Camila Cabello Admits She Felt She Had To 'Prove' To Herself & Others That She Had Something to Say In Her Music

Just like Louis Tomlinson, Camila Cabello is trying to prove herself.

During her interview with SiriusXM this week, the “Havana” singer opened up about the pressure to deliver a hit record after leaving Fifth Harmony.

“I remember feeling super nervous, but there was a time where I was like, ‘It doesn’t matter that much. It’s music! It’s not that deep,’” she says.

Camila adds, “I just really wanted to prove to people that I had something to say and that I wasn’t just a singer, that I was an artist, that I had a point of view and knew exactly the song that I wanted to write or the lyrics.”

“The first few weeks were me really wanting to prove that to people and prove to myself to. People I was writing with were like, ‘That’s actually a really great lyric’, or ‘That’s a really good idea’, or ‘oh yeah, we should do that!’”

Along the way, that helped Camila gain the confidence in her music.

“That made me less and less insecure to the point where by the end of it. I feel like the last studio session I went to, I would come in and know exactly what I want and not be afraid to say it.”

    I’m so proud of Camila. People have been giving her a lot of crap about what went down with 5H. Personally, I feel that all five ladies are very talented and all of them will have some sort of career in the music business if they want it. Camila has something so special about her, I noticed it early when the ladies were on the X factor. She has always had an excellent stage presence not to mention her unique voice. I am so happy that Havana has skyrocketed, in fact, Never Be The Same is number 10 on Itunes right now on the pop charts. So, two songs in the top 10, not too shabby. Congrats Camila, I can’t wait for the album!
