Fifth Harmony released their first studio album “Reflections” on Feb. 3, 2015. The all- female pop group released their EP, “Better Together”, in 2013, following their third place finish on the “X-Factor” in 2012. They then spent the following year producing “Reflections,” even pushing back the release date to better complete the album, and it was well worth the wait.

 

One of the most popular songs on the new album, “BO$$” was released on July 7, 2014, and the upbeat single reached number 43 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the first week of its release. Fifth Harmony also released their second and third singles from the albums, “Sledgehammer” on Aug. 23, 2014, and “Worth It” featuring Kid Ink on Jan. 20, 2015.

 

I was not sure what to expect when I first listened to the album. I really enjoyed “BO$$” when it was released during the summer, it was always on repeat whenever I worked out. I also love the song “Sledgehammer”, which I first heard on iTunes radio in the fall.

 

I love the overall feel and messages of this album. Being an all-female group, I believe that Fifth Harmony has a strong influence over their audience because they are relatable.

 

“Reflections” is a confident, upbeat, and overall positive album which I really enjoyed listening to.

 

I think the songs “Worth It” and “Reflections” really show the overall message of the album, inspiring confidence and self worth, important characteristics that people should realize themselves without seeking a guy’s approval.

 

“Sledgehammer” has a slightly different message than most of the other songs, but its overall positive message with falling in love and feeling uplifted really contributes to how the group manages to make their mostly female audience feel.

 

I would recommend “Reflections” to anyone with a taste for fun and upbeat pop music that still has a message, give it a listen on iTunes or Spotify today.
