Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao (/kəˈmiːlə kəˈbeɪoʊ/; <small>Spanish: </small>[kaˈmila kaˈbeʎo]; born March 3, 1997) is a Cuban-American singer and songwriter. She was a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony, which was formed during the second season of The X Factor US in 2012, and thereafter signed to a joint record deal with Syco Music and Epic Records for their music releases.
Cabello began to establish herself as a solo artist with the release of several collaborations, including "Bad Things" with Machine Gun Kelly, which reached number four on the US Billboard Hot 100. After leaving Fifth Harmony in December 2016, she released the solo single "Crying in the Club" to a modest performance. Refocusing her sound to Latin-influenced music, her eponymous debut studio album Camila (2018) debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, with its lead single "Havana" topping the charts in several countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States.
The album was certified gold in the country, while "Never Be the Same" was released as the second single, later becoming her third top 10 entry on the Hot 100. In April 2018, Cabello embarked on the Never Be The Same Tour, her first as a solo artist. She will be the opening act for Taylor Swift's Reputation Tour in between the European leg of the Never Be the Same Tour.
