"Angel" is a promotional single of from Fifth Harmony's self-titled studio album, 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. Angel is a trap-pop and hip hop song.

BackgroundEdit

“Angel” is the eighth track of Fifth Harmony’s self-titled album. The group released the audio of the song on August 10, 2017 as a promotional single, and the music video one day later.

The track finds them rhetorically questioning “Who said I was an angel?”, mocking an ex-lover who was “too inconsistent” while simultaneously proving that they are not to be messed with.

Dinah via Official Charts: Who said I was an angel? You’re not always going to be somebody sweet. There are times when you’re gonna step up for yourself and be confident.[1]
Dinah via Billboard: We were in the studio with Poo Bear and Skrillex, and Poo Bear was just like, "Just so you know, this song is a little hard." He played the record and at first I thought it was a ballad, and I was like, "Oh, he’s joking around," and I come to find out when that drop came in, I was like, "Yo, this is a game-changer right here."[2]
Ally: It goes so hard. It’s dark. I really turned on my alter ego for this one. I also think this is the dopest video we’ve ever done. It’s visually stunning and we look like we’re in our element with such fierce attitude that reflects in the song. Skrillex and Poo Bear are such an incredible team. The way Skrillex produced the song and broke down what he did, it just gave me chills. It was mind-blowing.[3]

Music VideoEdit

The music video for Fifth Harmony's promotional single of their third album Fifth Harmony, 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 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):
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)
