The pop group is front and center in the first-ever music video for DC Super Hero Girls, a universe centered on female DC superheroes and supervillains during their formative high school years, and only ET has the exclusive debut.
Fifth Harmony’s new single, the female power anthem “That’s My Girl,” is showcased in the music video, which features teenage versions of DC icons Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy and Katana.
“It’s about girl power and that’s exactly what the song is about,” Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui told ET recently. “Being there for your girl and helping her through the hard times and the things that we have to go through in life.”
“We’ve all been in that stage where we all need each other -- to be bigger, to be better and to work together,” the 20-year-old Miami native added. “That girl power is so special to be teaching young girls, and we’re honored to be a part of [it] because it’s something that I feel like [is] lacking [right now].”
“That’s My Girl” has served as the summer’s unofficial anthem for female empowerment. During the Rio Olympics in August, the uplifting song -- which includes a Destiny’s Child shout-out! -- was used as the soundtrack to a U.S. Women’s Gymnastics video.
For Jauregui, who grew up with DC Comics as a child, the positive message behind DC Super Hero Girls -- who aim to discover their own superhero potential -- struck a chord. After launching her career 16 on The X Factor in 2012, Jauregui reflected on the whirlwind four years since.
“I would say, ‘Be more present,’” Jauregui said when asked what advice she’d give to her younger self. “I feel like there’s a lot that happens and there’s a lot that’s happening and a lot that’s thrown at you so quickly and you have to make life decisions at a really young age with a lot of things that you don’t necessarily know.”
Jauregui and her Fifth Harmony groupmates -- Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei and Dinah Jane -- have handled their success like pros, and are set to wrap up their 7/27 World Tour in Europe at the end of October.
