As a soloist, Cabello had hit a previous No. 3 high on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart with “Bad Things,” with Machine Gun Kelly, in February.

As a member of Fifth Harmony, which she left nearly a year ago, she hit a No. 5 best with the group’s “Worth It,” featuring Kid Ink, in 2015.

Fifth Harmony Earns First No. 1 on Billboard Rhythmic Songs Chart

It’s a special accomplishment for Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke Hernandez and Lauren Jauregui

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members have earned their first No. 1 on a Billboard airplay chart as the all-girl group’s “Work From Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, moves up 2-1 on the Rhythmic Songs chart.

Fifth Harmony

The song breaks a 15-year drought for girl groups atop the list. Not since Destiny’s Child crowned the list in 2001 with “Survivor” has a girl group reached the chart’s top spot.

Fifth Harmony becomes the 12th female group overall to top the chart, which was launched on October 3, 1992.

“Work From Home” reaches the top in its 10th charting frame, rising 18 percent in spins in the week ending May 8, according to Nieslen Music. The act had previously charted on Rhythmic Songs with “Worth It,” featuring Kid Ink, peaking at No. 19 in August, 2015.

The climb bumps rapper Belly from a three-week topping run with “Might Not.”

Between 1992 and 2001, these all-female groups led the chart with 21 total songs. Here are the 12 acts that have topped Rhythmic Songs (by number of No. 1s, then alphabetical):

5, TLC
3, Destiny’s Child
2, En Vogue
2, Salt-N-Pepa
2, SWV
1, 702
1, Blaque
1, Fifth Harmony (NEW)
1, Jade
1, Mokenstef
1, Spice Girls
1, Xscape

On the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Fifth Harmony scores its first top 5 as “Work From Home” hops 7-5, besting their previous No. 6 peak. An 8 percent climb at radio, to 10.5 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music, aids in the climb while 15.9 million weekly U.S. streams, through the week ending May 5, also contribute to the ranking.

“Work From Home” becomes the first top five Hot 100 hit by a girl group since Dixie Chicks‘ country hit “Not Ready to Make Nice” (No. 4) in 2007; the latter act offered its approval upon learning the stat, tweeting a hearty, “Congrats ladies!”

“Work From Home” is the first Hot 100 top five by a pop girl group since the Pussycat Dolls‘ “Buttons,” featuring Snoop Dogg (No. 3), in 2006.

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.

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.

Fifth Harmony

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

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members have been added to the performance lineup for this year’s awards show.

No word on what song the all-girl group, named to this year’s Billboard 21 Under 21 list, will perform, but the ladies did release a Spanish version of their hit single “Worth It.” Entitled “(Worth It) Dame Esta Noche,” was released earlier this summer.

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.”

Fifth Harmony Heading into the Studio to Record New Album

Camila Cabello, Lauren Jauregui and Ally Brooke Hernandez are apparently making new music…

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

Fifth Harmony

“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.”

Gomez to Reportedly Join Taylor Swift on Stage in Upcoming 1989 Tour Stop

Selena Gomez is ready to take the stage with Taylor Swift

The 23-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress will reportedly serve as a special guest on her best friend’s 1989 tour, according to the U.K.’s Capital-FM station.

Selena Gomez

Capital posted a tweet on Sunday (August 16) after confirming that they were talking with Gomez:

“It’s official @selenagomez WILL be joining @taylorswift13 on stage as a guest!! She just announced it!! #excited @thisismax x,” read the tweet.

Reps for Swift and Gomez did not respond to a request from Billboard for comment, but the pairing makes sense: Gomez is featured in Swift’s tour videos that play in the stadiums during set breaks, and the former Disney star has a new single, “Good For You” featuring A$AP Rocky, that Swift has professed to adoring. Additionally, Gomez has a co-starring role in Swift’s “Bad Blood” video.

“Good For You” moves up to No. 11 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart after debuting at No. 9.

Following a two-night stint at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz. beginning on Monday (Aug. 17), Swift’s 1989 trek will touch down at the Staples Center in Los Angeles for five consecutive nights, beginning on Aug. 21.

Swift’s recent special guests included Fifth Harmony, for a rousing rendition of the all-girl group’s “Worth It.”
