Christina Aguilera Releases New “Mulan” Single, “Loyal Brave True,” for the Film’s Soundtrack

Christina Aguilera is back with new Mulan music…

22 years after the release of “Reflection” from Disney‘s 1998 Mulan soundtrack, the 39-year-old half-Ecuadorian American Grammy-winning singer and former Disney star has returned to the franchise with “Loyal Brave True” — the new single for the upcoming live-action remake.

The song is filled with the undeniable warrior spirit people have come to love Mulan for, but also updates the lead character’s story for the 21st century.

“Should I ask myself in the water what a warrior would do? / Tell me underneath my armor, am I loyal, brave, and true?” Aguilera sings on the chorus. The star’s powerful vocals take full charge as the production fuses orchestral melodies with classic Chinese instruments like the guzheng.

“The film Mulanand the song ‘Reflection’ coincided with getting me my first record deal,” Aguilera explained in a press release. “It’s amazing to come back to such an incredible movie that’s full of power and meaning, and that meaning holds the test of time: staying true to yourself, being who you are, and teaching how to be fearless. My new song, ‘Loyal Brave True,’ represents the fine balance between vulnerability and strength.”

The singer also tweeted the original movie “has been such a special part of my life & this is a beautiful continuation of the legacy.”

Along with “Loyal Brave True,” Aguilera also revealed she recorded an updated 2020 version of “Reflection.” While the original song didn’t crack any major charts (it peaked at No. 19 on Billboard‘s US Adult Contemporary chart), it has become a fan favorite. Aguilera previously performed it at Disney‘s D23 Expo last fall, where she was honored as a Disney legend. Most people believe that a straight iron is only used when you want to rock smooth, straight, and sleek strands. However, this is not true and you can use a straight iron for curling your hair.

The Mulan soundtrack will be released on March 25, with the remake (starring Liu Yifeias the titular character) set to release on March 27.

Fifth Harmony Delays Release of “7/27” by a Week

Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke Hernandez and Lauren Jauregui are making you wait a week…

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members took to Twitter on Friday to announce that their forthcoming album 7/27 will now be released on May 27, one week later than originally planned.

“The number 27, as you guys have already probably figured out, is quite important to us. It means a lot of different things,” Jauregui says in the video. “And so to keep cohesive with the theme of 27, we have decided to push it one week to the 27th. One week will be nothing.”

Fifth Harmony released their debut album Reflection in 2015, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The all-girl group’s latest single, “Work From Home,” the first single from 7/27, is Fifth Harmony’s first song to reach the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Fifth Harmony Earns Its First Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 Single with “Work From Home”

Ally Brooke Hernandez, Camila Cabello and Lauren Jauregui have worked their way to a special milestone.

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony bandmates have achieved their first top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Work From Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

Fifth Harmony

The song, the debut single from the all-girl group’s upcoming album 7/27, moved up 12-10 on the chart dated April 16 

With the advance, the quintet passes its prior best rank, first set when “Worth It,” featuring Kid Ink, reached No. 12 last August.

The group’s new single jumps 6-4 on Digital Songs (89,000, up 34 percent); 8-5 on Streaming Songs (14.4 million, up 20 percent); and 22-17 on Radio Songs (49 million, up 22 percent). The track, already a No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140, previews 5H‘s upcoming album 7/27, a nod to the date (in 2012) that the act formed on Fox’s The X Factor. The set arrives May 20 and follows the group’s debut full-length, 2015’s Reflection.

“Work From Home” additionally flies the flag for girl groups, becoming the first Hot 100 top 10 by a girl group this decade. The last such hit? The Pussycat Dolls‘ “When I Grow Up,” which became the act’s fourth and final top 10, reaching No. 9 back in July-August 2008.

Fifth Harmony Signs with Maverick Management

Ally Brooke Hernandez, Camila Cabello and Lauren Jauregui are mavericks…

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members have signed with Maverick Management, according to Billboard.

Maverick hinted at the arrangement with a tweet, which featured a photo of the girl-group along with the caption, “Welcome to the Maverick family, @FifthHarmony!”

The all-girl group, which was named Group of the Year at Billboard’s Women in Music 2015 ceremony, is now onboard with a management enclave that counts Pharrell Williams, Madonna, Alicia Keys, U2, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus among its clients.

Fifth Harmony had previously been repped by Jared Paul at Faculty.

The pop-quintet’s debut full-length album, Reflection, opened at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. The 2015 set has yielded two top 40 hits, “Worth It” (No. 12) and “Sledgehammer” (No. 40).

Fifth Harmony Named to Billboard’s 21 Under 21 List

Camila Cabello, Lauren Jauregui and Ally Brooke Hernandez are the Latinas on top…

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members have been named to Billboard’s 21 Under 21 list, the music magazine’s annual look at the hottest artists in all genres who can’t yet legally purchase.

Fifth Harmony

The ladies of Fifth Harmony come in at No. 2, up three spots from last year’s ranking.

After heavy touring in 2014, Fifth Harmony finally released the all-girl group’s debut album, Reflection, in 2015. The wait was totally “Worth It,” to quote the title of the smash third single off the album, featuring rapper Kid Ink. The tune climbed to No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the album cracked the top five of the Billboard 200, proving once again that these former The X Factor contestants are a real-deal girl group.

In September, the quintet quickened the pulses of Harmonizers — the name given to its legions of superfans — by announcing that work had begun on album No. 2.

“You’ll have music to soothe your soul soon, everything will be fine, we love you to death and we’re not going anywhere. I promise,” Jauregui told Billboard, looking ahead to another big year.

But the girls of Fifth Harmony aren’t the only ones returning to the 21 Under 21 list.

Becky G comes in at No. 12, dropping three spots from last year’s list.

The 18-year-old Mexican American singer/rapper and soon-to-be Power RangersYellow Ranger was one of the first artists to sing out against Donald Trump.

When Trump made his now-infamous anti-immigrant remarks in June 2015 campaign speech, he was challenged by the singer, rapper, and actress born Rebecca Marie Gomez. Becky G released “We Are Mexico” in the wake of Trump’s comments to show she’s proud of her Latin heritage.

Born in Inglewood, Calif., to parents of Mexican descent, Becky G has incorporated Latin sounds throughout her career, and in 2014, she rose to fame with the singles “Can’t Get Enough” (a Latin Rhythm Airplay chart-topper featuring Pitbull) and “Shower.”

As she continues to prep her debut album — a hotly tipped set she’s prefaced with the 2015 singles “Lovin’ So Hard” and “Break a Sweat” — she’s also found success on TV, playing Valentina Galindo on the Fox series Empire.

Meanwhile, Luis Coronel makes his debut on the list…

The 19-year-old Mexican American singer who is already famous throughout the Latin music world is getting ready to go global.

Born in Tucson, Coronel is prepping album No. 3, the follow-up to last year’s mega-selling Quiero ser tu dueño. That album reached No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart, making Coronel the youngest solo artist in 13 years to rule that particular tally.

With his next LP, the former YouTube star is looking to continue expanding his sound and giving his millions of “Coronelas,” or diehard fans, genre-defying music that incorporates different rhythms.

“We’re adding more instruments and more up-tempo sounds so that people can feel good and dance,” Coronel told Billboard in August, when he debuted the single “Nada Más Por Eso.” “I know that the fans are going to love it, they’re really going to enjoy it.”

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members are heading back to the studio.

“We’re about to start recording our new album the day after tomorrow,” Cabello revealed to Billboard backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2015 over the weekend.

“We’ve heard some of the demos and we’re really, really excited about some of them,” Cabello said about their sophomore album, which will follow up their debut, Reflection.

“They’re really, really cool. I heard one the other day that I was like, that was probably my favorite song that we’re gonna record.”

The group will begin recording in Los Angeles.

Fifth Harmony is still making strides with Reflection’s third single, “Worth It,” featuring Kid Ink, which has peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Though the song’s bouncy appeal is clear, Cabello credits their Harmonizers with making it a success.

“I think it was really the fans that propelled that song,” said Cabello. “They requested it on the radio stations and they were so driven for us to have a successful song on the radio. We have a really, really passionate core group fanbase and I think they just worked that. They were just on it.”

Fifth Harmony Performs Hit Single “Worth It” with Taylor Swift

Fifth Harmony has a sixth member… at least for a night.

During the latest stop on her 1989 tour at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, Taylor Swift invited the all-girl group, comprised of Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui, Normani Hamilton and Dinah-Jane Hansen, on stage to perform their hit single “Worth It.”

“Scream louder for them than you’ve screamed for me the entire night,” Swift told the hyped-up crowd when introducing Fifth Harmony.

Swift also prefaced the high octane performance by informing the crowd that her shiny blue outfit had been loaned to her by a friend.

“[She’s] in one of the biggest and most successful groups in the world. They have one of the most powerful and loyal fanbases in the world,” said Swift. “They also have one of the biggest smash hit singles in the country right now called ‘Worth It.'”

The stadium went crazy. Swift fit right in with the Fifth Harmony girls, strutting her stuff throughout the performance.

“Worth It” is the group’s third single from their debut album, Reflection, and Fifth Harmony’s first single to sell more than a million downloads.

Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It” Becomes Group’s First Single to Sell 1 Million Downloads

Ally Brooke Hernandez, Camila Cabello and Lauren Jauregui have joined the One Million Club…

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony mates’ latest single, “Worth It,” is the group’s first single to sell more than 1 million downloads. Since its release in March, the single has sold 1.2 million digital copies to date, according to Nielsen Music.

Fifth Harmony

“Worth It,” Fifth Harmony’s third single from debut album Reflection, has continued to perform well on the Billboard Hot 100 after becoming the group’s first Top 20 hit earlier this year. The Kid Ink-assisted track stays at its No. 14 peak on the chart this week. And the girls tell Billboard they’re elated — and more than a little shocked — that the song has taken off.

“With ‘Worth It,’ we were really surprised,” 5H’s Normani Kordei tells Billboard. “We love the song, but we were kind of surprised, to be honest.”

“It’s normally the songs that you don’t really think that are the hits!” added Dinah Jane Hansen.

Fifth Harmony tracks like “BO$$” and “Sledgehammer” helped earn the group a loyal fan base, but “Worth It” is growing at radio, up 7 percent this week with 79 million in audience while staying at No. 10 on the Radio Songs chart.

“This is definitely our biggest single to date for sure, and so just to see it continue to climb and see it on the charts with Ed Sheeran or Taylor Swift, or whoever’s big right now, it’s right next to them and right there with them,” says Jauregui. “It’s frickin’ platinum! To say it’s platinum, that a million people bought that song, it’s amazing. It’s so incredible to see that the support has gone beyond our fan base.”
