Back in May Camila Cabello announced her debut solo album would be called The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving, but as the year progressed she felt less and less that the title reflected the music she was making.
So she announced last month she was scrapping it.
And now she has revealed its new title and release date. It’ll simply be called Camila and she explained on Instagram:
“I decided to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended. it started with somebody else's story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself. ”
See the full post below:
