Harmonizers, get ready! Fifth Harmony will bring their smash hit “Work From Home” featuring Ty Dolla $ign to the stage for their first ever Billboard Music Awards performance on Sunday, May 22 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT on ABC.
Fifth Harmony join previously announced musical performers Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, DNCE, The Go-Go’s, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, P!nk, Britney Spears and collaborations with Nick Jonas and Tove Lo.
Continuing its rapid climb up the charts, Fifth Harmony’s latest single, “Work from Home” feat. Ty Dolla $ign, is already breaking records ahead of the group’s upcoming sophomore album 7/27 set for release on May 27 from Syco Music/Epic Records. The track has earned Fifth Harmony their first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and is the first song to reach the top 10 from a girl group since 2008.
During its explosive debut week, “Work from Home” became the group’s highest debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, while also securing a spot as the number one most added record at radio and the fifth most downloaded song of the week. Fifth Harmony’s record-breaking success on the charts adds to an already award-winning 2016, with the group’s first-time wins at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and People’s Choice Awards, their second win at this year’s Kids Choice Awards, and two wins at the Radio Disney Music Awards.
In 2015, Fifth Harmony released their debut album, Reflection, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and has since been certified Gold. Reflection includes two platinum records, “BO$$” and “Sledgehammer” in addition to the quadruple-platinum success of the single, “Worth It.” The latter track, featuring Kid Ink, soared up the Billboard Hot 100 chart, catapulted to No. 4 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, and was certified 3 times platinum, making it the group’s highest-certified single to date.
Born Tyrone Griffin Jr., Ty Dolla $ign has been an in-demand writer, producer, and featured artist since helming YG’s 2010 smash, “Toot It and Boot It (feat. Ty Dolla $ign).” Since then, his credits include Chris Brown’s No. 1 hit, “Loyal,” Kanye West’s “Real Friends” and “Faded,” Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home,” Rihanna’s “FourFiveSeconds (with Kanye West & Paul McCartney)” as well as work with Big Sean “Play No Games (feat. Chris Brown & Ty Dolla $ign),” Trey Songz (“Fumble”), B.o.B (“HeadBand (feat. 2 Chainz)”), and Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg, whose “Young, Wild & Free (feat. Bruno Mars)” proved a GRAMMY® Award-nominated blockbuster.
