Background[edit | edit source]
After their journey on the American version of The X Factor, Fifth Harmony started to record their debut EP in February 2013. The girl-group said that some of the songs on the album are inspired by Whitney Houston and by other girl groups like Destiny's Child and the Spice Girls. On a interview with Idolator.com, Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke said "We've been able to co-write a lot of our songs, most of them actually, and it's just so awesome to be like in the same room with each other and also co-writing with other professional songwriters that have been writing for years." Lauren Jauregui said: "They take like our opinions and considerations and they like them and like we get to be so involved in the creating process because the album is going to reflect who we are." They described their EP as "fun and pop." Also in 2013, they released a Spanish version, along with a Spanish instrumental version, of Better Together. They are called "Juntos EP" and "Juntos: Acoustic EP."
