10 Singers Who Released Solo Music While Still in a Girl Group
You want to talk about the ultimate betrayal? Okay, then let’s talk about musical groups whose members release solo music on the sly. It’s (probably) never done as a direct slight to their band members. But, let’s be honest, it qualifies as a break in the solidarity that musical groups have heralded since the beginning of time. That’s how fans felt after Camila Cabello‘s “Cinderella” leaked; yet another tune she recorded sans Fifth Harmony. (Remember, she also sang “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with Shawn Mendes.)
You know what type of group specifically has developed a reputation for releasing surprise solo music while STILL performing with others? Girl groups. We don’t know why! And it isn’t like we weren’t all super hype when these solo songs dropped unexpectedly. It’s just that the girl groups that included these 10 musicians probably felt just the sliiightest bit left behind, don’t you think?
Camila's duet with Shawn Mendes shocked Fifth Harmony fans everywhere, because the last thing that we'd want is a split! But, for now, it looks like we're safe in 5H heaven, with Camila's song, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" being simply a side project with Shawn and not her new main project. What's going on with "Cinderella" has yet to be announced...
