REVIEW: Camila Cabello- ‘Camila’

In 2017, Camila Cabello certainly justified her risky decision to split off from her girl group Fifth Harmony. She showed off her appealing voice on hits with MGK and Major Lazer, then dropped two of the summer’s breeziest jams. “OMG” with Quavo was nice, but it justifiably took a backseat to the marvelous piano-and-horn-driven “Havana,” […]
