Camila Cabello’s ‘Romance’ Debuts At #14 On UK Album Chart

Published: Saturday 14th Dec 2019 by Sam

After a valiant effort, it looks like Camila Cabello is on-course to open within the upper echelon of the US album count with sophomore set ‘Romance.’

However, in the UK – traditionally a strong market for the singer – she’s having no such luck.

Full story below…

With the numbers counted and verified, the LP has entered the Official UK Album Chart at #14. 

And while it bested the debut of fellow Pop band member Liam Payne (whose ‘LP1’ opened at #17), it has to come as a blow to all involved.

For, having nabbed UK #1’s with both ‘Havana’ and ‘Senorita’ in relatively close succession, the assumption was that Cabello possessed the chart clout to deliver a top-selling album too.

And even still, she didn’t rest on her laurels. For, she pounded the promotional pavement by appearing on a number of high-profile shows and magazines.

But, alas, it was to little avail.

What do you think the disconnect is? Let us know…

      Omg ? omg ?

      It looks bad on her!

      Even Tinashe won’t do that kind of gig
      Not even Shareefa nor Azelia Banks

      • Fancy BISH December 14, 2019

        Not Shareefa chile ?

      • D December 14, 2019

        Shareefa!!!!!! ???????
        “I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I, I be lovin it” ?

    • No Glory December 14, 2019

      That’s not a good look. I respect her for going after her bag though.

      • yo December 14, 2019


      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019


        Charity event my àss

        That us normani performing her top ten hit at a run down McDonald’s cause she needs the money

        Even azealia banks cant take this gig

        This is not the first time she’s taking a tacky gig for money

        Remember she did dancing with the stars, a show for washed up celebrities like honey boo boo and donald trump former press secretary shawn spicer ??????. And she didnt even win. And you guys always hype her dancing.

        Then that fenty ambassador gig
        Wearing strìpper underwear, looking cheap

        How much do u think rihanna paid her to strip? 30k or 40k.

    • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

      Even azealia banks wont perform at a run down McDonald’s.

      Look at that stage.
      She need the money
      Normani net worth is 3 million

      Apart from love lies, all her other songs she didnt write any of them that’s why her name is always last on the song writes credit list.
      She contributed little to the song.

      Dancing with a stranger, her name is credited last
      Motivation, her name Is credited last.

      Bìtch cant write a hit.

      • Lanafan1 December 14, 2019

        This is your defense for your fave flopping? ???

      • You Tried December 14, 2019

        Lol you don’t even have a hundred dollars and you’re making up numbers to insult someone. You’re a loser Camila didn’t debut at #1 like you said pls explain

    • Gworl Bye December 14, 2019

      But your fave is still a global flop, so what’s the point of even bringing up somebody else lol ???‍♂️

  1. Only facts December 14, 2019

    An absolute kii. Even after that garage sale. The label is pissed I’m sure after all the money they just lost on this broad. When does the tour cancellation get announced? And #3 in the US behind an unknown rapper that did ZERO promo?

    • I know December 14, 2019

      Chile, with a bundle, 5 album covers and a bundle, she only scanned 45k in the US and the additional 35k came from streams. She even included Senorita on it, and that couldn’t save this travesty. What a way to end the year on a high note! ???. #weluv2seeit

      • HavanaONana December 15, 2019

        The funny part is that Camila is rich as fack and you And the other haters remain broke until now

        CamilLa always has the last laugh

  2. No Glory December 14, 2019


  3. Only facts December 14, 2019

    Overexposed. And she’s not a star. Everything about her comes off ass unauthentic, and desperate. She’s not a main pop girl. Never will be. Streams for two songs means that people like those two songs…not you girl. Return to sender.

    • No Glory December 14, 2019

      Debuting at number 14 isn’t a good look for someone who apparently is being force fed to the population. LOL WESTLIFE OUTPERFORMED HER ON THE CHARTS. AND I HAVEN’T BEING SEEING ANYTHING ABOUT THEM

    • At December 23, 2019

      She’s kind of been a main pop girl ever since her debut and especially Havana duh literally she is up there with Selena and Ariana and Demi lol you are just mad bro.

  4. Shhh December 14, 2019

    Finally some good news

    • Oh plz December 14, 2019

      Yup! Christmas came early!! ? ?

  5. Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

    They are deleting my comments

    They are blocking me from commenting


    • No Glory December 14, 2019

      For what? It’s not that serious for them to delete comments. We’re all here to voice our opinions.

    • Oh plz December 14, 2019

      STFU, loser. This is the ultimate payback for your incessant trolling. Now we can finally leave you and Flopmila in 2019. Merry Christmas, h**.

      • Danny Bey December 14, 2019

        “Merry Christmas h*e” ???????

  6. HavanaONana December 14, 2019

    I think the disconnect of Camila is that she is becoming like Rihanna releasing singles after singles That are not sticking to GP except Señiorita

    Also the leak of her album weeks ago

    The album was released when Señorita is descending down the lower parts of the charts

    Bad management by her manager

    Normani stands sabotaged her Q&A

    Her streaming points are weaker than the new rapper

    But she will build momentum in this album and definitely still gets a platinum certification

    • Only facts December 14, 2019

      Excuses excuses. The singles all flopped well before the leak girl

      • HavanaONana December 14, 2019

        Well I think when “My Oh My” build the sales, airplay and momentum the album sales will definitely elevate except the she has to face Harry Styles next week.

    • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

      Liar- gold (180 million streams, has more streams that normani motivation. ). A flop single did that.

      Shameless- gold(has more YouTube views than normani motivation) a flop single did that

      Cry for me- gold


      my oh my- 12 million streams . An album track that was released 7 days ago did that.

      Camila flops more successful than normani’s biggest hits.

    • Meme December 14, 2019

      Rihanna? No sweetie. All of Rihanna singles stick. When she released those 3 single trying to find a lead for Anti (4 5 seconds, American dream, BBHMM) the only single that didn’t do well was American dream. Every other Anti single was a hit. Even S*x with me that wasn’t officially released did big numbers so let’s not.

      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

        Rihanna’s first 6 album didnt hit number 1 after scoring massive hits like we found love, umbrella, what’s my name, rude vou, to name a few.

        Her 1st number one album was her 7th studio album unapologetic and she had to discount it the day after release.

        Pls be quite.

      • Meme December 14, 2019

        Clarkeson who cares about an album not debuting at number one when the album has multiple #1 singles and goes multiple platinum? That’s the thing, y’all worried about first week and after that nothing…album is dead and never hear from again. All of Rihanna albums age well….her album stay chatted for years with singles performing for years.

      • only facts December 14, 2019

        PREACH MEME! Some people don’t understand the meaning of it’s a marathon not a race.

      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

        And that Is exactly what Camila cabello romance will do.

        The album will age well. It already has 1.4 billion streams

        The album already has a massive hit single on it.

        Camila debut album has aged well also with

        ‘CAMILA’ (Album) — Archievements:

        • 5,000,0000 units sold worldwide
        • 5 BILLION worldwide audio streams
        • 3,5 BILLION worldwide video streams

        So yes its truly a marathon not a race.

        Normani will never see this kind of numbers that’s a fact.

      • Oh plz December 14, 2019

        Age well??? Lies and deception. The album is currently # 9 on US iTunes and falling fast. The Christmas season is the time where consumers are BUYING. If ITunes is any indication,No-Mance and Flopmila are not on peoples’ mind and will not have longevity. Sit and spin, h**.

      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

        And where is roddy ricch on the iTunes charts?

        Roddy rich didnt even hit the top 5 on itunes

        As I said earlier the album is already a sucess and is gonna age well

        Number 3 on the list of most discussed albums of 2019.
        They hate to see it

      • Paulo December 14, 2019

        Yaaasss Meme gather these crows! Get them together ? Rihanna never sweat her lack of #1s on the Hot 200 cause the sales were there and waited patiently for those #1s to come. Really no comparison to be made here

      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

        Camila ain’t sweating either

        Camila already has a number one album. Her debut
        Something rihanna couldn’t achieve
        It took rihanna 6 whole albums before she scored a number 1 album. How sad is that

    • PinotNoir December 14, 2019

      ? Shawn better flex that bootyhole … his señorita’s label heads want their money back, head or tail.

    • PinotNoir December 14, 2019

      My opinion? Her album is too summery for a winter release. Akin to releasing a Christmas album on July 4 — bound to disconnect with the buying public. I feel she has no interesting story to tell.

  7. Only facts December 14, 2019

    Camila, you’ve boxed yourself in so early in your career. All the GP wants is a Latin flavored song with a male feature. The fact that the label cut the album price on half and spent millions on promo (even hiring that damn choir to perform with you) means they lost MILLIONS on you. You will either get dropped after this OR epic records will treat you how they currently treat Meghan Trainor and not promote anything else you do (poor Meghan)

    • yo December 14, 2019

      this is spot on

    • PinotNoir December 14, 2019

      Or Shawn could always save his señorita by paying back her album advance with his body. Remember pix of Bieber in the buff on a private island with that older guy in a bathrobe?

  8. Sashayyy Okayyy December 14, 2019

    Not gonna lie, I streamed Roddy Rich specifically to make sure he out charted her…his album is good and I would’ve never heard of him otherwise. So really, Camilas antics caused great promo for Roddy ????????

    • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

      Dumb àss

      Roddy ricch debuted at number 39

      Camila outpeaked him in the uk

      • HavanaONana December 14, 2019

        Exactly Rody is a flop he only sold 2k of physical sales in US. He cheated his streaming points. His label lost a lot of money on him. Lol

      • Sashayyy Okayyy December 14, 2019

        Honey, Roddy is #1 in the US and the US is the largest music market. If you read my comment, I said this was good promo for Roddy since SEVERAL people streamed him and didn’t know who he was beforehand like myself. You just try to fight for no reason.

      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

        Bìtch I can tell u listen to only beyonce and Rihanna

        Roddy rich is nipsey hussel protege
        He is popular as f**** amongst rap fans.
        And rapper fans are the biggest buyers of music

        I’m just happy Camila outpeaked xxxtentacion
        A top 3 debut in the US for an album with no hits that was leaked is impressive

        Besides the album is already a sucess
        Eligible for gold
        1.4 billion streams

        All those songs u guys called flops are already successful

        Liar- gold (180 million streams, has more streams that normani motivation. )???. A flop single did that.
        Shameless- gold(has more YouTube views than normani motivation) a flop single did that
        Cry for me- gold

        Camila flops more successful than normani’s biggest hits.

      • At December 23, 2019

        Lol dude she flopped everywhere but Canada get a life. You’ll still live and you seriously comparing Camila to Rihanna ???????? even without her albums going number one they still had multiple more number ones than Camila ever did. You are a very sad and pathetic no life person behind a computer. Hey a life

    • HavanaONana December 14, 2019

      According to Rolling Stone Album 200, The Who is the #1 album in US outselling Roddy

      • You Tried December 14, 2019

        Clarkson and you’re other account Havana, if Camila has been so successful this era and you are glad that she debuted a #3 album, then stfu!!! That’s how you know you and your multiple accounts are pressed cause you keep saying the same thing over and over. You’re pressed and stressed henny. Just shut it if you’re happy with the outcome

  9. Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019


    TGJ doesnt want me to speak.

    Deleting my comments.

    They are scared of hearing the truth.

    For an album that leaked, a top 20 debut is very impressive
    Everybody who released albums in the uk underperformed . Its Christmas season, everybody is buying Christmas music not pop album
    Camila outpeaked almost every big name who released albums this week expect legendary band the who (debut at number 3)

    Roddy rich-39
    Liam Payne from one direction -17
    Xxxtentacion- 53
    French Montana- didnt chart in the top 100
    Fat joe- didn’t chart in the top 100

    • No Glory December 14, 2019

      lil wayne sold 1.5 million albums his first week after being heavily leaked over 1,000,00+ times

      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

        Bìtch lil wayne is an established rapper,
        Who has been in the game for years. Mainstream and underground fan base

        Camila solo career is only 2 years old.

        How can u compare a rapper with a pop star who has a 2 year old solo career

        Rap fans are the major music buyers.

        Even beyonce and Rihanna have never sold 1 million copies first week.

        Camila’s achievements in under 2 years is fùcking impressive
        2 number one songs
        1 number one album certified platinum
        1 top 3 album certified gold, will be certified platinum in some few months time. 1.4 billion streams
        3 Grammy nominations
        First and only female artist to have 2 songs with 1 billion streams each

      • real talk December 14, 2019

        Clarkcoon my issue with you is that you bring up other artist to try prove your point. Boy if you dont stfu

        BEYONCE (self-titled) reciepts

        – During its first day of release (on a Friday) in the United States, Beyoncé SOLD 80,000 units in three hours (streams not included) CAMILO COULDNT SALE MORE THAN 45K IN A WEEK

        – Sold total of 430,000 digital copies within 24 hours. HAS CAMILO SOLD THAT MUCH WITH HER FIRST ALBUM YET (SALES NOT STREAMS)?

        -In its second day, the album sold 120,000 units, which brought its two-day sales total to 550,000. Once again, Beyonce sold more in day 2 (on a Saturday) than Camilo’s Best first week debut without streams or “a hit”

        -By the third day the album had sold 617,000 in the US alone and still went #1. Remind you only with three days of tracking.

        – She was the first artist of this decade to do to sell over 300,000 3 weeks straight after the albums release. No major drops off the chart until the rules changed as far as streams counting towards albums.


        (3 days of tracking) Week 1 – 617,000
        Week 2 – 374,000
        Week 3 – 310,000

        Then only performed at 3 award shows that whole yr. the Grammy’s, the Brit’s and the MTV awards.


      • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

        Beyonce a bigger artist than Camila
        Beyonce solo career older than Camila solo career
        Self titled is beyonce 5th album
        Romance is Camila second album

        besides self titled didnt have any number one, the most successful song on self titled was drunk in love, a feature and it stalled at number two.
        Senorita hit number one.


    • Lanafan1 December 14, 2019

      They’re scared of reading your manic comments.

    • PinotNoir December 14, 2019

      They’re not scared. Just fed up. We all are.

    • I know December 14, 2019

      No boo, they are laughing at her. That’s the only discussion. It’s bad when no one streams or buys your new music. Save face and take this L and stfu!!!

      • Sashayyy Okayyy December 14, 2019

        Facts dont lie

        They are laughing at Camila and they are still discussing about her, she still on their minds, that’s why her album is in the top ten of most discussed albums of 2019.

        Thanks for the free publicity

      ??????? chihuahua. The peasants cried!

  12. Sweetnothings78 December 14, 2019

    Overhyped beyond belief. Forgettable music.

    Keeping my bets she will be forgotten in a year (less than that now). AFTER a reunion with that band she was with.

    She’s a girl group member. Morning more nothing less.
    She’s not even pretty enough to do a Ciara and remain relevant for being beautiful…

    Bye girl and take Norman with you.

    • Clarks0oñ December 14, 2019

      “Keeping my bets she will be forgotten in a year (less than that now). ”

      U people say this every year.
      U said it last year but Camila scored a second number one song

      2020 Camila probably gonna score another number one with my oh my feat da baby.
      The song already has 12 million streams

      Its Christmas season, Christmas music is hot right now, so her team has started promoting this song.

      Once Christmas season is over, they are gonna push this song the same way they pushed Havana

      Get ready. Another hit in 2020
      Camila isnt going anywhere.

      • Queen Mimi December 14, 2019

        After all those tragic number. U think Epic gonna waste even more money on her.. They would never recouped all of their investment on Romance so far.. They better of call it off n save the fund for the next album..

    • PinotNoir December 14, 2019

      I can see that happening.

  13. Nicky December 14, 2019

    All I can say is………


    She’s not a star. All that UK promo still flopped


    Us tour will be canceled.

    ???? adding Seniorita last minute was smoke and mirrors. The songs are tanking

    • PinotNoir December 14, 2019

      She used Shawn as a rebound after her breakup with the Brit “love” coach. I wonder to what she’ll resort after her sophomore slump.

  14. truthteller December 14, 2019

    #55 in Germany, #44 in Italy and #35 in Japan. In comparison, Camila debuted at #8 in Germany, #8 in Italy and #15 in Japan. I think this what we call a sophomore slump

    • Queen Mimi December 14, 2019

      Ouchh.. I tot Clarkson said Camilla is a streaming GIANT ???.. Guess the standard is low now to be called Streaming Giant.. Taylor & Selena would never do those tragic number

  15. Queen Mimi December 14, 2019

    LoL.. All the millions EPIC throwing to book all the promos just to have it sold less thn 100k in US n top 20 debut in UK ??. Kii…. by next album, EPIC gonna give her Meghan Trainor treatment… Even All I Want For Christmast by Mariah made more money for EPIC thn Romance ever will. ??

  16. High Price December 14, 2019

    So damn overrated it don’t make no sense! Ugh. Can’t wait until her 1 week of fame is over. Boring asf.

  17. Antincia foster December 14, 2019

    I like her

  18. Jay December 14, 2019

    Bottom line is she flopped. The racist chick flopped, and it served her right! There’s no need to make excuses or compare her to anybody else. The promo was there, and people still didn’t want her.
