Camila Cabello celebrated the one-year anniversary of her self-titled debut solo album’s release on Jan. 12. The former Fifth Harmony member expressed big love and gratitude to her fans in a series of Twitter posts for embracing the Grammy-nominated album.
Cabello began her heartfelt lead post saying: “To my army, my friends, my fans.... I love you so so so much. This year has been all about you and the new memories we’ve made with these songs …” She referred to the tracks as her “little secrets” which spawned bond-making memories between them. She also asked her fans to ask her some questions and she would “spill some tea” about each of the songs. (See the tweets embedded below).
Some of Cabello’s revelations included saying she wrote “All These Years” the fastest for the album, noting it only took 15 minutes via acoustic guitar. She also shared she broke down crying in a bathroom break after singing “Something’s Gotta Give" and dished that “In the Dark” was sparked after going to an L.A. party and feeling like she couldn’t forge any kind of “real” connection with anyone. More track facts include, "Never Be the Same" is her favorite one from the album and "Consequences" was the hardest to perform.
While one fan asked her to spill some details about her next solo album, she kept mum and teased her reply: “I’m not saying anything till it’s something I’m comfortable with you guys tattooing on your bodies.”
2018 was a huge year Cabello. Highlights included opening for Taylor Swift on her Reputation Stadium Tour, the album debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and claiming the No. 1 spot on Rolling Stone’s Best Pop Albums of 2018 list, and earning a People’s Choice Award nomination for Album of 2019.
The record is also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards and Cabello won Artist of the Year at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. The Cuban-American singer-songwriter also notably ranked at No. 21 on Forbes 2018 30 Under 30 list. Most recently, she was nominated for a 2019 BRIT Award for International Female Solo Artist.
To my army, my friends, my fans.... I love you so so so much. This year has been all about you and the new memories we’ve made with these songs. At first they were my little secrets, and now they’re bonds that bind us together in the moments we’ve made with them. pic.twitter.com/Uq7IPeoPnE— camila (@Camila_Cabello) January 13, 2019
