"Deliver" is a promotional single by Fifth Harmony included in their third studio album, Fifth Harmony, which debuted on August 25, 2017.

BackgroundEdit

“Deliver” is the the most R&B song in Fifth Harmony’s self-titled album. It was written by Taylor Parks, who also wrote Fifth Harmony’s feminist anthem “BO$$”. Dinah described the track as “the kinda song for when you’re getting down with your man.”

Dinah: Let me just say that [producer/songwriter] Taylor Parks delivered on this song —  like, she wrote this song when we were in the room with her. She was there with us when we did 'BO$$,' and this is our second record with her, so once we played her some of our songs, she immediately came up with this direction. It definitely gives off the Mariah Carey tones — a little bit of R&B but modernized, and I think that’s why I love it so much. I love me some Mariah Carey, I grew up on that because of my mother. It’s just so special to me, especially melodically, it’s so thick — like, the little pre-chorus, it’s like you’re bouncing off of the melody, but you’re not.”[1]
The song was released as a promotional single on September 8, 2017, along with a music video.

In an interview with Official Charts, Lauren stated that “Deliver” was one of her personal favorites of the album:

Lauren: It’s super “Destiny’s Child” and it gives you good soul and harmonies. The melodies are crazy and the concept is awesome. It bounces, and it’s super clever.[2]

Music VideoEdit

The music video for Fifth Harmony's promotional single of their third album Fifth Harmony, Deliver was released on September 8, 2017 on VEVO.
