SINGLE REVIEW: Ally Brooke – The Truth Is There

Whenever a popular group disbands there is always talk about who is going to be the most and least successful in the wake. And obviously no one wants to be noted as the artist that holds the least impact but sadly in Fifth Harmony’s case, Ally Brooke is that individual. Her solo career has been uninteresting and equally ties with Dinah Jane’s uncomfortable attempt. But with ‘Perfect’ gaining mediocre creditability she has tried to scrape the barrel with a generic pop-dance moment. ‘The Truth Is There’ is one of the year’s most unoriginal tracks and it’s quite disappointing because this track serves as the motivational campaign reboot of WW (formerley Weight Watches). After being chosen by Oprah and Diane Warren to release this track, it really should have been a more special and unique moment. But in hindsight, she would’ve been better to not do this campaign. Instead of reaching her to a new fanbase it actually tarnishes her reputation. It’s very cookie cutter and ironically uninspiring with it’s basic storyline. Meghan Trainor’s vanilla pop sound would have been more suited to this release and probably would’ve found a way to spice up the delivery. However Ally Brooke just sings it generically and doesn’t add any personality, attitude or flavour to this very plain song.
