I feel bad for ally though she doesn’t really stand out like the others and ‘ot5’s’ barely support her. Maybe if she sings soulful songs and not stick to pop she’ll be more appreciated and be her own person u know? I just want them all to be able to continue doing what they love and be appreciated man they deserve it they’ve all been through so much
I think it’s just the sad reality of the entertainment business in general, one has more luck/push/means, while the others don’t. Especially in girl groups (even boy bands), not everybody will shine (sometimes it’s because of unfair treatment from labels, sometimes it’s simply a lack of a certain mass appeal).
The thing is, unlike previous GGs from other generations, each member of 5H has the potential to make it as a solo act. They all have it - the talent, the charm, the personality. They’re not just fillers. Some members just get overshadowed because other members have a bigger presence, but I can see that the potential is there.
I know what you’re saying about Ally, she’s usually the one who is unnoticed, even though her contribution to the group (vocally speaking) is solid.
But I also think that it’s just a matter of tapping into the right niche for her. It’s all trial and error, and I love what they’re doing now. They’re all doing solo stuff and they’re finding their own sound. Of course there’s bound to be failed attempts at first, but I’m sure that if they continue what they’re doing, they’ll eventually find what they all are comfortable in doing. This year (and probably the next) is like them developing their own artistry, which is needed for a healthy growth. It’s organic, the way they’re all taking their time honing their skills and meeting new people.
Ally has been vocal in her desire to try acting or comedy, so maybe that’s where she’ll shine eventually.
The thing is, happiness and a sense of fulfillment differs for every individual. Like Camila may walk the path of a pop sensation, charts and all, and Lauren may choose a more indie or laidback sound, Mani may be RnB, Dinah tbh could do anything with that awesome voice of hers, and Ally is versatile as well because she has comedic timing and she has range. My point is, the others may not chart, but it doesn’t mean that they’re failing. It’s just a matter of finding the right place for their individual expression.
The important thing is, they are enjoying what they are doing.
