Ahead of her debut solo album release and Rollacoaster cover next month, Camila Cabello speaks to Wonderland about new tracks, collaborations and her recording process.
 
Camila is currently touring North America with Bruno Mars, opening on his 24k Magic World Tour. In June 2017, Camila was revealed as the face of the GUESS Jeans Fall 2017 advertising campaign; and was just unveiled as the latest L’Oreal Paris spokesperson. 
Last week, Camila released two brand new tracks from her forthcoming album “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving” to be released in September.
“OMG” featuring Quavo, and “Havana” featuring Young Thug are available to download and stream now.
Both songs made it to the Top 10 on US iTunes and just entered the UK Official Trending Chart Top 20.
On her recording process group versus solo:
“In the group we would record songs for two weeks, it was a really fast process, like sometimes we’d do five songs in a day, it would just be like ‘alright you sing the verse, you sing that’, and then you just record it and that’s it, but this has been… Probably because I’ve had a chance to really like, write and make the songs, and be involved in every aspect of it from the production to the mixing. Definitely a lot more challenging but more fun, for sure.”
 
On collaborating with Charli XCX:
“She’s always been so nice to me. Before I met her I think she tweeted about my song “Bad Things” and then she expressed that she really wanted to write with me. Obviously I’m such a huge fan of her, she’s an amazing writer.”
 
On her new track ‘’Havana’’:
“So “Havana” is an idea that I had for a song title; a lot of my songs are more dark and emotional. [This is] more summer, upbeat, it’s very wind-your-waist tempo, if that makes sense
It’s really cool, I did it with Pharrell, it’s like a story of me falling in love with this bad boy from Havana.”
