When it comes to what artist to feature on their tracks, music producers often consider and audition several before making the final decision. Apparently for “Closer,” Camila Cabello was in the mix before The Chainsmokers ultimately picked Halsey. Had Cabello been selected, I wonder if the track still would’ve become a smash hit and spent 12 consecutive weeks ruling the Billboard Hot 100. Guess we’ll never find out.
It’s pretty evident that Cabello was orchestrating her exit from Fifth Harmony long before the official announcement. Without the girls, she snatched up solo collabos with Shawn Mendes, Cashmere Cat, Machine Gun Kelly, Diplo and one almost with The Chainsmokers. Listen to a snippet below of what could’ve been and weigh in afterward if you think Halsey or Camila was better suited for “Closer.”
