Review by Thomas Bleach
In 2017 we saw Camila Cabello depart Fifth Harmony to launch her solo career and whilst it may have been a slow start she had an incredible end to the year with “Havana” going number one all over the world. Her appropriately titled debut album “Camila” boasts 10 personal tracks that explore love, loss, heartbreak and growth. Opening with current single “Never Be The Same”, the synth and drum ballad looks at falling in love with someone and being forever changed by the impact they had on you. She continues to hit you in the feels with the minimalistic and impressive ballads “All The Years”, “Consequences” and “Real Friends”. But not all the ballads are slam dunks with “Somethings Gotta Give” becoming bit forgettable. She then injects her Latin vibes with the smash hit “Havana” and continues them with the enjoyable “She Loves Control” and “Inside Out’. But “Into It” becomes the seductively driven pop track that you didn’t realise you needed so badly in your life. She croons through the verses to give you this empowerful hook which is sexy and strong and will be instantly stuck in your head. This album is a very strong debut for an artist who had a lot of criticism for leaving the hit girl group. While it may not be absolutely perfect and does have a couple of skip worthy moments it’s still very much worth a listen even if it’s just purely to hear “Into It”.
