Ally Brooke‘s new book “Finding Your Harmony: Dream Big, Have Faith, and Achieve More Than You Can Imagine” was released this week, and in it, she revealed that Fifth Harmony had the option of replacing Camila Cabello when she decided to exit the group back in 2016.
Ally explained in the text that the options were finding a fifth singer through a reality show search, or, replacing Camila with an already popular, well known artist.
“There were several different options and routes we could’ve taken. There were a lot of different ideas floating around,” Ally wrote (via PopCrave). “But the four of us decided, ‘Hey. We think it would be odd to all of a sudden bring someone.’ The four of us have a history, and we know what we went through together. We know our journey. We know each other. We felt like there was no question that we should continue on as we were.”
Ally then said that one singer who was offered as an option did pique her interest!
“I don’t know if I can share, but one would’ve been really cool,” Ally added. “She’s at the top now, and everybody loves her. I love her. That wasn’t what we felt like would be right for our group, even though we love this other singer, and she’s awesome. She probably wouldn’t have accepted anyways because she probably would’ve said the same thing, like, ‘I don’t know if I should step in here.’ And her career is already blowing up.”
If you missed it, Ally recently revealed some extremely personal news about her sex life.
