According to Billboard, Lauren is about to sign a solo record deal with Columbia Records, allowing her to release her own music.
"12:37 a.m. Overheard at Sony’s party at the Whitney: Lauren Jauregui of 5H moving to Columbia from Epic to release solo album," the site quotes.
Epic, (which Fifth Harmony are signed to), and Columbia are under Sony Music, but they hold very different labels.
This could mean that Fifth Harmony may go on a break/hiatus so the girls can focus on solo careers.
"We’re at such an amazing place harmoniously with each other with communication and support for one another," Lauren told ET Online recently, regarding whether or not the group will be breaking up. "We’ve grown so much over the past year even, and I love genuinely being able to explore myself and know that my girls are there for me."
When asked about a potential solo career, she explained that, "That’s the dream, of course, to be able to express self and to create. That’s all I’ve ever wanted. Right now I’m super focused on the group, but I’ve been writing and always will write. That’s what I do."
Big things should be expected from Lauren, and we're beyond excited for her!
