In our countdown of the top ten Camila Cabello songs, we look at Cabello’s incredible solo career since her departure from Fifth Harmony. The talented singer was born in Havana, Cuba, before she and her mum immigrated to the US when she was six years old. Her music career started with a YouTube channel where she did covers before she auditioned at X-Factor. She rose to fame with Fifth Harmony on X Factor, where they were mentored by Simon Cowell till the finals of the show, where they finished in the third position. The group had a successful few years and released some great hits such as “Work From Home,” which won them a VMA in 2016. At the end of 2016, Cabello left Fifth Harmony and had one of the most successful launches of a solo career with a collaboration with Pitbull for the song, “Hey Ma.” Below are the top ten Camila Cabello songs.
The number ten song in our list of the top ten Camila Cabello songs has a bizarre video that you will absolutely love. The song, which is all about being so in love with someone but still denying it, features Cabello, who further expresses those feelings. In the video, she is engaged to the son of an oil magnate, but she crushes on a busboy she finds at a restaurant. Towards the end of the video, Cabello and the busboy end up together. According to sources, the song was inspired by her romantic relationship with Shawn Mendes.
9. Cry For Me
The number nine Camila Cabello song on our list sees the singer send a vicious message to her ex. In the song, Camila Cabello isn’t afraid to express her rage, and you can feel it by the way she sings, saying, “I want you to cry for me, cry for me.” The song also happens to be her favorite from the album.
8. I Have Questions
The number eight song on our list was written by Camila Cabello while she was on tour with her former group, Fifth Harmony. The song was initially written to be on her debut album, although it didn’t make the final cut after the album’s re-imagination. However, the song was featured in the intro of the music video for her debut single, “Crying in the Club.” In the song, Camila Cabello questions her relationship with her former friends, which was unhealthy since they did a lot of harm to her.
7. Bad Things ft Machine Gun Kelly
In this song, Camila Cabello teams up with Machine Gun Kelly in a song that was produced by The Futuristics. This mid-tempo ballad interpolates Fastball’s 1998 single, “Out Of My Head,” and talks about a relationship that is full of pain and pleasure. The song highlights Cabello’s magnificent vocals as Machine Gun Kelly shows us his softer side. The song peaked at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 and won the duo an award at the Radio Disney Music Awards in 2017.
The number six song on our countdown of the best Camila Cabello songs is a club-friendly banger that features guest vocals from Quavo. The song has a trap beat and an appealing chorus by Camila Cabello in which she sings, “Oh my God! You look good today.”. The song features verses where Cabello talks about coming from Miami and causing trouble in L.A.
5. Crying In The Club
Coming in at number five is one of Camila Cabello’s most underrated songs, “Crying in the Club,” which is also her debut single since she went solo. The song is quite uplifting and can be useful anytime you feel down. The song features an interpolation from Christina Aguilera’s 1999 song, “Genie in a Bottle,” and has a dancehall-inspired beat with Camila Cabello’s voice spanning from a low note to a high note. The song marked a wonderful debut to her solo career and showed that Camila could make it as a solo artist.
4. I Know What You Did Last Summer
When I first saw a snippet of the video to this duet in which Cabello features Shawn Mendes, I was already yearning to see the whole video of the song. The video features Cabello in a dark landscape as she appears to move towards Shawn Mendes, although she isn’t moving in a real sense. The song sees the duo put their relationship to test as the video culminates in the duo having a soaking wet standoff as they try to repair their relationship. The song is beautiful, and their voices are silky and smooth as ever.
3. Senorita ft. Shawn Mendes
Coming in at number three is another song in which Cabello features her ex-boyfriend Shawn Mendes. The song, which has accumulated over one billion views, never gets old and has been certified multi-platinum in thirteen countries. The song is a Latin pop song that is fun and remarkable. The track was ranked as Malaysia’s biggest song of 2019 and was the third highest-selling single of 2019, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).
2. Never Be The Same
The number two song on our countdown of the top ten Camila Cabello songs is my personal favorite on her debut album, Camila. The song was initially titled “Nicotine” and was inspired by Camila Cabello’s relationship a few years back. The song peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100, and Camila Cabello considers it as the best song she has ever written, even though it took one hour to write it.
“Havana” is arguably Camila Cabello’s biggest hit to date. The sultry and bouncy song features guest vocals from Young Thug and is contained in Camila’s debut album, Camila (2018). The song was initially released as a promotional single, but it became the album’s lead single due to its popularity, replacing “Crying in the Club.” Cabello’s layered vocals in the song are magnificent, and Young Thug’s presence makes this song incredible to listen to any time.
