About Camila Cabello

Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao is a Cuban-American pop and R&B singer born on March 3, 1997 in Cojímar, Havana, Cuba. She had lived between her birthplace and Mexico, before relocating to Miami, Florida at the age of five. While she was in grade 9, Cabello dropped out of her 2012–2013 high school year to pursue a career in singing. Although recieving her high school diploma later, Cabello auditioned for the second season of The X Factor US in North Carolina. Barely making it into the competition, she was granted an “alternate” role who was only able to audition if they had time. Eventually, she along with Dinah Jane Hansen, Ally Brooke Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei were tapped to form multi-platinum girl group, Fifth Harmony. The collective has released many chart-toppers with the highest being “Work From Home” peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Cabello is mainly a pop and R&B singer, but she is largely influenced by Latin music as she grew up listening to Alejandro Fernández, Celia Cruz, Calle 13, Shakira, and J Balvin who she would later work with on “Hey Ma.” Other non-latin influencers include Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Michael Jackson, and tour-mate Taylor Swift. Besides pop and R&B, she also incorporates elements of reggae-ton/dancehall, and hip-hop in her music.

Cabello has collaborated with Canadian artist Shawn Mendes on their hit “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” as well as American rapper Machine Gun Kelly on “Bad Things” as side-projects from Fifth Harmony. “Bad Things” also peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

She remained part of the group until the 19th of December 2016, where the four remaining girls announced via their official Twitter account that Camila had decided to leave the group to pursue a solo career. Camila then confirmed this by posting this statement on her personal Twitter account:

After the split, Camila released pop and dance-influenced debut single, “Crying in The Club” on May 19, 2017 and promotional single, “I Have Questions” two days later. The solo career also gave her a lot of features like on Cashmere Cat’s “Love Incredible,” J Balvin and Pitbull’s “Hey Ma,” and Major Lazer’s “Know No Better” along with American rappers Travis Scott and Quavo.

On July 20th, 2017 she supported the North American leg of Bruno Mars’s “24K Magic World Tour.” Shortly after on August 4th, she released 2 new songs, “OMG” featuring Quavo, and her solo breakout hit, “Havana” featuring Young Thug. “Havana” was confirmed as a single from her self-titled debut album on August 30th, 2017 through her Twitter. The song became a commercial and major success becoming her first #1 hit. The track was certified 5x platinum along with diamond certifications in Brazil and France—making Camila the fastest female artist born in the 90s to achieve a diamond certification, doing so in only 5 months.

On December 4th, 2017, Camila had revealed she changed the title of her debut album from The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving. to Camila. Alongside that announcement, two singles from her album were released; “Real Friends” and “Never Be the Same” on December 7th.

Camila also reached a major milestone on January 21, debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. Later on April 12, 2018, the album was certified platinum.
