Camila is here to stay!
After much speculation whether or not she will be able to stand on her own two feet without Fifth Harmony, Camila has gone and made one of the most successful solo female debuts in recent years.
After “Crying in the Club” didn’t quite generate a huge buzz she managed to bounce back and launch her solo debut with chart-breaking hit “Havana”.
Starting the year fresh, the ex-band member has finally dropped her first full-length album and it proves she is a force to be reckoned with.
It’s the perfect mix of Latino inspired pop perfection with a string of emotional ballads.
She goes from tearjerkers like “All These Years”, “Consequences”, “Something’s Gotta Give” to downright infectious fiesta pop on the catchy “She Loves Control” and very sensual “Into It” along with a little powerhouse pop on “Never Be the Same”.
There’s even a little island infused touch on “Inside Out” and “In the Dark” with a little hint of Justin Bieber “Sorry” vibes on “Real Friends”.
While a little short Camila’s solo debut is cohesive and has a little something for everyone, all while managing to showcase the singer’s incredible talent.
Verdict: One of the strongest female band member turned solo artist debut albums in recent memory.
Best Tracks: Havana, Into It, Something’s Gotta Give, She Loves Control, In the Dark, Never Be The Same.
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
