#QuickListenReview + Song and Video Premiere: Fifth Harmony – “Work From Home”

Fifth Harmony’s new song “Work From Home” is the ONLY “work” needed to be done so far this year.

 The Song:

Our little girls from X-Factor are grown-up working women now! The song  “Work From Home,” (from their upcoming sophomore album ‘7/27’) solidifies a place for Fifth Harmony in the current pop landscape as its favorite dessert dish. Just like “Worth it” being the group’s answer to Top 40’s previous infatuation with jazzy horns, much like  Jason Derulo‘s “Talk Dirty,” this song will sound (and taste) like a delicious dessert played after any of the many main-course hits Justin Bieber currently has in constant rotation on pop radio. They all sound great on the song, although it’s not really a vocal-driven song. The only criticism I’d have for it is that for the final chorus Lauren would have sounded a lot stronger and interesting on the adlibs for the finale (especially since she didn’t have a solo in the song) than the ever-present Camilla.

The Music Video:

Dinah Jane demands 16″

The girls’ music video sees the girls in their most sexually implicit roles ever. Filled with phallic symbols and imagery (pictured above: Dinah Jane holding out 16″ on a ruler to her male counterpart), this video takes place at a construction site for a home that Fifth Harmony is hard at work on. I’ve got to say, although I’ve always been apprehensive that they can sell this kind of image or a dance video, they really worked it out! They really shocked me with how sexy this video was. It is a great curve ball pitched though.

My reaction throughout Fifth Harmony’s new video

I guess performing their sassy dance song for a majority of last year has really paid off. They all look amazing and seem a little too comfortable in their new roles as suggestive women in pop. Watch their video below:

Overall, this song is my favorite single released this year. Fifth Harmony easily snatched the “work” crown swiftly from Rihanna‘s head and placed it upon theirs. Good job, girls.
