Camila Cabello matches impressive record held by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry – with the runaway success of her massive hit ‘Havana’.
Hailing her debut album “a strong and surprisingly confident first impression“, NME wrote: “Though there’s no obvious “darkness into light” storyline, ‘Camila’ definitely has edgier moments than the romantic ‘Havana’, which was named after the Cuban city where she was born. “You’re good at making me feel small,” she sings on ‘Something’s Gotta Give’, a strikingly direct break-up song. Stripped-down piano ballad ‘Consequences’ feels even more candid: she tells a former partner that “loving you was dumb and dark and cheap,” and says she “lost a little weight because I wasn’t eating”.
“It’s a long way from her biggest Fifth Harmony hit, ‘Work From Home’, which was basically about bunking off early to get laid.
