SINGLE REVIEW: Camila Cabello – Crying In The Club


If you minus Harry Styles out of the equation then Camilla Cabello is the most anticipated debut release of 2017. After leaving Fifth Harmony there has been so many theories about what she would do next or what her solo music would sound like but the time has finally come for her to reveal her solo project. “Crying In The Club” is the official first single from her forthcoming debut album “The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving”. The rhythmic pop track instantly cites influences from Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” and Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” with the beat instrumentation lead by the over played synth that you wish would stop showing up in songs. It’s quickly identifiable that Sia has co-writting credits because Cabello’s vocals mirror how Sia would pronounce particular words and you can’t help but question if this is what the rest of the album is going to sound like or who she really wants to be as an artist. I was surprised that she didn’t ad-lib or have a giant high note in this track because in 5H she was doing it every two seconds to remind everyone she was the strongest vocalist. It kind of became her thing. This song is ridiculously catchy and is made for heavy rotation so radio will no doubt fall in love with it and its empowering message of picking yourself up when you’re in a downfall. However we are all aware that she shines most during ballads so when she drops a heartfelt emotional track I think thats when we are going to meet the real Camila Cabello and I cannot wait.
