Report: Camila Cabello To Sign With Sony

Published: Saturday 24th Dec 2016 by David

Camila Cabello‘s defection from Fifth Harmony has done little to damage her relationship with bosses at the group’s label Sony Music Entertainment.

In fact, a new report posits that they’re on course to offering her a lucrative solo recording contract.

Good news below…

The entertainer stepped away from the group last week and found herself battling her former bandmates publicly as both sides blamed the other for surprising them with the breakup.

Fortunately, none of this has sullied Simon Cowell’s and Sony’s opinion of Cabello.

The Sun reports:

A source close to Sony said: “Simon really believes in Fifth Harmony going forward and is supportive of everyone involved.

“Simon met the girls on X Factor USA and he gave them the opportunity to be in Fifth Harmony together and the girls in the group appreciate the incredible success they’ve achieved and they have lots of plans for the future together.

“Camila has a very good relationship with both Simon and LA Reid  (who runs Epic Records) and she knows both of them are very supportive and believe in her.”

Moving forward Simon is keen to support all of the girls and it is expected Camila will continue working with Syco and Epic on solo material.

Put simply, Fifth Harmony is to share a label with the ex-member they are now feuding with.

In a statement announcing confirming her departure she revealed:

I was shocked to read the statement the Fifth Harmony account posted without my knowing. The girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much needed conversations about the future that we had during tour. Saying that they were just informed through my representatives that I was ‘leaving the group’ is simply not true. Just like the other girls said in their statement about their plans, I had also planned to continue with my own solo endeavors in the new year but I did not intend to end things with Fifth Harmony this way.


She added:

As sad as it is to see this chapter ending this way, I will continue to root them all on as individuals and as a group, I wish nothing but the best for them, all the success in the world and true happiness.

Her statement came in response to…

You Harmonizers have been there with us since the beginning, you’ve supported us, and with your love and support, we will continue on. That being said, we are excited to announce that we will be moving forward with the four of us- Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui for our fans. We are four strong, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavors.”

We are excited for our future, and we can’t wait for what the new year brings. Harmonizers, we are in this together. We love you with all of our heart.

Can you see Camila soaring under Sony?

    She’ll flop anyways. NEXT.

    • Boosie December 24, 2016

      I know right! Everyone thinks they’re a Beyoncé when they really are Nicole Sherzinger

      • Jasmine December 24, 2016

        Every artist does not want to be Beyonce. Isn’t Beyonce black? I would think a white or hispanic artist would want to be like Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, or Jennifer Lopez since it would be automatic cross-over appeal (larger audience / consumers). Beyonce had to work very hard to get to where she is at because she is black. She had to be a number 1 r&b act (DC was number 1 and her first solo CD was number 1 r&b) before she could cross over. Most non-black artists these days want to get the cross-over appeal instantly so it would not make sense to go r&b first or follow Beyonce.

      • Dev December 25, 2016

        @Jasmine I took this comment as Beyonce being a successful artist out of the group that she was in as apposed to actually being her, and Nicole being the total apposite. Sometimes things are just not that deep

      • Jasmine December 26, 2016

        @Dev I can understand your point of view and I hope that the original person who commented, Boosie, meant it to not be deep. It’s a shame Boosie is not as articulate as you.

      • Nicole >>> Bey >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Rih January 16, 2017

        @boosie I know. Everybody wants to be beyonce, but why? Basic talent, no s** appeal what soever, not beautiful, yells instead of sings, dull, boring, can’t dance, sounds retarded, but still everybody wants to be like her. Beautiful girls finish last, that’s why beyonce is on top. Beyonce is so ugly that when I see her I want to throw up. Her voice is so ugly too, almost as bad as camila’s!

        I feel bad for jay z for having a sh*t wife. Even someone as ugly as Jay Z could do better than beyonshit!

      • Nicole >>> Bey >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Rih January 16, 2017

        Boosie why have you fallen off so much!

        That happy thanksgiving mixtape you dropped was not very good. Ever since you got out of prison your music hasn’t been the same.

        Get back in the studio and make something good!

  2. Jackx December 24, 2016

    sorry i can’t. she should’ve stayed with fifth harmony. She won’t bring nothing to the table that we don’t have in Ariana, Selena, Demi, Taylor, etc.. She doesn’t have star quality to me

    • MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

      She could utilize her latin roots though which sets her apart from the list above. That could work for her favor.

      • Boosie December 24, 2016

        Those vocals are straight up Alvin and not Latin

    • Jasmine December 24, 2016

      There is usually more to stories like that. You act like it is confirmed whether or not she had a choice to stay in the group. For all we know she could have been kicked out or the group got management to do something so that each member could make more money. Having someone leave or be kicked out of the group means the remaining girls will get a little more money.

      • Lucie January 3, 2017

        Lol she wasn’t kicked out. She wanted this so bad you can tell by the way she would get all the solos and hog the spotlight whenever she could. Ah well, all the best to her flailing lop of a solo career.

  3. mar December 24, 2016

    I’m not a fan of the group, but I’ve followed the story, would it make sense that this is only a publicity stunt to cover the fact that the label was going to give her a solo deal anyway? Most times labels don’t just hand out deals unless they really believe in the group member soo maybe it was Sony’s plan for her to go solo to begin with.

    • Mark111 December 24, 2016

      Nothing new here, when Nsync and Destiny’s Child broke up, the solo acts stayed on the same label. It’s sometimes best because the artist already have a fan base and the label already have the connections with radio, press, producers, writers etc.

    • MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

      Yes and no. Unless it was this elaborate, it just seems like this is SUPER messy. I am with you though, not a fan of them but I know their story and like a few songs here and there.

  4. Lana Del Fan December 24, 2016

    My prediction is they’ll kick out ally. Normani Lauren and Dinah will continue. Everyone will sing lead beacuse everyone can now sing. Carmelo will flop and be jealous of the new group. Also, I see normani becoming an rnb act in the fashion of brandy. But she needs to be smart and stay with the group to build her fan base more.

    Tldr Carmelo flops, they drop ally.

    • #ispeakfacts December 24, 2016

      @Lana Del Fan

      Sweetie… Normani is a sweet girl but doesn’t have Brandy vocal talent! She’s a great performer though but she’s needs to work on her singing! She doesn’t even have a huge black following!

      • Boosie December 24, 2016

        I was thinking Justin Skye or that girl from Empire but not brandy.
        It’s pretty much over for 5th Harmony especially since the girls from the show Star will slay with their music from the show

        TGJ do an article please.

      • Lana Del Fan December 24, 2016

        @ispeak. I agree her vocals aren’t as good as brandy. I was saying that she’ll be like brandy as in always Booked years down the line even though she probably won’t be a SUPERSTAR.

  5. DanYiel Iman December 24, 2016

    Yea it’s a NO FOR ME!!!

  6. #ispeakfacts December 24, 2016

    As for Camilla I don’t see her having solo success as 5th Harmony are! They all were all put in a group for a reason!

  7. #ispeakfacts December 24, 2016

    But I will say this… if I was offered a lucrative deal as a solo artist I would take it as well! I just wouldn’t be stupid enough to leave the group that got me where I am! If she was truly smart she would play her cards right and use the group to further her career as Beyonce did! After Bey put out her first solo album and went on tour she rejoined Destinys Child and did another album and tour afterwards she became even bigger! Be smart play chess not checkers!

    • MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

      I agree it was certainly premature of her, but her goal was to do just what you said, she wanted 5H to take hiatus and wait on her solo run, to basically test the waters.

    • Meme December 24, 2016

      The only reason beyonce went back to dc3 was because she had a contract to fulfill. trust and believe she didn’t go back strategically, but in the end it worked out best for her.

      • MusicFan103 December 25, 2016

        @Meme not true because I’m pretty sure DC has another album on their contract STILL! So where that be at sir?

  8. Shakira Stan December 24, 2016

    Since everyone is now predicting her flopping she just might not… A few years ago if anyone told Me Zayn will have a good career,I wouldn’t have believed it.

    • Mark111 December 24, 2016

      But he doesn’t, one hit and a flop album. Sure this track with Taylor is doing well but don’t kid yourself into thinking it’s because of him and not Taylor’s well established fan base.

    • Boosie December 24, 2016

      But Zayn was the best singer and best looking out of the bland group. This chick only stands out for her vocals and not in a good way. No amount of styling and bodysuits are going to make her pop off only generic songs.

      • Kiii December 24, 2016

        Zayn was the best looking but he had the least personality in the group. I’ve seen them perform live and zayn was boring and didn’t engage with the crowd at all. Not fit to be a solo artist. Camilla is fan favorite but outside of that the general public doesn’t particularly care for her so she’ll probably flop

      • Dev December 25, 2016

        @ Kiii I agree but a good song and a poster boy is what people want. If Zayn can put out half decent music and smoulder on a magazine cover with nice clothes and date another celebrity he is pretty much set.

      • Grande the Way December 25, 2016

        Harry is a better singer and more personality imo

  9. Danny Bey December 24, 2016

    If they believed in Carmello so much as a solo artist, then why tf did they put her in a group in the first place when she auditioned as a solo artist? The industry is a shady messy b**** for no reason I tell ya.

    • MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

      I think they are thinking then she was young and her voice wasn’t as mature and that perhaps she to them NOW stood out from the rest, but thats because they placed her in that role. Regardless, she is still IMO weak overall but lets see what they can do. Can they make magic, Hmmm.

  10. We Nowqd Redv dimnobut it ash trjoan ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremxil December 24, 2016

    Good luck to her doing her solo album

  11. Jason December 24, 2016

    Congrats to Sony! You’ve made history by signing a human with the voice of a cat in heat! #bye

    • Boosie December 24, 2016


  12. Thebaddest December 24, 2016

    I agree she maybe ok, I never followed their music but I do know they are the biggest group out at the moment. She does sound like 10 other singers out currently. (Ariana, Khelani, Taylor, demi, etc. So I would do some edgy things for her, like that long hair would need to be cut into a bob, and I would have her work with Dumblonde producers to help cultivate her sound

    • MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

      Yes I agree she def needs an image overhaul. She is really basic in the looks department, just like a cute little girl but nothing really more or s*** about her which is needed for her as a soloist.

      She is def probably going the Pop with a hint of Latin route musically which I assume EDM based due to her vocals.

  13. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? December 24, 2016

    Normani is clearly the Beyoncé of the group.

    • Mark111 December 24, 2016

      The group Foundation (the blend with urban & pop) will work for her the best. They don’t even need to have her cater to Urban radio, just keep it as is with the pop radio and she’ll do fine. Like Beyonce, I can tell this girl is holding back (or the other girls are holding her back).

      • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? December 24, 2016

        WOW, look at me agreeing with you. She’s clearly the most talented one out of the group and with Camilla leaving this is the perfect
        Opportunity for her to start her own solo career. I don’t see much more success for Fourth Harmony TBH. I mean they didn’t have that much to begin with, but now their little fandom has been split with some supporting Camilla and the others supporting the foursome.

    • Bee January 2, 2017

      Normani has no personality, is a ridged dancer and lacks confidence in her vocals. She does not connect with people. She has potential, maybe if she worked with June’s Diaries vocal trainer….. and a personality transplant.

      Camila and Dinah will probably do well as solo artists just due to their ability to connect with people.

  14. Mark111 December 24, 2016

    Of course Sony wants her, she already have two solo top 10s. All they see is numbers. And who is really popping at Epic?

    • MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

      Yeah I couldn’t tell you who is poppin at Epic which is sad bc LA Reid is a legend and makes stars. Do not understand the drought but yeah it makes sense for them to keep her. That way even if she flops it is easier to ask or see if she will go back with 5H.

    • Bee January 2, 2017

      Camila has been courted by T Swifts label for almost 2yrs now, ole dude and Taylor planted the seed. Can’t see her staying with Epic.

  15. MusicFan103 December 24, 2016

    Timing is everything when it comes to success in entertainment. You can have everything it seems necessary for success (Nicole Scherzinger) and if the timing is not meant to be it can scar your whole career.

    She better hope this truly is her time as a soloist. I honestly think a 3rd album with them, she gets a bit older 21/22 would have made more sense for a solo run in say 2018. But I guess she sees her recent solo success with SM and MGK as her intro into it.

    I can’t knock her for trying, but it does seem and give a bad taste in my mouth. Simply because its like many people do not know who they are as 5H yet, let alone able to tell her from the others. Its like she has this background that now she will have to explain in interview after interview and why she departed so soon and abruptly, etc.

    Good luck to SONY, Camila, and the camp behind this mess.

    I am just hoping the fact Simon is fully behind 5H is still true, because they don’t deserve to go out like this.

  16. 87BKrds December 24, 2016

    It was bound to happen, they went in as individuals and they’ll leave as that. 5H was an opportunity for record companies to make money, and will continue once they leave. To anyone trying to make it in the industry, good luck and stay creative!

    • MusicFan103 December 25, 2016

      Yes, true. But not this soon. Look at 1D, they were smart least milked it for 4/5 albums and years before they began splitting and going solo.

  17. Gee December 24, 2016

    Unless the material is under deniably amazing and she can establish herself outside the pop market right now Camilla will see herself on the road to Flop land.

  18. LB December 24, 2016

    What exactly will she bring to the table in a world of Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and where Ariana Taco rules all of them with her golden crown?

    If Sony really want the it girl of Fifth Harmony, Normani is it. She is comfortable enough to step outside the Pop world and venture into the Urban contemporary/ RnB world, and is diverse enough to do pop as well. Sony is betting on the wrong girl.

    • MusicFan103 December 25, 2016

      Sometimes I think Normani gets so much shine because she is the only chocolate skin sister in the group. She is pretty, has body, but I mean I have yet to be wowed by her vocally. I would LOVE to be proved wrong though, but she seems too forgetful beyond her name in a field and sea of black women doing contemporary R&B music.

  19. Sherrele December 24, 2016

    She going solo but can’t sing for s***! The rest of the girls in the group sing way better than her!

  20. Danzou December 25, 2016

    LB swore Camila was the it girl now you’re on Normani team? Anyway, Normani has been playing it smart, y’all just ain’t paying. She’s got videos all over tumblr dancing and performing as well as covers on YouTube. She’s performed to futures music as well with two back up dancers. She needs a team to back her up and PUSH her. I honestly see her taking Beyonce crown when the time is right. It’s between her and Dinah. Lauren will just play the back field because she’s an edgy tumblr girl.

    • MusicFan103 December 26, 2016

      You’re insane. Taking Bey’s spot? I’m not a BeyHive member but that is plain stupid nonsense. I mean not even Rihanna could take her spot, and she is a massive star but isn’t the vocalist or performer which Bey is.

      If someone who has achieved success like Rih isn’t besting Bey, how is Camila going to?

      Camila would be lucky to become Omarion solo success level or even Adrienne Bailon is you consider her becoming a well known name thanks to The Real post 3LW/Cheetah Girls.

  21. Nicole >>> Bey >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Rih January 16, 2017

    Well if beyonce can make it, someone with zero s** apeal, zero star quality, zero beauty and basic talent can make it, than so can this camila, with the right push. Beyonce literally had no star quality before they groomed her. She’s so dull, I still don’t know how she became so huge. She has basic talent, nothing we haven’t seen before. Yells rather than sings. People act like she’s Whitney Houston when really she’s more like rihanna.
