’ for her, but she just can’t stay away. If you can’t relate to that story well then it must be nice to be you.
The song’s lyrics have us feeling seen; “You put me to hell, but I just can’t quit.”
With lyrics that tell the story of a hard-to-quit toxic relationship, the former Fifth Harmony member is preaching to the choir over here. In the first verse of the song Brooke sings “You put me through hell. But I can’t quit for heaven’s sake.” The pre-chorus has us feeling even more seen; “Make a promise that I’m leaving. But my heart only wants what it wants. In the madness what a feeling, I’m hung up should be hanging it up.”
The song was written by a team of celebs, which will no doubt help make it a success.
According to Billboard, the song was written by an all-star team of chart-topping artists including Justin Bieber, G-Eazy, Demi Lovato, and Kim Petra. The track also features a sample from the 1987 Kelly Charles classic “You’re No Good For Me.”
‘No Good’ is Ally’s very first solo song without any other featured artists.
Brooke’s new single is an exciting release for her fans. ‘No Good’ is her first completely solo venture. Her previous releases, ”Low Key,” “Lips Don’t Lie,” and “Higher” all featured other artists. “Low Key” featured Tyga, “Lips Don’t Lie” featured A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and “Higher” was a collaboration with Matoma.
Just hours after releasing her new song, Ally won third place on DWTS.
The bop of a track was released just hours before the season 28 finale of DWTS aired. After nearly being eliminated in last week’s episode, this week Brooke and Sasha Farber danced it out and were awarded the third place. The couple earned a perfect score of 30/30 for their Freestyle, despite failing to nail a lift at the beginning of their performance. The judges made no mention of the mistake and still gave them a perfect score.
Brooke took to Instagram to share how important the dance competition has been for her.
Amid all of her posts about “No Good” on her Instagram Story, the 26-year-old shared a bittersweet post about her dancing journey coming to an end. “Tonight was our last rehearsal,” she lamented. “So many emotions that I’m feeling. I cannot express how incredible this whole experience has been for me. This show will forever have a piece of my heart. And so will @sashafarber1. Thank you for being not only a wonderful partner, but a wonderful friend. You have brought the best out of me. And for that, I’ll never be able to say thank you enough. I love you Sash. Tomorrow is the finale. Our final dances together. Let’s go and shine.”
The former Fifth-Harmony singer teased the release of her new single on Instagram.
Just last week the 26-year-old singer took to Instagram to tease her fans by sharing the cover of her single on the social media platform. A few days later, Ally shared a snippet of the disco-tinged banger.
The song ends on a positive note, after dragging all of us who can relate it.
“You’re no good for me, I don’t need nobody,” the rising star belts on the chorus. “Don’t need no one, that’s no good for me.”—can I get an amen? It’s only been one day since the song’s release, but it already sounds like a breath of fresh air in comparison to the mid-tempo tracks dominating the music scene.
With any luck, radio stations will get behind “No Good” and propel the song to the top of the charts. After laying the groundwork, it’s time for Ally to land her very own “Havana” or “Motivation,” like former band members Camila Cabello and Normani, did.
Fans are hoping that the single means that a debut solo album might be on the way to drop this coming 2020.
Earlier in March, Fifth Harmony announced that they would be taking a break and venturing off into their solo projects. However, out of respect to their fans, the girl group promised that they would finish performing at all of the remaining shows they had included in their tour dates.
It was this past Friday on May 11th that the band took stage together for the last time (that is until they re-unite as a group again). Even though they made it clear that this was only a temporary break, the pictures and messages they shared on social media made it seem like it was a goodbye for good.
Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei took to Twitter to express her love and gratitude for the women of this group.
But despite these tears of sadness, people on the internet are showing their support for Fifth Harmony’s decision on taking a break.
I just realized that I went to yalls last show in Texas on Monday February 20th 2017. I love and support you guy's decision even tho it breaks my heart. Go pursue the dreams you auditioned for. I love you guys????
