Camila Cabello Scores First #1 Of Career On Billboard Hot 100 With ‘Havana’

Published: Monday 22nd Jan 2018 by Sam

Congratulations are in order for Camila Cabello!

For, the Fifth Harmony staple turned solo star has achieved her first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Full story below…

Released last summer as a taste of the singer’s premiere album offering ‘Camila,’ ‘Havana’ peaked last Fall at #2 on the tally. A spot it occupied for seven non-consecutive weeks.

Yet, sales of its housing album, gifted the Pharrell Williams penned track added fuel and helped it turbo charge its way to #1. Marking Cabello’s first time atop of the coveted count.

Indeed, the flavorsome jam amassed the following in the current tracking week: 80,000 US downloads, 44.9 million Stateside streams, and 131 million all-format radio audience impressions.

Cabello now earns the rare honor of simultaneously boasting the #1 single and #1 album in the US. 

It goes without saying that if there lay any doubt about her clout as a solo force, it’s been dispelled and then some.

Fun fact: ‘Havana’ now equals Sia’s ‘Cheap Thrills’ as the longest time taken for a song by a female to hit #1 – at 23 weeks.

      I like her but the album is boring AF

    Pharrell is actually a co-writer on Havana. Camila is the lead writer and created the concept of Havana which she started in a note on her phone 🙂

  5. Fancy BISH January 22, 2018

    Of all The chart accomplishments, having a #1 album and a #1 single in the same week just looks so dope…especially when that #1 is your first album! Congrats all around! I definitely was one of the naysayers when she up and left 4th Harmony…but she just did what formerly 5th Harmony never did which is to have a #1 album and a #1 single! I officially retire Camila Cobweb lol…from now on I’ll throw some respek on her name ??

    • Meme January 22, 2018

      Much respect for your comment. Because half of the haters here quickly forget the comments made a few months ago that her solo career could never happen.

      • Fancy BISH January 22, 2018

        I can admit when I’m wrong, and I was wrong about Camila Knowles lol…the last person to have a #1 album and single as a soloist was Beyoncé so she definitely is the Beyoncé of the damn group honestly! And she just matched Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time chart achievement so oops! Homegirl just cemented herself a spot beside some serious women!

  6. Suicide Blonde January 22, 2018

    • BeyKnowlesBest January 22, 2018

      Face it she appeals to the face of America right now…” the dreamers” I believe they call them

    • ABC February 6, 2018

      She appeals to the fake “white” latin demographic who claim the struggle but can afford to pass as white in society.

  7. Meme January 22, 2018

    And that my friends is how it’s done! #1 single and #1 album. Something a very select group of new artist do.

    • Fancy BISH January 22, 2018

      Not too many people have that *Mimi voice* lol ?

      • Señorita July 22, 2021

  8. MessyJessy January 22, 2018

    Soooooo happy for her!!!!! Fifth Harmony is SEETHING right now in a corner. The chubby latina is eating herself to a grave.

    • Jamie January 22, 2018

      They say misery loves company and just because yo fat asz have diabetes and hypercholesterolima doesn’t mean everybody else does.

    • iamdiego January 22, 2018

      she’s not chubby anymore. 5h aint bothered

  9. BeyKnowlesBest January 22, 2018

    Where is Ariana Grande when u need her

  10. Haters Gon’ Hate January 22, 2018

    And this is what happens when you match a HIT with Promo and a strong Marketing campaign. It’s a great way to start your career – but for her sake – I really hope she’s got enough substance to keep people interested – because these kids are FICKLE and will dash her a** to the kerb when the next shiny crayon comes along. ?????

  11. Jeans January 22, 2018

    So happy for her. Love this girl!!!

  13. Datredd23 January 22, 2018

    Rihanna and Adele are the only female artists to do it twice with two albums!!!

    • Meme January 22, 2018

      Elaborate. You mean they are the 2 females to have a #1 album and #1 single twice? I don’t think that’s correct.

      • Datredd23 January 22, 2018

        Do the research hun

  14. DanYiel Iman January 22, 2018

    IMO her voice isn’t the best, I purchased Havana & that’s it!!

  15. Mariah Carey January 23, 2018

    Congratulations Miss Camila dahhling!

  16. Caleb January 23, 2018

    It really makes me feel some type of way that Young Thug now has a #1 on the billboard hot 100 but Nicki doesn’t. ?

  17. Julian January 25, 2018

    I didn’t think they could do it, but they really actually made that girl a solo popstar. Damn, mediocrity always wins in this industry.
