Camila Cabello‘s bid for solo stardom received a seismic boost today, because TIME Magazine have just bestowed upon her a major honor.
The publication has named the Pop starlet as one of The Next 100 Most Influential People.
Explaining the tally, TIME Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal said:
“When we first published our TIME 100 list of the world’s most influential people 15 years ago, it was dominated by individuals who rose through traditional power structures: heads of state, CEOs of public companies, actors from big-budget blockbusters, leaders of global foundations. What has been striking about more recent editions is the growing number of individuals who did not need an establishment to command international attention—people like the Parkland, Fla., students (in 2018) and Greta Thunberg (in 2019). TIME has always been a barometer of influence—and the nature of influence is changing.”
Renown Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz profiled Cabello writing:
“Camila Cabello is a pure and magnetic artist… In times like these, when noise can distort the purity of an artist’s message, Camila has managed to honor her story and her background in an authentic way with her pop music. The impact of her songs—from ‘Havana’ and ‘Señorita’ to ‘Shameless’ and ‘Liar’—has opened the door so that the world can see and hear the massive potential of the Latin music community. The privilege of being her friend is an inspiring gift.”
The salute comes on the heels of Cabello’s ‘Romance’ album and tour announcement.
