We sure hope this new album is worth it!

Fifth Harmony is one of the most popular girl groups in the world, but if you're not the biggest pop culture junkie, then you may be surprised to know they've actually only ever had one album.

Their debut Reflection dropped January 30 of last year, and while they've only released three singles off the set, Normani Koredi, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabello, and Ally Brooke are already poised with a followup.

The X Factor finalists announced on Twitter Thursday that their second album 7/27 — named after the day they were put together by Simon Cowell — will be out May 20… even though that doesn't make nearly as much sense marketing wise as putting it out two months later…

But that's not the best part — they also announced that we'll be getting a new song called Work From Home THIS Friday!!!

Never say Heidi Klum doesn't appreciate a gift!

The supermodel stopped by Friday's Ellen to promote her new line of lingerie, but she ended up showing the audience the underwear she had on as well!

After sitting down, the America's Got Talent judge admitted she looked pretty leggy in her little black dress, but thankfully had an extra pair to use courtesy of the daytime talk show host!

Klum revealed that to cover up, she put on the pair of complementary undies that Ellen gives away to all her guests! She said:

"I put your underwear on under it that you put in my dressing room. I always wear mine."

To prove it, the 42-year-old then proceeded to flash the entire audience to reveal she was, in fact, wearing the undies in question!
