Normani & Camila Cabello’s New Albums Have Us Taking a Closer Look at Life After Girl Groups

After growing up together in the music industry as two members of Fifth Harmony, both Normani and Camila Cabello released new albums last month: Normani’s debut album Dopamine and Cabello’s fourth project C,XOXO.


On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith are talking about life after girl groups and how each singer is carving out her own solo lane after finding success in a group. We’re taking a look at Little Mix too — who are all in the midst of mounting their solo music careers and impacting the Official U.K. Charts — as well as the previous examples of Pussycat Dolls, Destiny’s Child and Spice Girls. What does it take to catch lightning in a bottle, like Beyoncé has? Or like Diana Ross’ post-Supremes career?

Also on the show, we’ve got chart news on how Taylor Swift enters rare air, as her album The Tortured Poets Department spends a 10th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Plus, how six different women are in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 — and why that’s unique in recent times. Also, Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” climbs to a new peak of No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart; could it go all the way to No. 1?
