Camila Cabello, Normani, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui have all done it. At long last, we finally have the last member of Fifth Harmony releasing their official debut solo single. And honestly, it’s not bad. Ally Brooke was never my favorite Fifth Harmony member so maybe the bar was set low, but I don’t hate it.
Like Cabello, the 25-year-old San Antonio native decided to embrace her Latina roots. “Low Key,” featuring Tyga, has a throwback pop sound with some Latin and Eastern European influences. Keeping it real, I definitely get some “Havana” vibes from it. Also, is it me or does the chorus sound like “Loki” more than “low key?” 😉
“People never really got to see to the true me” says Ally. “Now just being able to have my own freedom of being an artist is the most incredible feeling in the world.” She adds, “I’m just someone who loves music and performing and loves the character that a record can bring”
Since 5H, Brooke has dabbled with a series of acclaimed collaborations, including “Vámonos” with Kris Kross Amsterdam & Messiah, “Perfect” with Topic, “Look At Us Now” with Lost Kings & ASAP Ferg and “The Truth Is In There,” her Diane Warren-penned track for WW International’s (formerly Weight Watchers) “Wellness that Works” campaign. Most recently, Ally also received a nomination for Best Solo Breakout at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Check out the Mike Ho-directed dance-heavy visual below. It features Ricky Alvarez, famously mentioned on Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next,” as her love interest.
