Album Review Camila Cabello’s ‘Camila’: A New Latina Pop Princess Rises

2018 has become a promising start for Camila Cabello, the Cuban-Mexican singer who started her artistically musical journey with a proper led single in ‘Havana’. The latin-pop infused song became the perfect catalyst for the introduction and later success of Cabello as a breakthrough artist.

The singer however already comes from a very successful girl group, Fifth Harmony, who helped revitalize the lagging female entourages of the 2010 decade. Songs like ‘Worth It’ and ‘Work From Home’ became international hits with the latter becoming the best selling girl group single in Billboard history. But Cabello doesn’t regret her past success with the group as she’s only wished the best for the group while she left for her solo journey with positivity and a head held high.

In Camila, songs like ‘She Loves Control’ & ‘Inside Out’ continue the savory flame of her proud Latina heritage with hints and sounds of reggaeton, salsa and Spanish lyricism.

Her silky vocals are beautifully shown and showcased in pop ballads like ‘Consequences’. Although it’s one of the shortest tracks off the album, it’s a song that perhaps shows more vulnerability than any other song in her current discography as an artist. This continues in ‘Something’s Gotta Give’, a sweeping piano number produced by The Futuristics (‘Bad Things’).

‘Real Friends’ & ‘All These Years’ sound modern with a dash of acoustic-pop edge, similar to her past works such as ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ with multi-platinum singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes.

Overall, Camila is a promising self-debut pop album that successfully helps distinguish herself from the rest of the female pop pack. For now, it’s safe to say she’s marked her territorial spot in the land of mainstream pop.
