It’s been six months since Camila Cabello decided to leave Fifth Harmony after four-and-a-half years together as a girl group. Immediately after the departure, questions were raised by fans: Will they get a new member? Will they change their name? Well, 5H say they’re sticking with the name and revealed who they consider their newest fifth member.

“It was obviously a thought, because it was a prevalent thing that there’s four of us, not five. Regardless, we were all very united in the fact that we didn’t want to change the name,” said band mate Lauren Jauregui to MTV News. “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.”

It doesn’t seem like they’ll be adding a new member as they already filled the spot in a special way. “The fans named us Fifth Harmony,” Dinah Jane Hansen said. “And now they’re the fifth member.” Aw!

Fifth Harmony released their first single as a foursome earlier this month titled “Down,” featuring Gucci Mane. When Cabello was asked if she listened to the song, she admitted to catching some of it and sent positive vibes to her former group. “I’ve heard some snippets of it. I haven’t had a chance to hear the whole thing, but I thought it was pretty cool,” she told AMP Radio. “I wish the best for them and I’m sure they’re going to kill it and I’m super happy making my own music.”

Cabello is set to release her solo album The Hurting, The Healing, The Love this fall.
