It’s not uncommon for musicians to freak out a bit the night before their album drops, although the pressure might not be as high if they worked on the record with a group like Fifth Harmony or One Direction style. But, for Camila Cabello releasing her first solo debut album was scary AF for a bunch of different reasons. It was her first impression as a solo artist and even though she already had a fan base and the world knew her name, it was still super nervewracking. As we’ve seen in the past, just because you might be a star in a band doesn’t always mean you’re going to have solo success.
Camila chatted with Zane Lowe during his Beats 1 radio show about what happened the night before the world got a chance to listen to, Camila. She said, “My heart was beating so fast. I would just try to go to sleep, and then I would just get my phone and I’d be like, ‘Did it come out yet?'” This was all happening before a 4 a.m. wake up call. And if anyone has ever had to get up super early after going to bed really freaking late, it’s not fun. That’s a fact.
But, this wasn’t even the worst part of her night. A hotel staffer member had come into her room, very innocently, and Camila totally freaked out. Like she actually thought she was going to die and never see how well her album did. You think we’re kidding? We’re not. Camila explained, “I was trying to go to sleep and this lady came in, and she scared the bejeezus out of me. I thought that I was having a nightmare. She was like, ‘Hello?’ I was so scared. I was like, ‘This is it. This is it. This is my last day and I didn’t even get to see my album come out.'”
Thankfully, she wasn’t murdered or hurt. LOL. That wouldn’t be funny, but we can laugh now knowing that her nerves really did just get the best of her. And we have a feeling she’s sleeping a little bit better now knowing just how in love her fans are with her solo music. Oh yeah, and Shawn Mendes who gave her the most adorable shout-out ever because their friendship is #GOALS.
