It's been a wildly successful year for Fifth Harmony, and on Friday, ET exclusively announced the band's upcoming 7/27 tour.

Earlier this month, Billboard featured the group in its May 2016 magazine with the headline "Destiny's Children" splashed across the cover.

The girls excitedly gushed about the Destiny's Child comparisons to ET at 102.7 KIIS FM's Wango Tango concert on Saturday.

"It's absolutely insane 'cause they're such a huge inspiration to us and our careers and they're so talented and so incredible," said Lauren Jauregui, "So to even be remotely compared to them is just amazing… they really have inspired us a lot."

The ladies also had a sense of humor about a Photoshopped image of them inside the mag that awkwardly made it look as if Ally Brooke has two right feet.

"Her foot looked so good they had to use it twice," joked Camila Cabello.

Lauren called the incident a "fluke," noting that overall they haven't ever been majorly retouched.

"Thankfully though on most covers that we've done, they haven't altered our bodies. We're all very differently shaped and we're all very different ethnicities as you can tell, so it's really amazing that we get to grace covers and can embrace women and be ourselves on there. We had pretty good luck with that so far."

Fifth Harmony's latest single, "Work From Home," is breaking records. According to Billboard, the catchy tune breaks a 15-year drought for girl groups at the top of an airplay list. It's also the first girl group song to break into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 in eight years.

The band's sophomore album, 7/27, is set to drop on May 27- and the ladies can't wait for fans to hear the star-studded collabs that'll be featured on the record, including Missy Elliott.

"We grew up listening to her, watching her music videos and everything she did," Normani Kordei shared. "So it's really awesome to really have her. It's an honor."

"We're really excited about our song with Fetty Wap," added Dinah Jane. "It's definitely such an honor to have all these people collab with us. We have Ty Dolla $ign, Fetty Wap, Missy Elliott… and the fact that these people are even willing to be on a track with us is such an honor and we're just trying to work really hard and make this album to its best."
