Fifth Harmony have recently joined UK girl groups All Saints & the Spice Girls in a short elite list due to their recently certified double platinum single, ‘Work From Home’.
The groups newly crowned double platinum status comes from hitting the 1.2 million mark in the U.K. Not many girl groups have been able to amass this kind of achievement. In fact, it’s been 20 years since a girl group has had a double platinum hit, according to the BPI. The last girl group single to achieve this was the All Saints in 1997 with ‘Never Ever’. The Spice Girls also had a double platinum hit with ‘Wannabe’.
A few weeks ago, the group also claimed a new title and girl group record for having the highest ceritified single in the United States for going 5x platinum (denoting shipments of more than 5 million), according to the RIAA.
The girl group also recently released their self-entitled album, garnering favorable reviews from critics. Positive points included more co-writing opportunities, and according to outlets like Rolling Stone, BuzzFeed, etc, “their most cohesive album yet/thorough, decisive pop”.
Highlight tracks include the political pending “Bridges” & ska-reggae fusion inspired “He Like That”. The latter has so far reached the top 40 in countries like Canada, Singapore and New Zealand. It’s also received a boost in the last 24 hours due to the release of the songs respective music video.
Fifth Harmony is now available for purchase worldwide.
