Fifth Harmony 411: Who’s Handling the Girls During the Hiatus

Like any job change, leaving a group for a solo career is a process that requires a smart strategy and the right team. And when all four members of Fifth Harmony announced Monday morning that they’re essentially all going solo at the same time, they’ve provided a textbook example of how to do it right, at least so far. All four had firmed up their teams before the announcement — Ally Brooke had announced a new management deal just a week earlier — and all four already had released solo projects or guest appearances, particularly in the past few months. This is doubly impressive considering the group released an album in August and toured internationally behind it — although they held back from doing a major North American trek (perhaps in anticipation of the increased demand that One Direction saw on their pre-hiatus tour).

The group — Ally Brooke, Normani (who’s dropped her last name, Kordei), Dinah Jane Hansen and Lauren Jauregui – has been a quartet since the January 2016 departure of Camila Cabello, whose solo debut album and song, “Havana” both hit No. 1 on the charts (which maybe could have had some influence on the other Harmonists’ decision). And while three of the four will continue to be managed by Maverick’s Larry Rudolph (who also manages Britney Spears) among other similarities, no Harmonist has the same team.

With each girl striking out with the hopes for similar results, Variety takes a look at the teams each member is assembling as they embark on their separate journeys.
