Camila penned a note to fans explaining why this is so emotional for her.
Camila Cabello's forthcoming debut solo album is titled Camila and debuts January 12, 2018.
She's coming! Camila has been hard at work on her new record for a year now. She threw out a couple of tracks to see what stuck.
The Sia-penned "Crying In The Club" is a banger, but general audiences didn't gravitate towards it the way they did with her Pharrell-produced bop "Havana."
Camila went back to the drawing board to record and include music that marches to the beat of the same drum, and it appears the singer has collected a batch of songs she's proud of.
It also means her old album title, The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving., is no more.
“My debut album is finally finished. now i’m trying to stead my heartbeat,” Camila said in a note to fans. “I can’t wait for you to hear what has been the soundtrack to the past year of m life… all of these songs have special memories behind them, and i’m not gonna lie, it feels emotional letting them go, feels like the end of a chapter.”
As for why Camila decided to make the album self-titled, the pop star says it’s because “this is where this chapter in my life ended. it started with somebody else’s story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself.” Read the full note below:

The album will be available for pre-order this Thursday and with it two new songs: "Never Be The Same" and "Real Friends."

"Havana" hit No. 1 in the UK for several weeks (it's the longest-running female number one since Adele) and peaked at No. 2 in the states. I predict Camila will open with some big numbers. Get that top spot, sis!
