Cuban-American singer-songwriter Camila Cabello was born in 1997 as the child of a Cuban mother and Mexican father in Cojímar, a district of the Cuban capital Havanna. Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao became famous as a member of the girl group ‘Fifth Harmony’, a product of the second season of casting show The X Factor put together by Simon Cowell, which the singer left in 2016 to pursue her solo career.
While still in the band, Camila Cabello released the single ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ without the other band members on Island Records. She sang the duet together with Canadian pop singer Shawn Mendes who was still rather unknown at the time. The song was created during Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour, on which Cabello and Mendes wrote it backstage. With her debut as a solo artist, Camila reached No. 1 on Billboard 200.
On 25 June, 2019, she released her second song together with Shawn Mendes entitled ‘Señorita’, which became a No. 1 hit in several countries. In May 2019, Camila broke up with her boyfriend Matthew Hussey, with whom she had been together since the beginning of 2018. Since summer 2019, Cabello has been in a relationship with Shawn Mendes. She is now busy promoting the song ‘Don’t Go Yet’, her first new song since 2019. The song is just a taste of what to expect from her third LP which will be titled ‘Familia’.
