A look at Camila Cabello's success as the AMAs approach
The countdown until Camila Cabello's American Music Awards performance is now on, with one of the biggest musical events of the year set to take place tomorrow (October 9) in Los Angeles.
Let's take a look at the extraordinary year the Havana queen has had so far.
Cuban born singer-songwriter Cabello (Epic Records / SYCO) released her debut solo album, Camila, in January 2018 to rave reviews.
It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart at the same time as her single Havana reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This made the young star the first solo artist in nearly 15 years to hold the #1 spot on both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts simultaneously with a first #1.
The RIAA gold-certified album launched its debut at #1 on over 100 iTunes charts around the world, breaking the record for most #1 positions for a debut album in iTunes history.
Beginning her official solo career after four years in Fifth Harmony, Cabello released her RIAA triple-platinum smash hit Havana in August 2017, where it obtained the #1 spot on Billboard’s Pop Songs airplay chart, marking her second #1 as a solo artist.
Furthermore, Havana hit #1 on iTunes overall top songs chart, #2 on the Spotify Global chart and hit #1 in 80 countries around the world.
Havana is the first song by a female artist to reach #1 on Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs, Pop Songs, and Rhythmic Songs airplay charts in 22 year. The track recently crossed 765 million cumulative streams, and attained the longest run at #1 on the Pop Songs chart by a female artist in a lead role in nearly five years.
Her next single, Never Be The Same, was released in January 2018 and peaked in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, plus she had already earned a chart-topping smash with her recent double platinum-certified hit Bad Things, with MGK. The track generated over 240 million Spotify streams.
Not only is Cabello set to perform at tomorrow night's American Music Awards, but she is also up for 5 awards and could win her first as a solo artist, which makes tomorrow one of the most exciting nights for both Camilizers and the music star alike.
