Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao (/kəˈmlə kəˈb/; Spanish: [kaˈmila kaˈβeʝo]; born March 3, 1997)[1] is a Cuban-born American singer and songwriter. She rose to prominence as a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony, formed on The X Factor USA in 2012, signing a joint record deal with Syco Music and Epic Records. While in Fifth Harmony, Cabello began to establish herself as a solo artist with the release of the collaborations "I Know What You Did Last Summer" with Shawn Mendes and "Bad Things" with Machine Gun Kelly, the latter reaching number four on the US Billboard Hot 100. After leaving the group in late 2016, Cabello released several other collaborations, including "Hey Ma" with Pitbull and J Balvin for The Fate of the Furious soundtrack (2017) and her debut solo single "Crying in the Club".

Cabello's debut studio album, Camila (2018), reached number one on the US Billboard 200. The Latin music-influenced pop album was well-received critically and earned a Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Its lead single "Havana" topped charts in several countries, including the US and UK, and follow-up single "Never Be the Same" reached the top ten in multiple countries. Cabello's 2019 duet with Mendes, "Señorita", became her second single to top the Billboard Hot 100. Her second studio album, Romance (2019), peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 chart and number one in Canada. She made her acting debut in 2021, starring as the title character from the film Cinderella.

Cabello has amassed billions of streams on music platforms, and "Havana" became the best-selling digital single of 2018, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). Cabello's many awards include two Latin Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, and one Billboard Music Award.

Early life and education

Cabello was born in Havana, Cuba,[2][3] to Sinuhe Estrabao and Alejandro Cabello. She grew up in the town of Cojímar in East Havana. Her father was born in Mexico City and is a Mexican who moved to Cuba. She has a younger sister named Sofia.[4] For most of her early life, Cabello and her family moved back and forth between Havana and Mexico City. When Cabello was six years old, she relocated to Miami, Florida, in the United States, with her mother; her father was unable to obtain a visa at the time and joined the family approximately 18 months later.[2][5][6][7] Cabello acquired American citizenship in 2008.[8] She attended Miami Palmetto High School but left during the 2012–2013 school year while she was in 9th grade to pursue her singing career. She later earned her high school diploma.[9]


2012–2016: The X Factor and Fifth Harmony

Camila Cabello auditioned for the TV talent competition show The X Factor in Greensboro, North Carolina with Aretha Franklin's "Respect";[10][11] however, her audition was not aired because the series did not get the rights for the song. After elimination during the "bootcamp" portion of the process in Miami, Florida, Cabello was called back to the stage along with other contestants Ally Brooke, Normani, Lauren Jauregui, and Dinah Jane to form the girl group that would later become known as Fifth Harmony.[12] After finishing in third place on the show, they signed a joint deal with Syco Music, owned by Simon Cowell, and Epic Records, L.A. Reid's record label.[13][14]

The group released the EP Better Together (2013) along with the studio albums Reflection (2015) and 7/27 (2016). The latter two generated the singles "Worth It" and "Work from Home", respectively, which reached the top 10 in several international charts.[15] From 2013 through the end of 2016, Cabello performed in various tours with Fifth Harmony. In November 2015, Cabello collaborated with Canadian singer Shawn Mendes on a duet titled "I Know What You Did Last Summer", a song they wrote together.[16][17] The single charted at number 20 in the US and 18 in Canada[18] and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[19] On October 14, 2016, American rapper Machine Gun Kelly released a joint single with Cabello called "Bad Things",[20] which reached a peak of number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.[21] Also that year, Time magazine included Cabello on "The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2016" list.[22]

On December 18, 2016, Fifth Harmony announced Cabello's departure, with both sides giving contradictory explanations of the circumstances for her exit.[23][24][25] She appeared in a previously taped performance with the group on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve at the end of 2016.[26] Writing about Cabello's time in the group, a Billboard journalist noted it is "rather uncommon for someone to stand out in a collective as much as Cabello has over the past years."[27]

On January 25, 2017, "Love Incredible", a collaboration with Norwegian DJ Cashmere Cat, leaked online.[28] The official version of the song was released on February 16, and later featured on Cashmere's debut studio album, 9 (2017).[29] Cabello also recorded "Hey Ma" with rappers Pitbull and J Balvin for The Fate of the Furious soundtrack (2017).

Her Tumblr account was deleted soon afterward and Cabello issued an apology, stating that she was "uneducated and ignorant" when younger and that she was deeply embarrassed to have ever used "horrible and hurtful" language.
