Lauren Jauregui might not know the exact kind of music she wants to make in her post-Fifth Harmony career, but she has an idea and the budding solo star revealed some of that mindset in her new feature with Playboy, which was released on Monday (March 26).
In the just-released interview with the outlet, the 21-year-old singer admitted that she's just exploring herself right now to get in touch with her own muse. "To be real, I don't want to give myself boundaries," she said, citing electronica, pop, rock ‘n roll, alt-rock and Cuban music as influential genres of music. "It's definitely different than my work with Fifth Harmony. It's me." Elsewhere in the feature, Jauregui spoke about how else she wants to expand her career, suggesting that her ideas go far and beyond just solo music. "It's so crazy how little people know about what they can do, about their rights, what they’re putting into their bodies and everything that's going on globally," she explained. "I believe that art is the core of what starts revolutions."
In 5H's statement, which was shared on their social media last Monday, the group reflected on the hard work they've put in during their six-year journey and made it a point to confess their interests for solo ventures. "Reflecting on the past six years since we started on X-Factor, we've realized just how far we've come and we appreciate everything so much, more now than ever. We've really had one hell of a memorable journey together and can't begin to express our gratitude to y'all for coming along with us on this wild ride!" their statement read. "After six years going hard, non-stop, we also realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors."
"To our Harmonizers, thank you for everything we have been able to build as Fifty Harmony. With your love and encouragement we will continue to build on ourselves, support one another in everything we do, and keep making you proud, each other proud and ourselves proud," the message concluded.
