…And we are loving all the sexy, sultry vibes! Former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello released her 11-track debut solo outing Friday, January 12. Simply titled Camila, the album captures the talented, feisty vocalist in her element – and gives her the perfect avenue to come out on her own as a performer.
Camila dropped three singles leading up to her album’s release – “Havana” (feat. Young Thug), “Never Be The Same, “ and “Real Friends.” And they all garnered rave reviews (come on – from that very first beat of Havana, we were so totally sold!) – an excellent preview of the goodness that was to come!
The iTunes editor’s Note says it best:
“Steamy pop jams and soul-baring confessionals. A stunning debut.”
Camilla took to Instagram to thank her fans for patiently waiting for her debut album to be released Captioning the text post: “I love you. thank you. #ThisIsCAMILA #CAMILA”
WhenCamila Cabello parted ways with Fifth Harmony, it was a HUGE deal. Her decision led to a lot of controversy, gossip, speculation, and statements from various people involved.
But you won’t hear anything bad from her!
The singer of smash hit “Havana” seems to have taken the high road and chosen to stay positive. She’s moved on, focused on her solo endeavours, and chosen to avoid any negativity with regards to her former music group.
Camilla Cabello opened up to Rolling Stone magazine about the whole deal:
“A lot of my fans were, or are, fans of the group. I don’t like to ruin the dream. The believed in something that’s beautiful. I’m sure with One Direction, too, nobody really saw behind the scenes. You just see the dream.”
We know we’re excited for Camila’s newly completed debut album! But until then, she’s giving us fire hits after the other. Although she was very loyal to her fans, as she dedicated a post for them regarding her upcoming album and all the love and support she’s been getting.
The former harmonizer also tells her fans what they can expect in her upcoming album and why it’s titled ‘Camila.’

First of all, let it be known that Camila Cabello is one talented woman. Two, this music video is everything. Three, you have to see it! We all know you’ve been humming Havana unconsciously since its release, now you finally get to see a story behind it!
Not sure what ending I was hoping for, but that was surprisingly satisfying. We especially love hearing other artists on Camila’s songs too and rumor has it, she’s been eyeing Kendrick Lamar.
After releasing her debut singles from her upcoming album The Hurting The Healing The Loving, Camila Cabello attended her first Much Music Video Awards as a solo act. As expected – Camila totally killed her performance, as well as taking home her very own award for “Best New International Artist.”

After releasing her debut single, “Hurt By You” – Emily Warren is at the top of everyone’s radar. After years of writing incredible music for others, the 24-year-old songwriter is putting herself first.
She has written for artists such as Fifth Harmony, The Chainsmokers, Melanie Martinez and many more. This time the spotlight is on her and she had plenty to say about her upcoming career.
1. You recently dropped your new single, “Hurt By You” can you tell us what the song is about and was inspired by?
Emily: “Yeah! The song was inspired by feelings I was having when I was first falling in love with my boyfriend. Making yourself that vulnerable can be scary but it’s crucial to falling in love. This song is and was at the time a reminder to myself to not be afraid and to let love happen.”
2. What’s the biggest difference in writing for yourself vs writing for others?
Emily: “There’s not too much of a difference because I like to always write about the truth, so whether it’s my story or someone else’s, it’s always coming from a real place. I guess the only difference is that this time I had to go within myself to get the truth vs. pulling it out of someone else.”
3. What have been some of your favorite parts of writing for Fifth Harmony?
Emily: “I actually don’t know many of the girls too well aside from Camilla who I’ve worked with directly. But they’re all super talented, and it was really fun being a part of that!”
4. How did you first get to into working with The Chainsmokers that lead you being part of some of their biggest hits?
Emily: “I met Drew and Alex because my song “Until You Were Gone” (which was just a demo at the time) was pitched to them. They produced out a version and then after they released the song, I met them at a show. In our first session we wrote “Don’t Let Me Down”, so it became clear pretty quickly that we were creatively compatible. Since then, they’ve become some of my closest friends and doing this with people you care about and admire is what this is ALL about!!!”
5. Who are your musical influences for your personal song writing?
Emily: “I grew up listening to music from the 60s.. The Beatles, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, The Beach Boys. So that music influenced me a lot. The songwriting in the Jazz standards is what really gets me though. Ella Fitzgerald sings my favs – the storytelling in those songs is crazy.”
6. Who’s career path is most similar to the one you want to go down for your own music career?
Emily: “The person who’s path I admire the most is Carole King, because she crushed it as both a writer an an artist and didn’t compromise one for the other.”
7. What is your ultimate music goal?
Emily: “To put good vibes into the world!! Music has helped me countless times, I would love to be a part of doing that for someone else.”
8. Would you want to headline your own tour?
Emily: “Hell yeah, that’s the dream!”
9. What is one thing you always need in the studio when recording?
Emily: “An instrument!”
10. What is your favorite part of the music making process?
Emily: “If you are vulnerable and honest and confident in yourself when writing you can really touch on something true that other people will be able to relate to. Getting to this place of trust with other people you may be meeting for the first time in a writing session is a beautiful thing, and that’s the feeling that makes this all so exciting for me – connecting with people.”
Emily also participated in our “Finish the Sentence” Game!
