For the first time, Camila Cabello - whose first solo album drops January 12 - has explained in detail why she finally chose to quit her former group, Fifth Harmony, in December 2016. As for solo plans, Cabello added, she actually wanted to remain a Harmony member while exploring solo work.

"It definitely hurt my feelings".

With wailing horns and Cabello's sultry delivery, the Pharrell-produced Havana is unlike anything else in the mainstream Top 40 right now: a slinky, dance-floor-ready ode to the Cuban city in which she was born that further demonstrates the desire for more Latin representation in pop after the runaway successes of Despacito and Mi Gente previous year. "I wasn't expecting it, I wasn't prepared for it-especially because at that point I'd moved on from it".

Cabello announced on December 18, 2016, that she was leaving the band after the final stop of their Jingle Ball tour. "It became clear that it was not possible to do solo stuff and be in the group at the same time.if anyone wants to explore their individuality, it's not right for people to tell you no". "I don't like holding onto the past". "Why?'" Camila said to The New York Times as tears filled up her eyes.

Rumors of a feud reached a fever pitch last August when the four-member group (sans Camila) pulled a statement-making stunt during a performance at MTV's Video Music Awards.

Last year, there was a seismic shift in cultural appetite: Rap overtook rock as the most popular music genre, and soldiering pop heavyweights found chinks in their armor as swaggering viral upstarts came for their thrones. I was just like, 'What? After her request to write lyrics for Fifth Harmony was denied, Cabello, who said she wanted to pursue a solo career while still in the group, realized something had to change (via Spin).

"I have to make space for the good stuff to happen in my life", Camila continued. "And obviously, Blake Lively is a queen".

Camila Cabello has "butterflies in her stomach" over the release of her debut solo album. And I love them together but they were super cool.
