And the singer is ready to make a name for herself, aside from her success with the all-girl group: “Right now, I’m just exploring myself and getting in touch with myself creatively.

“To be real, I don’t want to give myself boundaries,” she continued. “It’s definitely different than my work with Fifth Harmony. It’s me.”

Jauregui is excited to work with “Strangers” collaborator (and tour mate) Halsey once again. The pair, both openly bisexual, were excited to bring something new to the table. “I love the concept of there being this visibility because most of the songs you hear about bisexual women or female attraction sexualizes the female connection,” she explained.

She added, “I believe that art is the core of what starts revolutions.”

Jauregui will join Halsey on the “Closer” singer’s Latin American leg of her “Hopeless Fountain Kingdom” tour.
