The wait is over. Camila Cabello’s fans have a date to look forward to for her debut solo album. Camila just finished her album around Thanksgiving, and it’ll be out within a month of the anniversary of her leaving Fifth Harmony.
The immediate aftermath of her departure was hot blooded and it looks like Camila is ready to stoke those flames once again after a cooling off period. She’s now revealed the album’s name, release date and possible cover, along with the names of a few new songs. At least one but possibly both of the new titles sound like jabs at 5H.
“My debut album is finally finished. now i’m trying to steady my heartbeat!!!!!!!” Camila wrote in an Instagram she also shared to Twitter. “thank you for being so patient with me this year, i can’t wait for you to hear what has been the soundtrack to the past year of my 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,” she said. “i decided to call it by my name, 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.”
While Camila didn’t say whose story she meant exactly, the new song titles are setting off shade-o-meters everywhere. One track in particular has fans eager to hear what Camila has to say.
“My album is gonna be available for pre order this Thursday, and i’m putting out two instant grat tracks with it,” Camila revealed. The new tracks will be available as soon as fans pre-order the album. Camila also dished on the song’s names: “One is called never be the same, and one is called real friends.”
Fans are convinced “Real Friends” will give Camila a chance to dish on the nastiness of the 5H breakup. Theories abound about which song on Fifth Harmony’s self-titled release was about Camila. As Camila prepares to drop her own self-titled album on January 12, fans will be eager to hear if “Real Friends” is the hot tea they’ve been waiting for.
