Camila Cabello Is Officially A Solo Artist With Sia-Penned Debut Single “Crying In The Club”

Recommended Posts

Let the beat carry.

Camila Cabello's ascent towards pop superstardom begins now.

After leaving Fifth Harmony, Camila immediately started working on her debut album, The Hurting, the Healing, the Loving. She linked up with some major talent for it, including OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, Pharrell Williams, Tyler, The Creator, Charli XCX and Max Martin. She's also worked closely with Major Lazer, who says they've recorded about 20 songs together.

For her new tune, “Crying In The Club,” Camila enlisted songwriting veteran Sia and producers Benny Blanco & Cashmere Cat. Their influence on it is undeniable, namely Sia's, and that's problematic for an emerging artist trying to re-introduce herself to the masses.

"Ain't no crying in the club (hey, hey) / Let the beat carry your tears as they fall baby," she croons over twinkly production and a chilly beat. "Ain't no crying in the club (hey, hey) / With a little faith, your tears turn to ecstasy."

It's hard not to make comparisons to Sia's No. 1 charting song "Cheap Thrills," which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Interestingly, "Crying In The Club" samples Christina Aguilera's "Genie In A Bottle." Xtina's presence is most noticeable when Cami croons the "ah oh ahhs." It's a bit of a stretch, but copyright lawsuits are thrown around left and right these days; better safe than sorry.

Earlier this year, Camila said isn't sure what songs of hers will stick. "I don’t think you can ever tell if a song is going to be a hit," she said. "Maybe some people can but I can just tell when something is special to me and I like it, and then hopefully people feel the same way. I’m sure there are A&Rs and people who do it for a living, but for me, there’s no way to really tell. There’s no formula. If I love it, there’s no risk. If it doesn’t succeed then it doesn’t matter because I love it, and if it does, then, cool.”

Camila makes this her own the best she can. "Crying In The Club" should perform well.
