Camila Cabello blew fans away last night at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards with a powerhouse debut solo performance. The former Fifth Harmony member opened with "I Have Questions" and transitioned into "Crying In The Club," which she co-wrote with Sia and Benny Blanco.
After her crazy night in Vegas, the 20-year-old singer called in to chat about writing her highly anticipated September 2017 debut album, The Healing. The Hurting. The Loving.
Through the writing process, Camila told us she found the light again while writing the album. For a while, she was going through a tough time emotionally and fans will be able to hear that in the progression of her songs on The Healing. The Hurting. The Loving. Writing the album taught her that life has its seasons, you're not always going to be super happy.
How is she doing now?
"Honestly, I'm so good. I'm so happy! I'm having the best time! " she told Elvis Duran when he asked about her Billboard performance."I gave everything that I had to give on-stage last night, so I feel really good about that."
She also opened up to us about writing "I Have Questions," which dropped over the weekend.
After starting the song in a hotel bathroom two years ago, she stopped writing for 6-months because she wasn't in a good place emotionally. Eventually, she finished the single as a way of therapy.
She revealed that after running into the person who inspired the track, she used the song as a way of speaking directly to their face about her issues and questions.
