After having spent about 6 years together, American girl band Fifth Harmony decided to go on an indefinite hiatus in May 2018 to allow its members to pursue their solo careers. Following this announcement, many people, particularly fans of the group, have wondered how much collective success they enjoyed together and what exactly was Fifth Harmony’s net worth. Read on to find out all there is to know about the group’s earnings and which of its members have enjoyed the most commercial success.
Fifth Harmony Net Worth
Ever since Fifth Harmony came on to the scene in 2012 following their formation and appearance in the second season of the American reality television music competition, The X Factor, where they finished third, the Miami-based girl group has risen from height to height, releasing RIAA – Recording Industry Association of America certified multiple platinum songs and platinum albums.
Their journey started after they put pen to paper on a joint record deal with Simon Cowell‘s Syco Records and L.A. Reid’s Epic Records when they released their debut EP titled Better Together on October 22, 2013. The EP sold 28,000 copies in its first week and peaked at the number six position on the Billboard 200 chart. It’s lead single, “Miss Movin’ On” went on to become the highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 from a contestant from The X Factor as it peaked at number 76.
By February 2015, the group released their debut studio album, Reflection, which debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200 with 80,000 units sold in its first week. The album produced hit singles like “Boss”, the Meghan Trainor-written “Sledgehammer”, and “Worth It” featuring rapper Kid Ink, the latter of which became the group’s most successful single at the time, peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Thanks to the sales of their music and tickets from the tours they had embarked on at the time, Fifth Harmony’s net worth was reported to be quite impressive, however, no figures were at the time made available. It further did not hurt that their second studio album, 7/27 released on May 27, 2016, debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 and sold about 74,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. The group supported the album with The 7/27 Tour which saw them go to South America, North America, and Europe.
In August 2017, after the departure of Camila Cabello from the group, Fifth Harmony released their self titled third studio album which debuted at number four on the Billboard 200. The album produced hit songs like “Down”, featuring rapper Gucci Mane, “He Like That”, “Por Favor” with Pitbull, and “Angel”. They supported the album by again going on an international tour which was said to have been quite successful.
By 2018 when the group announced that they were going to have individual careers, all of their hard work had culminated in Fifth Harmony’s net worth being estimated to be around $10 million.
Who is the Richest Member of the Group?
Of Fifth Harmony’s last four, Lauren Jauregui is the richest member of the group as she has the highest individual net worth, estimated to be in the region of $3.5 million. If not for her departure from the group, Cabello would have the richest member title thanks to her estimated net worth of $12 million which has come about as a result of her very successful individual career thanks to songs like “Crying in the Club”, “Havana”, and “Never Be the Same”.
Jauregui, who is a Cuban-American singer and songwriter, was able to attain this unofficial title thanks to all that she has been able to earn from being a part of the group as well as what she has been able to take home as a solo artist. Her first solo effort came in December 2016 when she collaborated with Marian Hill on their song “Back to Me”. Her next notable collaboration outside the group came on May 27 when she featured in Halsey’s same-sex song, “Strangers” from the album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017). That same year, she worked with then-boyfriend Ty Dolla Sign in the song “In Your Phone” from the album Beach House 3 (2017), as well as with Steve Aoki for the song “All Night” in which she was the primary songwriter and lead singer.
Other members of the group, Dinah Jane and Normani, are reported to both have an estimated net worth of $3 million, while Ally Brooke’s net worth of $2 million makes her the poorest member of the four-piece.
