Stirring the charts with “Havana” in the summer of 2017, Camila Cabello, a Cuban girl, began to impress music lovers.
Karla Camila Cabello was born in 1997 in Havana – the capital of Cuba. She carried Cuban-Mexican blood and moved between the two countries as a child, until the family moved to Miami when she was seven years old.
On her 15th birthday, instead of holding a traditional Quinceañera party which celebrates the 15-year-old birthday of a Mexican girl, Camila asked her parents to take her to Carolina to audition for The X -Factor. She waited until the third day to perform. On the radio show Woman of The Hour, the singer shared that during the first two days, the organizers always advised her to go home because she could not audition. Finally, she auditioned because they found me really looking forward to singing. That is the Cuban personality.
Camila’s performance was not broadcasted, but the producer kept her with four other girls to form a girl group called Fifth Harmony. After four years, Camila decided to leave the group and start her own career.
As a soloist, Camila incorporated Latin influences into Pop and R&B in songs with the desire for Latin music to spread. She combined rapper, Cuban-American music producer Pitbull and J Balvin – released Spanish music product called Hey Ma. The MV was performed on Camila’s hometown: Cuba is filled with tropical colors.
The single Havana is released in August 2017 with a more Latin feel. The audio version of the song on the YouTube channel attracted 1.59 billion views. After two months, Camila released the MV, reaching more than 800 million views. The song rose to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and Camila album topped the Billboard Hot 200. Havana and the Camila album earned the singer two Grammy awards.
Recently, the singer reunited Shawn Mendes in the vibrant song Senorita. The song reached 100 million views on the YouTube platform after six days and currently attracts more than 430 million views. The song stayed at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, marking the outstanding success of two young Latin pop singers in the United States.
