“The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.” is the upcoming solo debut studio album by Cuban-American singer and songwriter Camila Cabello, known as former member of pop group Fifth Harmony. It’s expected to be released sometime in Septmeber via Epic Records and Sony Music Entertainment.
The 19-year-old pop starlet has worked in the studio with American producers and hitmakers Benny Blanco, Diplo and Cashmere Cat. Camila left the group on December 18th and the news came through an official statement via Fifth Harmony’s social media pages. It was the first day the singer finished her record deal as a member of the band.
Cabello released three solo singles. In 2015, she collaborated on Shawn Mendes’ track “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, and this year she released the charity song “Power In Me” along the aforementioned Benny Blanco, and the current smash Top 10 hit “Bad Things”, a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly.
The good news for the Harmonizers are that the four remaining members continue as a quartet and they will release a third studio album sometime this year.
Fifth Fourth Harmony are strong!
A solo version of “Bad Things” was registered on ASCAP. Cabello worked in the studio with Ryan Tedder and his band. A new track called “Hey Ma“ was recorded for the Fast & Furious 8 soundtrack and included the collaboration of Pitbull and J. Balvin.
During an interview with Billboard, Camila revealed the name of two songs that she worked. They are called “It’s Only Natural” and the Cuban-inspired track “Havana“.
The singer has also worked in the studio with American producer Kuk Harrell, who is the mastermind behind hits like “Umbrella” and “Only Girl in the World” by Rihanna, as well as Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)“.
During an interview with All Access, Ryan Tedder confirmed that Cabello’s debut is highly-influenced by Cuban music. The singer released the lead single from the album “Crying In the Club“ on May 19th with a music video which includes another new track “I Have Questions“.
