Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Ally Brooke and Lauren Jauregui haven't skipped a beat since Cabello left the group in December.
The band stuns on the cover of Galore
magazine, where they open up about boys, their new album and how they couldn't be more "in sync."
"The four of us are really in sync with each other. We’re pretty open about most things. We try to respect each other as much as we can," Brooke says. "For us, communication is really important."
"We compliment each other a lot," Kordei adds.
"It’s so important. I feel like especially being around other girls, it’s really easy to start picking yourself apart and being like, 'Wow, she looks better than me,'" Jauregui shares. "Giving each other that energy changes the whole vibe of whatever we’re doing. If it’s a carpet or a shoot, you can feel in the pictures that we were all complimenting each other and we all felt good."
Dealing with boys isn't always so easy.
"They’re either super not the right guy, or dope as f**k. There’s no in between," Jauregui reveals. "They’re either trying to get something out of you, or they think you’re super dope."
"There was this one guy who thought I was very intimidating because of who we are," Jane recalls."My thing is, when I come across somebody, when I think they’re super cute or handsome, I can’t play along with that because sometimes they take it as something like, 'She wants me.' And it’s happened to me many times. When you’re trying to be kind to somebody and they take it as, 'Dang, Dinah Jane likes me.' And I’m like, 'No, I just want to be your friend… like, why do you have to take it like that?'"
"For me, it’s kind of the opposite," Kordei confesses, "'cause I feel like, in a way, I can be so intimidating with me not even knowing it, and then the guy doesn’t call you and you’re like, 'I’m cute! Come to me. Come here.' And then it’s like, 'Is there something wrong with me?'"
"It’s hard," Jane agrees. "So all we want is a confident dude to come straight up…maybe. Just walk up and say, 'Hey, what’s up?' and start from there."
Fifth Harmony also teases their upcoming new music as a foursome -- "[Our next album] will have some R&B tones," Jane reveals -- but Jauregui declares that she thinks the group has already left a "low key" legacy.
"I think we low key have [already left a legacy]," she says. "We’ve made an impressionable mark as far as girl groups go in the industry. I’m proud of us."
Meanwhile, Cabello gave her first solo magazine interview
in February, when she revealed that she was excited to "be brave and open my soul" with her new music.
