“After six years going hard, non stop, we also realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors. We are all very excited and grateful to be able to take this time to learn and grow creatively and really find out footing as individuals. In doing this we are allowing ourselves to gain new experiences, strengths and perspectives that we can bring back to our Fifth Harmony family.”

The band — Lauren Jauregui, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Ally Brooke — went on to thank their fans for all of their support and reassured them that more performances are on the way.

“We do have some upcoming shows through the end of the year which will still happen as planned, and we can’t wait!” they wrote.

Their hiatus comes more than a year after Camila Cabello quit the group for her own solo career. In January, the “Havana” singer told The Edit magazine that the band brought out a “healthy competition.” After her exit, the band went on to release their self-titled third studio album in August 2017.
