In the early weeks of 2015, the five-woman pop group Fifth Harmony released Reflection, their extremely promising debut LP. I was smitten,
calling it the first great pop album of the year and praising its modern update on the late-’90s pop-R&B of my adolescence. Massive tracks including “BO$$,” “Everlasting Love,” and “Sledgehammer” rendered Fifth Harmony torchbearers for the likes of Destiny’s Child, Mariah Carey, and the Spice Girls. Listening back a year later, those songs sound better than ever. And although the album’s breakout hit “Worth It” leaned on a whopping three dying trends (sassy sax loops, Mustardwave synths, and Kid Ink guest verses), it was still the kind of song that inspires involuntary body movement.
