“There were so many hot boys today,” is the first thing out of Camila Cabello’s mouth in the new behind-the-scenes look at Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home” vid — and she’s definitely not wrong.
The construction-themed video boasted a ton of cameos from buff dudes wielding various tools, and the girls were understandably flustered by all the testosterone on set. But there was “work, work, work, work, work” to do, and with the help of choreographer Sean Bankhead and Director X (who — fun fact — also helmed Rihanna and Drake’s “Work” clip), they got the job done.
The new making-of vid, released Friday, shows the girls dancing up a dust storm and gushing over how “cute,” “sweet,” and “talented” their co-star, Ty Dolla $ign, is. 5H also explain why “Work From Home” ushers in a “new era” for the group, and discuss the chilled-out vibe of the song.
“It’s a groovy urban song,” Lauren Jauregui says. “The chorus… is really catchy and easy to sing along to.”
“It’s kind of one of those songs that makes you just lay back,” Normani Kordei chimes in. “It’s not too in-your-face. It’s one that you can just vibe to. “
If the making-of vid isn’t enough to quench your “Work From Home” thirst, the girls also performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night, where they flawlessly recreated the video, bulldozer and all.
“Work From Home” is the first single from 5H’s upcoming sophomore album, 7/27, due May 20.
