BackgroundEdit

Brave, Honest, Beautiful is a song by Fifth Harmony featuring singer Meghan Trainor included in their first studio album, Reflection, which debuted on February 3, 2015. Trainor posted a video on Instagram while in the recording studio of Camila singing the song.

Critical ResponseEdit

"A few songs about Fifth Harmony tried to act "like Mariah," the girls are joined by Meghan Trainor to advise their listeners to "dance like Beyonce," "shake like Shakira" and "pose like Madonna" on the fist-raising empowerment track. The collaboration sounds undercooked from a production standpoint, but the confident message rings through, and ends the album with the girls in a power stance.

"It’s not hard to spot the Destiny’s Child “Bootylicious” reference in the beginning as the girls call out: “Lauren, they ain’t ready for this. Normani, they ain’t ready for this…” The lyrics are some of their most powerful, because it’s simply a Fifth Harmony message to their fans, and the chorus holds strong under the powerful lyrics. And an added bonus is the surprise vocals from Megan Trainor in the last 60 seconds. That’s a lot of female empowerment in one song and it couldn’t have worked better.", according to Rebecca Mattina of andPOP.

Intro
Lauren:
We can feel the energy. We can feel how excited you are.

Ally:
And we love you. But before you go, we want you to quiet down for a second. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, count to three.

Dinah:
One.

Camila:
Breathe.

Normani:
Two.

Lauren:
Make sure you’re breathing.

Ally:
Three
Picture yourself in front of a mirror, staring at your reflection.

Lauren:
Look at yourself; what do you want to tell her or him?

Dinah:
What is your reflection saying to you?

Ally:
Breathe.

Camila:
Now, I want you to talk to your reflection

Normani:
look into your eyes and tell yourself:
I am brave.
I have a voice, I am strong enough to overcome my fears, I can stand up for what I believe in, I can stand up for myself. I can stand up for others because I am brave.

Dinah:
I am honest.
I can recognize the beauty in the world without disregarding the bad. I want to make this world and myself better because I am honest.

Lauren:
I am beautiful.
My body, every shape and every scar and every flaw and curve and thing that society tells me is wrong. My mind, my heart, my spirit. I am so beautiful.

Ally:
Now, I want you to open your eyes and look around you, at each other.

Camila:
Smile at the person next to you and recognize that they are also brave. They’ve gone through battles in life they thought they’d lose. They are honest, they are hopeful, they are beautiful, just like you.

Fifth Harmony:
And together tonight, we are all brave, we are all honest and we are so, so beautiful.

Fifth Harmony (Normani):
O-oh, o-oh, oh, o-oh
O-oh, oh, o-oh
O-oh, o-oh, oh, o-oh, oh
