Throwback Thursday ‘Work From Home’ by Fifth Harmony feat. Ty Dolla Sign (2016)
Get it? Because this is the first week that Andy and I have both been working from home!
I went to the Wikipedia page for this song to get some stats and some funny guy or gal put this as a definition, "'Work from Home' is an activity of sitting at home; looking at memes, fact-checking news, calling out people on social media and writing long-ass paragraphs on someone's post you don't agree with."
They're not wrong.
But anyway, back to the song. "Work From Home" by Fifth Harmony was the lead single from their second studio album, 7/27. The title of the album is to honor the date the group was formed on the American version of The X Factor.
According to Wikipedia, "Work From Home", "...peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the group's highest-charting single in the United States, while reaching the top 10 in twenty-two other countries. The single also became the first top-five for an all-female group in almost a decade, following The Pussycat Dolls' song, "Buttons" which peaked at number three."
The music video was directed by Director X and features the girls working on a construction site. Pretty sure it is not OSHA approved. Personally, the music video kind of makes me laugh. I remember Tina Fey said in an interview once that there is nothing funnier than when a woman is trying too hard to be sexy. Case and point this music video.
"Work From Home" took home the American Music Award for Collaboration of the Year and the MTV Video Music Award for Best Collaboration.
On the Billboard Hot 100 for the whole year of 2016, "Work From Home" was #16.
