Listen to Lauren Jauregui’s Latest Single “More Than That”

Lauren Jauregui More Than ThatEarlier today, Lauren Jauregui dropped her latest offering as a solo artist, “More Than That.” In an act of interesting timing, Lauren released the R&B-influenced single on the same day as her former Fifth Harmony bandmate Normani dropped her own R&B collab with UK singer Sam Smith. Lauren’s song, by comparison, is a little less retro, and a little more straightforward contemporary R&B.

Lauren’s song seems to have performed well on iTunes during its first day out, though not as well as Normani’s song. “More Than That” cracked the top 20 on the worldwide iTunes song chart peaking at No. 14, while Normani’s “Dancing with a Stranger” remained at the No.1 position throughout the day. Of course, Sam Smith’s name recognition and fanbase probably did a lot to help “Dancing with a Stranger” with its strong first day launch.

Lauren’s song, however, did pick up quite a few rave reviews from music critics. Rolling Stone called the song “intoxicating” and “assertive,” while MTV.com described “More Than That” as a “swaggering, hypnotic flex.”

Ally Brooke Shares Cover of Wham’s Holiday Classic, “Last Christmas”

Ally Brooke Last ChristmasAlly Brooke might have been the slowest former member of Fifth Harmony to make it out of the solo chute. But it looks like she is determined to follow in the footsteps of one-time bandmates Camila Cabello, Lauren Jauregui, Normani and Dinah Jane and notch her mark as an individual artist.

Ally took to Instagram to announce the release of her first Christmas song, a cover of Wham’s classic “Last Christmas.” Ally doesn’t take big risks with her version, but she does trade a little bit of the original’s vibe as an upbeat ballad for a little more of a dance track feeling.
