As a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony, Ally Brooke faced some struggles that she is now opening up about.
In an interview on “This Is How I Made It” on Snapchat, Brooke, 25, said that she was not allowed to release her own feature. This was even more problematic because the other girls in the group were allowed.
“We were all doing features. Everybody was experimenting and kinda spreading their wings,” the “Low Key” singer explained. “I found this one song that I really liked. I was a fan of the song, and I loved working with the artist.”
She then adds that the label told her she “couldn’t release it” and that the person who had to approve it called her saying “You’re not doing it, you’re not releasing this feature. I’m not gonna let it happen.”
To make matters worse, the “tone” that was used was “very disheartening.”
Brooke continues on saying that “everybody at the time were allowed to do features.”
She calls the decision “not fair” for both the way they spoke to her and because of their “personal opinion.”
“I felt alone and just felt like ‘I don’t understand why this is happening to me,'” she added.
Camila Cabello was the first member of Fifth Harmony to leave in December 2016. In 2018, the group announced they would be going on an indefinite hiatus.
