Camila Cabello used to be a part of Fifth Harmony. She collaborated with Shawn Mendes on “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and with Machine Gun Kelly on “Bad Things” and has been in the Top 20 on the US Billboard Top 100 with “Havana,” the lead single of her album reaching Number 1.

In 2012, Cabello auditioned for the X Factor in North Carolina. She got eliminated the first round, but she was called back with Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, and Dinah Jane to create a group. They eventually formed and became known as the girl group Fifth Harmony. Some of their popular songs are “Work From Home,” “Bo$$,” and “Worth It.”

Fifth Harmony had huge success all over the world and have won over 30 various awards.

Cabello decided to leave the group in 2016 because she wanted to work on her solo music.

Her debut album “Camila” came out January 12, 2018. A few songs from this album are “Never be the Same,” “All These Years,” “She Loves Control,” “Havana,” and “Inside Out.”

The album has 11 songs and sells for $9.99. Fans can also listen to the entire album on Spotify.

“Never be the Same” was originally released on December 7, 2017, from the album’s pre-order. This is my favorite song from the album. I really like that the mood of the song changes throughout. It starts off calm but then gets faster and very emotional. The song is about an addictive relationship that changed Cabello forever.

“Havana” is her most popular song on the album. It features Young Thug and was released on August 3, 2017, as a promotional single. It started to play the radio in September and she created a remix version in Spanish with Daddy Yankee. The song is sung in Spanish while Daddy Yankee replaces Young Thug’s verse. Due to the success of the remix, “Havana” became the album’s lead single. It has reached Number One in Australia, Canada, Ireland, and Mexico. It peaked number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 where it became Cabello’s highest ranking song. To date, it has been on the chart for 23 weeks.

“Into it” is one of her not so popular songs. I like how good the rhythm is and that her song is about her confessing that she likes a guy.

Cabello is now nominated for the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Award for Best Solo Breakout Artist, alongside artists such as Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and the other previous members of One Direction.  

She has received Teen Choice Award for Choice Single: Female Artist, a MTV Europe Award, Radio Disney Award, MuchMusic Video award, and many more.

I hope Cabello will come out with more albums after this one because I really enjoy listening to her music and she is a really talented artist.

She is on tour but in South America.
