Last week it was announced that Emblem 3 got signed with Syco Music and Columbia Records and on January 17 it was announced that Fifth Harmony, who came in third on the second season of "The X-Factor," has been signed with Syco Music and Epic Records!
"OMG!! I'm so looking forward to working with the great Mr. LA Reid and of course my uncle Simon!! Rudolph (Simon calls me Rudolph) is ready to go," band member Ally Brooke said in the press release. "I am going to have a BLAST recording with my girls and working with L.A. and Simon. I promise we’re gonna bring it for our FLAWESOME Harmonizers!"
Camila Cabello added, "Being introduced to the Syco and Epic family means the world to us. We get to learn from and work with the best in the business, people who have built the careers of artists we look up to. The fact that we're being given the opportunity to make music that we want feels like a dream we never want to wake up from, and I literally just have to pinch myself."
Simon Cowell says he knew from the moment they performed at the judges home part of "The X-Factor" that he'd done the right thing by putting the girls together.
"I knew from the girls’ first performance at judges’ homes in Miami that we’d done the right thing," he said. "The chemistry between the Fifth Harmony girls both on and off stage is fantastic. They are really great girls, who have become best friends. They’re great fun to be around and most importantly, they are all incredibly talented."
Fifth Harmony's upcoming debut album will be A&R’d by Syco Music and executive produced by multi platinum selling producer/songwriter Julian Bunetta (One Direction, Boyz II Men, Flo Rida, Natasha Bedingfield, Leona Lewis), who first worked with the girl group as a music producer on "The X Factor." The album will also feature collaborations with songwriters Autumn Rowe (Cher Lloyd, Alexandra Burke, Leona Lewis) and Lil’ Eddie (Usher, Pink, Jessie J, Cody Simpson).
