Camila Cabello has been on quite the journey.
Her tenure in Fifth Harmony came to an abrupt end in 2016 and much of last year was spent testing out the solo waters by way of collaborations, buzz tracks, endorsements, and touring.
And then ‘Havana’ happened.
A global smash, the melodic number catapulted Cabello into mass consciousness and put her on a fast-track t0 being a viable star.
It crucially also laid the firmest of foundations for her debut solo debut – which, after a name change, was simply christened ‘Camila.’
Released on January 12th, the LP was tipped for big things. Did it deliver? The answer awaits below…
Following a hard fought battle with the soundtrack for ‘The Great Showman’ (which had been #1 for two weeks) Cabello has come up on top – according to Hits Daily Double.

The feat sees the 20-year-old log her first #1 – not just as a solo act – but as artist overall.
For, the two albums she released as part of Fifth Harmony both debuted within the top 5.
The cherry on top of her success cake looks like it’ll be manifesting in a matter of days, because – fuelled by the sales of the album – ‘Havana’ also is poised to hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 too; an achievement that would see Cabello occupy the top spots on both the single and album tally.
