Lauren Jauregui has never been shy when it comes to sharing her opinion and addressing certain political situations. In fact, the “Down” singer made sure that her views, along with the thoughts of her FIfth Harmony group members, were expressed on their upcoming album.

During an interview with Complex, Jauregui revealed the inspiration behind the song “Bridges” which will be featured on 5H’s third studio album. The 21-year-old said that she could not stay silent amid the many issues that came to her attention including the attack on women’s rights, race relations and more. The star admitted that she needed to express herself, however, it wasn’t an easy task.

“About a year and a half ago, when all of this started happening, I had to shut down my creative side because we weren’t really allowed to create. I was kind of in this cycle of just ‘do.’ I started to wake up and be like ‘there’s so much more to life,’” she explained.

The “Angel” singer insisted that although it took some time, the ladies were able to find a better understanding of who they are. “I really broke out of that box and was like. ‘I’m gonna do me, I’m gonna be me and will keep doing that.’ The creative flow just kind of comes when you do that and on this album, all four of us were able to. We all went through a transformative moment where we got connected with ourselves and really woke up,” Jauregui revealed.

“We were like, ‘Okay, we need to be happy. We need to sing.’ We have a song called ‘Bridges’ on the album that alludes to everything going on right now and how we feel about it. It’s a really powerful message of positivity.”

This is not the first time Jauregui has been open about her views on politics. In November 2016, the “Strangers” singer penned an open letter to the voters of Donald Trump and came out as bisexual.

“Your words are worthless, because your actions have led to the single-handed destruction of all the progress we’ve made socially as a nation. You have, with your pure ignorance and refusal to understand the way the government and the world works, allowed a power-hungry business tycoon to take over the United States of America,” she wrote, slamming Trump’s supporters.

In the midst of letter, the singer also revealed something about herself. “I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it. I am proud to be part of a community that only projects love and education and the support of one another,” Jauregui added.

Jauregui told Complex that both she and her group members, Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke Hernandez and Dinah Jane Hansen, use their voices and influence on social media to deliver impactful messages to their fans.

“I feel like all four of us are really powerful in our messages, what we speak about and what we are about. We're all really passionate and we voice it in our own way and we all come from a loving place and see from the same perspective which is why I feel so blessed to be part of this group.”

Fifth Harmony’s self-titled, third studio album will be released Friday.
