Previously, Camila Cabello announced that her debut solo album would be called ‘The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.’ However, Camila later scrapped the album title, when she had a change of heart.
“I’m not ready to talk about why yet. I always wanted my fans to be the first to know about those kind of things” Camila has recently said in an interview. “I’m going to write a letter… and stuff. It’s complicated, but it’s going to be great.”
Camila came up with the first title when she was in a different headspace, but now she is in a much happier place and has explained today the reason for her album title change.
In an Instagram post Camila said:
“To my Camilizers… my debut album is finally finished. now I’m trying to steady my heartbeat!!!!!!! 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… 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. my album is gonna be available for pre order this Thursday, and I’m putting out two instant grat tracks with it… one is called never be the same, and one is called real friends. it’s in your hands January 12 ? love you guys so much, Camila”
You read correctly… ‘Camila’ is released January 12th, 2018! And not only has she treated us with a release date, she also treated us to the album cover! Are you ready to see it?
What a beautiful masterpiece that is! We are absolutely ecstatic about the news and are filled with so much joy over how soon we’re actually going to be able to listen to this entire album!!

I cannot wait for this album #CAMILA …. I can’t wait to hold it in my hands. To have it on repeat. To cry. To smile. To feel so proud. To turn it up loudly and sing along to every word of the songs. I just cannot wait to finally hear Camila’s first album. #CAMILAoutJANUARY12
