Say it ain’t so! One of our favorite girl groups of the 2010s — Fifth Harmony — is officially calling it quits to pursue solo careers.

Members Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui made the announcement on social media Monday morning (March 19), explaining why they made this decision and what’s to come from them in the future.

The announcement comes just one year after former member Camila Cabello made her exit from the band, and sources are saying that 5H saw the success Cabello has had with her career and would like to do the same for themselves.

Fifth Harmony was formed on season two of the US version of The X Factor in 2012 after judge Simon Cowell suggested Camila, Ally, Normani, Dinah, and Lauren come together to compete as a group since they did not make it into the live show rounds as solo acts. Since then, the band finished in third place and went on to win numerous Kids’ Choice Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, and broke music streaming records with songs like “Work From Home,” “Worth It,” “Down,” and “That’s My Girl.”

While we were super bummed to hear the news, one person that was REALLY upset about the breakup was pop star Sam Smith! The GRAMMY award-winning artist took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the breakup, tweeting “NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” moments after the announcement dropped.

We can’t wait to see what the next chapter has for the girls and will keep you updated on all their solo endeavors.
