The campaign asks young people to make a sign for their friend that says “I’m the boss of…” and to share why their friends think they’re unique. Fans can enter to win prizes including the chance to meet Fifth Harmony and act as their “boss” for a day, a total of $12,500 in scholarship money and a chance for their picture to be featured on the #ImABoss microsite. To participate, young people can sign up and share their photos at www.dosomething.org/boss or text BOSS to 38383. “BO$$” is the lead single from Fifth Harmony’s upcoming debut full-length album which will be released this fall. The new album is the follow up to their EP Better Together which landed at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 and was Top 10 on iTunes in 41 countries and spawned the hit single “Miss Movin’ On.” The spanish-language version of the EP Juntos debuted at #1 on the Latin iTunes chart.
