“Soo basically my first single ‘1:59’ will be coming out 4/26,” Kordei captioned a post on Instagram.

In the video Kordei shared, fans got a sneak peek of her new single, where she sings, “When I get you alone / Boy, what you gon’ do with it? / Don’t talk too much, just do that sh**.”

Kordei auditioned as a solo artist for The X-Factor USA back in 2012 but was eliminated. However, she was brought back into the competition as part of a pop group that would be known as Fifth Harmony. The quintet ended up in third place in Season 2 but would go on to record three albums.

After the girl band went on an indefinite hiatus in 2018, Kordei has released multiple singles over the years, starting with “Love Lies” with Khalid, which was featured in the soundtrack for the romantic comedy film Love, Simon. Kordei would go on and release other songs like “Waves,” “Dancing with a Stranger” with Sam Smith, “Motivation,” “Diamonds” with Megan Thee Stallion, “Wild Side” with Cardi B, “Fair” and “New to You” with Calvin Harris, Tinashe and Offset.

Throughout the years, fans have been wondering when Kordei was dropping a full-fledged album and after a long wait it’s finally happening in 2024.
