Camila Cabello Opens Up About Her Decision to Go Solo

Camila Cabello‘s debut album, Camila, is officially a week old!

The 20-year-old “Havana” singer recently chatted with NPR about her music and opened up about the moment she made the decision to go solo.

“I had been writing songs since I was 16. And at first, I wanted to write for other people,” Camila shared. “Then I, you know, I had these songs that I was like — they were so personal.”

She continues, “I was just kind of telling my story, and I couldn’t imagine me giving it to somebody and somebody else singing them and performing them and making a video for them because it was too close to me.”

Camila changed her mind after that.

“I was like, ‘I don’t want to write for other people. I want this to just be my song. This is my expression of who I am as an artist,’” she adds. “I went a long time writing songs thinking that nobody will ever hear this for another like 10 years because I’ll still be in the group.”

“I’ve made the decision to just kind of go out on my own and start just expressing myself and my vision.”
