Camila Cabello shocked the world when she left Fifth Harmony last December, but it was the remaining four girls who were pretty concerned about their future. Would their music sound the same without Camila’s killer vocals? And more importantly, what would their fans think?

The group sat down with Billboard and talked about what it was really like after Camila left. Lauren Jauregui said it was difficult at first, but the ladies eventually moved on.

“We’d put blood, sweat and tears — and birthdays and funerals we missed — into this thing,” she revealed. “It’s our livelihoods and our families.’ This is the train, and now you’re like, ‘Is the conductor going to come through with the coals, or are we left here to die?’”

It’s hard to believe that Camila left the group almost seven months ago, but these ladies are stronger then ever. Their new single, “Down,” is flying up the charts and they’re *almost* finished with their third album!
