Cabello's music video for "Crying in the Club" - off her upcoming debut album, The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving - features the former Fifth Harmony member showing off her sultry side.
Anticipation for the singer's new material has been sky-high ever since she left world-dominating girl group Fifth Harmony previous year, but fans will be pleased to know she's delivered a club-ready anthem that packs an emotional punch. As she croons in her first solo single, there "ain't no crying in the club".
To which the singer responded, "Honestly, you couldn't have said it better". The shimmering dance-floor ode is emotional in just the right places with an intimacy and ache to be unleashed. The song includes the lyrics "Ain't no crying in the club/Let the beat carry your tears as they fall baby". Check it out below, and let us know what you think! "It ain't true, ain't true, ain't true, no". "He's just incredible and he probably knows that he has that effect on people, so he makes an effort to make you feel welcome and at home, which I think is really nice", Cabello added. Open up your heart to me. Let the music lift you up, like you've never been this free.' It felt like what this album and this music was and what it was saying to me. Cue the heat of "a thousand fires" and a sense of abandon that helps her "tears turn to ecstasy". You begin believing her.
Her debut record, The Hurting.
The 20-year-old singer has released several songs with other artists outside of her work with Fifth Harmony, but this is the first time that she has dropped a song all on her own.
"But I feel like with any kind of writing process or with any kind of music-making process, you have to be in tune with your emotions in order to really write honestly", she continued.
"It's probably not the ideal scenario, but I believe the appetite for both is high", says Erik Bradley, longtime MD for CBS Radio WBBM (B96) in Chicago, who also consults for Top 40 stations in Dallas and Detroit. Until I was sick of the sad songs! "From a time when I was lost to a time when I found myself again".
Writing The Hurting. The Healing. I know one fan specifically who came from Mexico, and I always saw her in NY working to get extra money for her family. The song samples Fastball's classic 1997 hit "Out of My Head".
