Top 10 Fiercely Feminist Lyrics On Fifth Harmony's 'Reflection'

It's almost here! It feels like we've been waiting forever for the premiere American girl group Fifth Harmony to release their debut full-length, Reflection. They've toured with teen dreams Demi Lovato and Austin Mahone, playing tracks from the upcoming record and leaving us wanting more. Never fear, Harmonizers: The album officially drops on February 3 and is currently streaming on iTunes. We gave it a spin and realized 5H is bigger than ever, and they're reminding young ladies everywhere just how wonderful they are.

Thematically, Reflection is all about girl power: Trusting your fellow ladies, learning to love yourself and what you want in life, becoming a confident young woman. For Fifth Harmony, empowerment is more than just sticking with your friends—it's about knowing your worth and stopping at nothing to reach your goals.
