Camila Cabello launches solo career with Sia written debut single
Camila Cabello rose to fame as part of the girl band Fifth Harmony. The girls participated in X Factor in the US and ended up as one of the most popular girl groups of the moment with international hits like ‘Work From Home’ and ‘Worth It’. At the end of 2016 Cabello appeared on the Machine Gun Kelly single ‘Bad Things’, which became a hit as well and shortly after she announced to be leaving Fifth Harmony. A whole lot of drama between Camila and the other four girls followed, but the decisions had been made and Camila now launches her solo career with the Sia and Benny Blanco co-written single ‘Crying In The Club’.
If you thought the beat of Sia’s hit ‘Cheap Thrills’ was over-used after Ed Sheeran borrowed it for his single ‘Shape Of You’, Camila Cabello and her team obviously disagree. ‘Crying In The Club’ sounds exactly the same in the verses and even vocally Camila seems to want to imitate the Sia demo she probably heard. ‘Crying In The Club’ is a contemporary little tune with an infectious chorus that does get a bit repetitive towards the end. Lyrically it is all about trying to get over an ex-lover without crying on a night out. Relatable stuff, isn’t it!? It just seems way too faceless to actually launch the solo career of a former girl band member. Also it would have helped if the song did not recycle a beat that has been dominating radio for about a year now. Let us hope Camila will give us more of her own sound on the follow up.
