2018 | Latin | Pop | Rhythm And Blues
Camila is the eponymous debut studio album by Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello. It was released on January 12, 2018, through Epic Records, Syco and Sony Music. Work on the album began in January 2017, following Cabello's departure from Fifth Harmony, with whom she had released two studio albums and one EP. The project was initially announced as The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving. but was later changed to simply Camila. Primarily a pop record, it incorporates elements of Latin music and R&B. The album was executive produced by Frank Dukes, with additional work from Skrillex and The Futuristics, among others. Cabello also worked with artists such as Sia Furler, Charli XCX, and Ed Sheeran on tracks that were later scrapped. Camila has been met with positive reviews from contemporary music critics, most of whom commended the Latin influences and ballads featured.
The album was originally set to be released in September 2017 with Cabello's debut solo single "Crying in the Club" intended as the lead single, but following the significant commercial success of her follow-up single "Havana", several songs were scrapped, resulting in work on the album continuing and its release postponed. "Havana" has since topped charts in territories such as Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. "Never Be the Same" was released as the album's second single in December 2017, and was officially serviced for radio airplay the following January. Cabello promoted the album through a number of interviews and televised performances. Commercially, it debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200.
