Normani Kordei has officially announced that she signed a solo deal with S10 management and we can't help but wonder if this is the beginning of the end for Fifth Harmony. With just four girls left, Normani, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui, promised to keep on going. But, with Normani's new deal set in place, will they be able to keep that promise?
S10 Entertainment and Media is run by Brandon Silverstein. He said in a statement to Billboard magazine, "Normani is an incredibly special artist and I am excited to work with her." He also took to his personal Twitter account to express how happy he was that the Fifth Harmony superstar had signed on with his company. He wrote, "Couldn't be more excited to welcome @normanikordei to @s10ent. Ready to see you shine. Incredible music on the way. Stay tuned ...
Normani has yet to make an announcement about it on Instagram. However, she did add her own statement to Billboard. She said, "I found a great partner in Brandon and S10. We are going to make magic together." To make things clear, there has been absolutely no talk of the group splitting up ever since Normani decided to sign a solo deal. However, it's hard not to speculate. Normani is going have her plate full when it comes time to record her own music. There's no telling how many solo songs she plans on creating but if there's an album in the future, that's going to be pretty hard to juggle with Fifth Harmony on the side.
Before Camila left the band for good, she was recording her own music too. She collaborated with Machine Gun Kelly and Shawn Mendes. But, she never signed with a different management team. Ally went off on her own and lent her vocals to a track with Lost Kings and A$AP Ferg over the summer. Lauren also did her own thing with Halsey. Yet, a solo deal was never part of the project for anyone else but Normani.
While we hope that this only means more work for Normani and not the end of Fifth Harmony, there's really no telling what is going to happen to the girl group in the near future. Their first album as a foursome wasn't quite as successful as the others they dropped with Camila. Could this mean that they are ready to call it quits and go off on their own? Not sure. Again, the girls have yet to provide any evidence that there is trouble in paradise, however, Normani's solo contract could be a red flag.
