Camila Cabello: 'I found out Havana had reached No.1 when I was at home and we all went crazy'
Camila Cabello picked up her Official No.1 Award at last night's Music Industry Trusts ceremony last night (November 6)
Camila Cabello celebrated her latest single "Havana" going to Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart at last night’s Music Industry Trusts Award (Nov 6).
The singer picked up her Official Number 1 Award at last night's ceremony, which took place in London's Grosvenor House Hotel.
Camila also performed the chart-topping track along with new song "Never Be The Same" at this year's event, which saw her label boss Simon Cowell in attendance alongside the likes of Mark Ronson, Paloma Faith, Manic Street Preachers and London Grammar.
Camila told Official Charts:
"Oh my god... I'm beyond over the moon. I'm so happy. I'm so excited! I'll definitely be celebrating with my team. Right now, I'm getting ready backstage to do a performance, but whenever we find out amazing news like this we definitely flap - we scream!
“I found out Havana had reached Number 1 a couple of days ago when I was at home with my family and we all went crazy. You have to celebrate things like this because you never know if it's going to happen again. My mum screamed. My dad doesn't scream, but there were hugs - and maybe a small scream from him in a masculine, fatherly way."
Havana is on course for a second week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, fending off competition from Post Malone’s Rockstar and Rita Ora’s Anywhere. Camila’s debut album is expected to be released in early 2018.
Listen to the Official Chart Top 40 countdown on Friday from 4pm on BBC Radio 1, with the full Top 100 revealed on OfficialCharts.com from 6pm.
