Departing from Fifth Harmony when the group is on the peak of their success doesn't mean that Camila Cabello wants to leave music industry altogether. Instead, Camila set her status as successful solo singer by releasing hit songs such as "Hey Ma" and "Bad Things". She later announced her upcoming solo debut album "The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving." in May 2017.
Camila, who is included in Time's The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2016 list, revealed on Twitter that her forthcoming effort would tell the story of her journey from a time when she was lost to a time when she found herself again. " 'The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.' is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when I was lost to a time to when I found myself again," she tweeted.
Following the album announcement, Camila unleashed the lead track off the album entitled "Crying in the Club". She performed the song for the first time at 2017 Billboard Music Awards in May. After announcing that the release date of the album was pushed back to 2018, Camila unveiled the second track off the set called "Havana".
It didn't take too long for the track to become a hit. The song, which features rapper Young Thug, became Camila's first No. 1 song in the U.K. It also marks Camila as the only member of Fifth Harmony to break into the top 10 in the U.K. as a solo artist.
Not only the track, but the music video for "Havana" has also become the talk of the town. This is because Camila showed off her acting skill by playing different characters on the telenovela-inspired clip. In a recent interview, the singer revealed that the two characters of the clip represent two parts of her personality.
"My family always called me Camila. When I came to school in the United States, I was really, really shy and the teachers started calling me Karla," she said. "In my life, I push myself to do a lot of things that make me uncomfortable, and that's how I started dancing. That's how I feel like I found myself through Camila and performance and music, as that confident video vixen. They're both over-exaggerated personas of me."
