Background Edit

“He Like That” is the third to be released off Fifth Harmony’s self-titled album. The girls have described the track as “sexy” and “a little dirty”.The track was released as a single on August, 25, 2017. A music video for the song was released on the same day.Fifth Harmony first performed this song live at Urban Outfitters on August, 25, 2017

The song was written by its producers Ammo, DallasK and Ester Dean. The song was initially offered to Fifth Harmony when their A&R executive, Chris, played during the recording sessions for the album, when the demo started playing they considered it as "different," accepting to record the song in the following sessions. The vocals were recorded and produced by Chris "TEK" O'Ryan.

Dinah via LA Times: We were recording these other songs, and our A&R guy Chris referred the song and he was like, ‘Guys, you have to do this on the track,’ so he played it for us. The first time we heard it, we were like, "Woah, this is so different."
Honestly, I didn’t know where 'Pumps and a Bump' came from. I didn’t know what it meant, and then I told my mom about it and she was like, ‘Girl, you don’t know nothing about this. This is from my time -- "Pumps and a Bumps"![2]
Normani: When I first heard it, I was like, “It sounds a little dirty.”
Lauren: It is a little dirty. [Laughs]
Dinah: It’s just heels and your butt!
Lauren: Whatever, it’s sexy and cute.[3]

Music VideoEdit

The music video for "He Like That" was released on August 25, 2017 on VEVO. Parts of the video were captured in an old club located in Los Angeles, California.[4] The video contains neon-drenched lights, an intensive illumination and balance of colors (these characteristics also can be found in the video for "Down" which Fifth Harmony used as a base to recreate the same colorful aesthetic in the video).[5]

The video is very reminiscent of 90's hip hop block parties and Jamaicans dancehall;[6] it features graffitis and loudspeakers.

Deepa Lakshmin of MTV News blog viewed the video as "hotter" than their video for "Work from Home" and praised the group's coordination.[7] The video received comparisons to Britney Spears' video for "I'm a Slave 4 U" due to their similar themes and choreography.[8][9]
