How she wrote a new chapter in 2018: Judging by the year she’s had, Ally may be the most versatile of the 5H ladies. The 25-year-old appeared as herself on an episode of Famous in Love in the spring, but we didn’t hear anything on the music front until August, when news broke that she had joined the roster at Atlantic Records. Her first release was the Latin-tinged banger “Vámonos,” a Spanish-language collaboration with Dutch production trio Kriss Kross Amsterdam and Dominican trap rapper Messiah, who joined Ally in performing the track at the ALMA Awards in November. Not long after, Ally got into the holiday spirit with a cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas” — which she performed at the famed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade — and then surprised fans by announcing that she was writing a tell-all memoir. Acting, singing, writing… Ally’s talents know no bounds.
What’s next for 2019: That memoir, entitled Finding Your Harmony, hits bookshelves on April 2, 2019. But aside from penning tales about her childhood and her 5H days, she’s also been writing plenty of new music. In September, she posted pics from an all-female writing camp she hosted, revealing that she’s been “creating amazing music” with female writers, producers, and engineers. “Been pouring out my soul,” she wrote. “I can’t wait for y’all to hear.”
