After months of rumors, Camila Cabello has officially called it quits with Fifth Harmony.
“After 4 and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representatives that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony,” remaining members Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei Hamilton, Dinah Jane Hansen and Lauren Jauregui announced in a statement on Monday (Dec. 19). “We wish her well.”
As a quintet, 5H surpassed their X Factor debut to score their first top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Worth It” off their first album Reflection. Since then, the group’s second album 7/27 set the precedent for a triumphant 2016 with hits like “All In My Head (Flex)” featuring Fetty Wap and the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted single “Work From Home,” through which the group beat out the likes of Drake and Rihanna for Best Collaboration at the American Music Awards last month.
AHHHHHHHHHH!!! Collaboration of the year at the #AMAs • Thanks to everyone who voted & thanks to @tydollasign, always 💛

Before news of Cabello’s departure, the ladies also celebrated topping YouTube’s most popular videos of the year.
With plans to release their third album in 2017, the group plans to keep soaring as a foursome for their fans while pursuing solo endeavors. “Harmonizers, we are in this together,” they continued. “We love you with all of our hearts.”
