She did that!
Camila Cabello shared two new songs off The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.
It’s a double feature! Camila premiered two tracks off her forthcoming album today: “OMG” featuring Quavo and “Havana” featuring Young Thug.
They’re both very different from one another. “OMG” is a brooding club track cut from the same cloth as “Crying In The Club.” It’s about admiring a good looking guy. The beat is laced with all sorts of production gymnastics crafted for the club. The pop star co-wrote the track with Charli XCX and enlisted Stargate for the production. “Oh my God, you look today / Back up, back up, back up do it slow-mo,” she sings. “When she drop it, bounce back like a yo-yo.” Quavo, per usual, drops in with an auto-tuned verse.
Camila premiered the tracks on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio show with Zane Lowe. “I just wanted to create a song of my own…that wasn’t, you know, that deep,” she said of “OMG.”
“Havana” is a real gem.
On the Pharrell-produced track, Camila sings about begging an ex-lover to take her back.
“Half of my heart is in Havana,” she croons over a Latin-inspired beat. “He took me back to east Atlanta.” The track is slinky and effortless. It’s also worth mentioning parts of it sound similar to Selena Gomez’s “Same Old Love” (a compliment). Unlike Quavo’s feature in “OMG,” Young Thug actually accentuates the song.
