Fifth Harmony Scores First Billboard Top 10 Hit With ‘Work From Home’
Your bonus checks are in, Harmonizers! When it comes to the music charts, it looks like your girls Fifth Harmony are finally "Worth It." The pop-R&B girl group and unofficial Wrestlemania divas have finally scored their first ever Billboard Top 10 hit with "Work From Home."
The summery pop track, which features rapper Ty Dolla $ign, serves as the lead single off the girls' forthcoming sophomore album 7/27, out May 20. Though it went triple platinum in the U.S. and was a bonafide radio hit, the group's previous major single, 2015's "Worth It" featuring Kid Ink, skirted the Billboard Top 10, ultimately peaking at No. 12.
Released on February 26, the "Work From Home" video features a tongue-in-cheek home improvement theme, with the ladies of Fifth Harmony strutting around a construction site wearing contractor gear as they try to encourage their men to clock out and finish their shifts at home in the bedroom.
In addition to promoting the song online, the group has also performed the track on national television, hitting up both Live! with Kelly and Michael and Jimmy Kimmel Live! For their Kimmel performance, the girls revisited the construction theme of the music video, reenacting select scenes and wearing their costumes from the Director X-helmed clip.
Aside from marking a personal achievement for the former X Factor contestants, the commercial success of "Work From Home" also signals an important moment for girl pop groups. The last single from a girl group to reach the Billboard Top 10 was "When I Grow Up" by the Pussycat Dolls, which reached No. 9 in 2008. For Fifth Harmony, hard work pays off after all.
