Fifth Harmony has officially entered their post-Camila Cabello era, and to celebrate, the group debuted “Down,” their brand new single featuring Gucci Mane.
The girl group born in ‘The X Factor’ announced on May 30 that they would release their new single, which features rapper Gucci Mane, on Friday, June 2nd. As promised, the group unveiled their new song during ‘Good Morning America’s summer concert series and even invited Gucci Mane to come over.
The group – formed by Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui – kicked off the performance with their chart-topping hit “Work From Home.” Ty Dolla $ign joined them on the Central Park stage to assist on his part. Then, they performed their new single for the first time ever, of course, with their collaborator Gucci Mane, who popped up the stage, emerging from a cloud of fog, just in time to hit his part.

In the middle of the rapper’s performance, Kordei tripped and fell to the stage, but she handled the situation with class, joking on Twitter after the performance.

They brought the quick show to an end singing their classic hit “Worth It.”
The group talked about their new beginning as a four-piece
After some online drama, Camila Cabello left the group in December. While the singer pursued her solo career, the group moved on and are now performing as a four-piece.
“It’s been really incredible because we’ve been in the studio the past few months really working hard on our album,” Brooke told ‘GMA’ hosts Michael Strahan and Lara Spencer in between songs. “We’ve been creating, we’ve been writing. It’s been really amazing, we’ve been having so much fun.”
Jane revealed that they have worked with Skrillex and Poo Bear on the new album, to which she referred as “everything to us.”
Brooke had previously shared that the new 5H album will be embracing some genres they have been wanting to experiment with for a while, like R&B and some other rhythmic tones. The group is really looking forward to mixing all the genres each one enjoys. “So to vibe together and create this Fifth Harmony sound is what makes it so special,” Brooke said.
