Lauren Jauregui, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, and Ally Brooke will remain as Fifth Harmony even after Camila Cabello's sudden departure to write her own music in December. Her exit from the Miami-based band has left the fans wondering whether the remaining members will change their brand or will let it as it is. Several months have passed but the foursome is still promoting under the same name.

"It's our brand"

In a recent interview with MTV News, the Fifth Harmony members (minus Camila Cabello) finally revealed their reason for keeping the band name despite the fact that they are now a four-member group.

Lauren Jauregui said it was a mutual decision among the four of them to retain the name they have established five years ago.

"Fifth Harmony is the name we grew up with and we worked for and it’s our brand. It’s who we are. It’s our entire moments. It’s what we spent five years on," she explained.

According to Hollywood Life, the girls were supposed to name their group LYLAS (Love You Like A Sister) during their "X-Factor" days.

Their next option was 1432 (I Love You, Too), which did not please Simon Cowell, who decided to let the viewers decide for a band name. That's when Fifth Harmony was created.

When asked if they are planning to hire a new member to fill in Camila Cabello's vacated spot, Dinah Jane insisted that the fans are their fifth member. The Fifth Harmony members have previously said that they are not looking for a replacement and would like to prove that they can do it even without their former co-member.

5H and Camila: What went wrong?

Earlier reports on Camila Cabello's exit claimed the four other members only heard about their co-member's departure from her representatives. The "Bad Things" singer, however, clarified that she has talked about her decision with her co-members on several occasions.

The 20-year-old soloist even said that she tried to talk to them after she left, but was allegedly given the cold shoulder.

The former Fifth Harmony member refused to spill the details of what happened, stating that it will only make her sad.

Camila Cabello said she was not expecting that her co-members would react that way, adding that she was hoping for a smooth exit and to keep her close relationship with them. Despite what happened, the solo artist said she's got nothing but love for Fifth Harmony. Right now, "Know No Better" artist is gearing up for the release of her first solo album in September.
