Angel is a song recorded by American group Fifth Harmony for Fifth Harmony. The members co-wrote the song with its producers Skrillex and Poo Bear. It was released as a promotional single on August 10, 2017.

BackgroundEdit

Angel incorporates a trap-inflected sound with Mike Wass from Idolator writing that it finds the group veering "deep into hip hop territory." Its production is supported by heavy bassline, drum machine sound, "squiggly synths" and distorted vocal samples. Expressing "self-confidence", the song is about being in a relationship based on unrealistic expectations.

Critical ResponseEdit

"The instant grat track feels like a different direction for 5H with slowed down, hip-hop-influenced production featuring a heavy bass beneath the band’s harmonies -- a bit harder than their more recent releases. As they boldly croon, “Who said I was an angel?” it still carries their classic confidence on the chorus as they unite to sing, “When you look at me, what do you see? Open your eyes, I’m more brilliant than you’ll ever be.”", according to Sadie Bell of Billboard.

"The trap-tinged track is marked by a distorted vocal sample and rapid-fire, triplet-filled verses from Ally, Normani, Dinah, and Lauren.", according to Winston Cook-Wilson of SPIN.

Music VideoEdit

The music video for Fifth Harmony's promotional single of their third album Fifth Harmony, Angel was released on August 11, 2017 on VEVO.

LyricsEdit


Normani:
Who said I was an angel?
Who said I was an angel? (Lauren: Oh yeah)

We was just a moment, nothing serious
Never really paid it no mind
Dropped the back side, you're paying attention
Shakin' all that, ah
Should've never not kept your word
Woulda had a reason to keep mine
You was too inconsistent
Shakin' all that, ah

Lauren:
Should've never crossed that line with ya
Everything was cool, just drinkin' with ya
Way too young to be up in cuffs
Wasn't tryna spend my life on the phone with ya
Gotta keep it all one hundred with ya
The original me wouldn't fuck with ya
And I was beginning to fuck with ya

Dinah:
Who said I was an angel?
Who said I was an angel? (Lauren: Oh yeah)
When you look at me, what do you see?
Open your eyes, I'm more brilliant than you'll ever be
(With Lauren & Ally: Who said I was an angel?)

Ally:
Yeah, won't lie, say I don't lie
Yeah, I might've told a few lies, yeah
Won't lie, say I didn't try
But you're only worth a few tries, yeah
Track star, think you're running these streets
You ain't the only one running the streets
They're making ground like I only wear cleats, yeah

Dinah:
Should've never crossed that line with ya
Everything was cool, just drinkin' with ya
Way too young to be up in cuffs
Wasn't tryna spend my life on the phone with ya
Gotta keep it all one hundred with ya
The original me wouldn't fuck with ya
And I was beginning to fuck with ya

Dinah (Dinah ad-libs):
Who said I was an angel? (Normani: But you was wrong, oh yeah)
Who said I was an angel? (Normani: Oh, I'm no angel)
(Ally: When you look at me) When you look at me (Normani: Oh), what do you see? (What do you see)
Open your eyes, I'm more brilliant than you'll ever be
(With Lauren & Ally: Who said I was an angel?)
(Who said I was, an angel?)

Normani (Dinah ad-libs):
Who said I was an angel? (Lauren: Who said I was an angel? Didn’t know the real me, I’m far from an angel)
Who said I was an angel?
(Never took the time out, never had time to figure me out
When you look at me)
When you look at me (Ooh), what do you see? (What do you see?)
Open your eyes, I'm more brilliant than you'll ever be (Brilliant than you'll ever be yeah)
Who said I was an angel?
(Who said I was a, an angel? Oh)
