Camila Cabello Gets Candid About Her Dramatic Split From Fifth Harmony

It seems like Camila Cabello's record label didn't actually have a lot of faith in her breakout hit, "Havana".

"Accomplishments are never the important part, getting to make music and do what I love every day is really the reward, but I know how hard u guys go for me and I really appreciate anybody who's ever believed and supported me on this journey so far", she added, while thanking those who stood by her side.

"Havana" also topped the charts in the United Kingdom and Australia and total Spotify streams have surpassed 545 million, while its official music video has exceeded 500 million hits on YouTube and Vevo.

The singer said it soon became clear that she couldn't balance her solo endeavours whilst remaining in the group, and made the hard decision to break away from the band to pursue her dreams. The single is also the longest song to top the pop charts since Taylor Swift's smash hit "I Knew You Were Trouble".

She told The NYT that she ultimately made a decision to go solo because Fifth Harmony wouldn't let her work on solo music while still being part of the group. It'd be interesting to hear that version of an album that's clearly been through a lot of tinkering and sequencing, especially if some of what got chucked was more autobiographical about her recent career turns.
