Destination Jam: Top 5 Camila Cabello songs that remind us of singer's brilliance while we wait for new music
After her recent teaser announcement of new music, we are completely struck by Camila Cabello fever today and recall some of her best music. After a long break, Cabello revealed she has "been writing a lot of new music" on Monday, August 10, much to the excitement of eager fans. We also couldn't help but share our glee by featuring her on today's Destination Jam playlist. Check out our top five Camila Cabello songs below.
One of her darker-toned tracks, Cabello's 'Shameless' has continuously risen in popularity since its release in September last year. Currently, at nearly 100 million views, the fiery music video for 'Shameless' has also added to the success of Cabello's step towards a more mature sound. Adopting raw, gritty distorted synth effects and rhythm, the song transitions its vibes from a buildup on the dance floor to a confessional burst of emotion with Cabello antheming, "Right now, I'm shameless. Screamin' my lungs out for ya. Not afraid to face it. I need you more than I want to."
'My Oh My' featuring DaBaby
In 'My Oh My' featuring prominent rapper DaBaby, Cabello once again proves one needs to keep an eye open for her collaborative efforts. In the music video, released in February 2020, we see Cabello portraying an actress who overcame being cast as a damsel in distress with the assistance of an up-and-coming director portrayed by DaBaby.
'My Oh My' peaked at No. 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and reached the top 20 in Australia, Canada, Finland, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. The song was certified platinum by the RIAA in the US and received a gold certification in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
'Señorita' featuring Shawn Mendes
We couldn't help but include Cabello's most famous collaboration 'Señorita' with boyfriend and musical partner Shawn Mendes. This hot track certainly highlights Cabello's Cuban roots with a more intimate take on Latin music. It was also the song that ignited the duo's romance that fans have been unable to forget. If you haven't heard of this multi-platinum number by now, the music video says it all. Watch it below.
'Never Be the Same'
'Never Be the Same' sees the singer showcasing her wide-ranging vocal abilities, transitioning between, low, mid, and high notes with ease. Each pitch change isn't noticed without careful attention, but the result is a style that comes together exquisitely and is a talent Cabello has often been admired for. Unlike the aforementioned tracks that featured on her sophomore album 'Romance', this beautiful song appeared on her self-titled debut LP, released in 2018, and has remained one of her fan-favorite hits to date.
Released to coincide with Father's Day, the emotional music video for 'First Man' features home videos of Cabello with her father, Alejandro. The touching clip shows the father-daughter duo watching old home movies of them growing up together, as Cabello sings, “you were the first man that really loved me” as she reassures her father that she is safe with a new boyfriend. As a pop star, Cabello's sentimental mustering on 'First Man' is a tearjerker. Watch the music video below.
