After announcing her departure from Fifth Harmony in December 2016, things looked rocky for Camila Cabello. Her debut solo single, the rather generic "Crying in the Club," peaked at only No. 47 after its released in May 2017, but when she honed in on her Cuban heritage for the Latin pop track "Havana" in August, she found her sweet spot. The track would eventually reach No. 1 and help refocus writing sessions on her debut album, Camila, which debuted at No. 1 in January 2018 full of Latin-influenced tracks.
By June, "Havana" had become Spotify's most-streamed song ever by a solo female artist with over 888 millions streams at the time. It and "Never Be the Same" made her the first artist to top the Mainstream op 40 and Adult Top 40 airplay charts with the first two singles from a debut album.
The following June, she earned her second No. 1 on the Hot 100 when she and boyfriend Shawn Mendes released "Senorita." Her second LP, 2019's Romance, debuted at No. 3 in December and has already been certified Gold.
