the first song from my forthcoming album “the hurting the healing the loving” will come out on 5.19.17…. “the hurting the healing the loving” is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when i was lost to a time when i found myself again. The story behind the album starts with the second song that you’ll hear called “I have questions” which I started writing in a hotel bathroom on tour a little over a year ago. i was completely broken during that time, i was in the kind of pain that’s uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud…. i couldn’t write another song for 6 months because writing meant i had to feel everything, and i wasn’t ready to do that yet. so when i graduated from hotel bathrooms to studios to make my first album, i was making music about everything BUT what i was going through, it was like a secret burning on my tongue and for some reason i could not get myself to say it…….

Camila co-wrote “Crying in the Club” with Sia and it was produced by Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran). Driven by her powerhouse voice and irresistible charisma, “Crying in the Club” sports a hashtag-worthy hook “crying in the club.”Not only is it bound to be one of the summer’s biggest songs, but it also introduces this multi-talented artist’s next chapter.
