*Fifth Harmony is determined to be one of the rare success stories to come out of Fox’s cancelled competition series “The X Factor.”
After finishing in third place on the show in 2012, the girl group released its debut EP, “Better Together,” which included the Hot 100 entry “Miss Movin’ On” and debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart last October.
On July 4, the group used Instagram to tease their latest single “Bo$$,” from their new album due later this year. It was followed by a full reveal Sunday via MTV.com.
“Bo$$” name-drops the likes of Michelle Obama (“Purse all heavy, gettin’ Oprah dollars”) and Kanye West (“You’re talking to a lady, I want a Kanye and not a Ray J”) while exploring a theme of female empowerment over horn-filled beats.
“The whole point of this song is for girls who are our age to turn it on and feel confident and empowered because at this age being insecure is such a normal, common thing,” Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello told MTV on the set of the music video for “Bo$$,” which premieres July 8.
“So I think when you turn that song on, feel sexy and feel good about yourself, so the whole point is about being yourself and liking it.”
Fifth Harmony will perform “Bo$$” for the first time during the “Toyota Concert Series on Today” on July 11.
Meanwhile, a date has not been set for the release of the group’s as-yet untitled debut album. The five-member group begins a lengthy North American tour with Austin Mahone later this month.
