CAMILA CABELLO COVERS “DESPACITO” ON CAPITAL BREAKFAST WITH ROMAN KEMP
DISCUSSES WRITING WITH ED SHEERAN
DEBUT SINGLE “CRYING IN THE CLUB” CLIMBS TO #23 ON OFFICIAL UK SINGLES CHART
Camila Cabello showed off her skills of singing in Spanish to cover Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito” on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, watch here. In the radio interview, aired this morning, Camila discussed writing a song for debut studio album “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving” with Ed Sheeran.
Camila said: 'I was telling him how my album was going, and he sent me this song that he had written with me in mind called "Care About Me". I went in and changed a lot of lyrics to just make it more about myself and tied it into a personal situation. It’s called "The Boy” now. It is insane that I have a song with him that I’m working on because everybody knows, including him, that I’m the biggest Ed Sheeran fan ever.'
Ed Sheeran joins a bevy of heavy hitters such as Pharrell, Frank Dukes, Charli XCX, Ryan Tedder, MXM, Diplo, Benny Blanco, Sia, and Stargate who have helped contribute to “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving.” Camila has written or co-written every song on the album, due in September.
Camila also recently spoke to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe about other collaborations on her album.
On collaborating with Charli XCX on the song “Scar Tissue”: 'She’s incredible. She just has the best melodies that I’ve ever heard. I really want to collaborate with her so much more. We clicked.’
On collaborating with Pharrell: 'He’s amazing. Just being around that calibre is so inspiring. Just the way that he takes artistry super seriously and everything has a purpose.'
On collaborating with Ryan Tedder: 'We did two songs together. I felt just super unafraid to be just super emotional, to be unfiltered. Writing with Ryan was amazing. We want to do a bunch more.'
The debut single “Crying In The Club,” which Camila co-wrote with Sia and Benny Blanco, has climbed on the Official UK Singles Chart every week since its release in May. It currently stands at #23, moving up to the B List of BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, and Kiss FM.
