Camila Cabello is a Cuban-American singer and songwriter. Notably known for her appearance as a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony as well as her third-place fame on the second season of The X Factor in 2012, Cabello rose to prominence in such a short time! After officially leaving Fifth Harmony in 2016, she released her debut solo single in 2017, “Crying in the Club”, which performed modestly before her second single “Havana” reached number one in several countries worldwide. Cabello’s eponymous debut studio album, Camila (2018), has been well received.

Camila Cabello auditioned for The X Factor in Greensboro, North Carolina. She auditioned with Aretha Franklin’s “Respect”, however, her audition was not aired because the TV show did not get the rights to the song. After elimination during the “boot camp” portion of the process in Miami, Florida, Cabello was called back to the stage along with Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, and Dinah Jane to form the girl group that would later become known as Fifth Harmony. After finishing in third place on the show they signed a joint deal with Syco Music, owned by Simon Cowell, and Epic Records, L.A. Reid’s record label.
On December 18, 2016, the group announced Cabello’s departure, with both parts explaining different circumstances of the exit.
In November 2015, Cabello collaborated with Canadian singer Shawn Mendes on a duet titled “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, a song they wrote together. The single charted at number 20 in the US and 18 in Canada and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). On October 14, 2016, American rapper Machine Gun Kelly released a joint single with Cabello called “Bad Things”, which reached a peak of number four on the US Billboard Hot 100. Time.com included her on “The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2016” list.
In May 2017, Cabello announced the future release of her first studio album, at the time titled The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving., which she described as “the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when I was lost to a time when I found myself again.” Her first solo single “Crying in the Club” was released on May 19, 2017, followed by a performance at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. She joined Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic World Tour as an opening act for several of its dates. The singer also partnered with clothing brand Guess as the face for their 2017 Fall campaign.
On January 8, 2018, after 7 weeks on the top of Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40, Cabello’s “Havana” became the longest reigning single in the number 1 position for a female artist in a lead role since Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” which set its own record five years prior, in 2013.
