The Life is a promotional single by Fifth Harmony included in their sophomore studio album, 7/27, which debuted on May 27, 2016.

Critical Response

"Over a big, bouncy beat, the girls toast to self-care and preach the importance of living stress-free: “Give it up for the kids/ Eating good, getting lit/ Living life, feeling rich.” That DGAF ‘tude, coupled with those sunny synths, basically make this a summer anthem in the making. Get about that life, y’all." according to Madeline Roth of MTV.

"The only legitimate way to listen to this is to whip out the sun lounger, pop on the sunglasses, make sure you have a ridiculously fancy-looking Mai Tai in hand, and turn it up loud. If this song was anymore uplifting it would have to replace helium on the periodic table.", according to Lewis Corner of Digitalspy.

"“The Life” made a lot of sense after we heard “Work From Home” but can’t quite compare to the fun lyrics and choreo from the latter that we’ve come to love and memorize. The Tinashe penned track is definately fun but doesn’t stand out among the bangers and ballads off of the record. Still, we love ourselves some catchy and sassy Fifth Harmony — they really are the best in the biz.", according to Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues of ANDPOP.

Charts

The Life debuted at number 97 on the UK official charts, becoming the girls fourth song to debut on these charts.It also reached the top fifty in Scotland.

Lyrics

Camila:
Oh, I...

Ally:
Fifth Harmony, yeah

Camila:
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Lauren:
Ever since I'm young I'm tryna get it right
Every year I'm looking for a goal
Don't sleep 'til we see the daylight
Living big, going up on the rope

Camila with Fifth Harmony:
I like seeing all the white lights

Camila:
Keep it up, pour it up for the night

Camila with Fifth Harmony:
Two times, I'mma get it two times

Camila:
Double up, run it back on my mind

Fifth Harmony (Camila ad-libs):
This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life (This is the life)

This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life (This is the life)
This is the life, life, life
This is the life (This is the life)

Give it up for the kids
Eating good, getting lit
Living life feeling rich
Ooh I, ooh I, yea (This is the life)

We the best in the biz
Breaking off betting chips
Living life feeling rich
Ooh I, ooh I, yea

Ally:
Level up, meet me court side
Tricking out, whipping hard in the coupe (Dinah: What?)
I'mma go, gotta board flight
Of the term, there's a show I gotta do

Normani with Fifth Harmony:
No stress baby you can find us

Normani:
Getting down on a beach in Dubai

Normani with Fifth Harmony:
Pool side sipping on a Mai Tai

Normani:
Double up, run it back on my mind

Fifth Harmony (Camila ad-libs):
This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life (Ally: Yeah, yeah)
This is the life, life, life (This is the life)

This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life (This is the life)
This is the life, life, life
This is the life (Ally: Hey, hey) (This is the life)

Give it up for the kids
Eating good, getting lit
Living life feeling rich (Normani: Yea-ah, yeah)
Ooh I, ooh I, yea (This is the life)

We the best in the biz (Ally: We the best in the biz)
Breaking off betting chips (This is the life)
Living life feeling rich
Ooh I, ooh I (This is the life)

No stress baby you can find us
Getting down on a beach in Dubai
Pool side sipping on a Mai Tai
Double up, up, up, up...

Camila & Ally:
This is the life

Fifth Harmony (Camila ad-libs):
This is the life, life, life (Ally: oh yeah)
This is the life, life, life (This is the life)

This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life (Dinah: This is the life)
This is the life, life, life
This is the life, life, life

Give it up, give it up

Fifth Harmony (Dinah ad-libs):
Give it up for the kids
Eating good, getting lit (Ally: Give it up)
Living life feeling rich
Ooh I, ooh I, yea (Camila: This is the life)

We the best in the biz (Best in the biz)
Breaking off betting chips (Oh baby)
Living life feeling rich
Ooh I, ooh I (Camila: Ooohh, I)
