Fresh off her Billboard Music Awards performance, Camila Cabello premieres another taste off her debut album, The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving, out in September via Epic Records. The 20-year-old singer slows things down, showing off a different side of her artistry.
Unlike “Crying In The Club” which features a tropical house vibe, “I Have Questions” is a straight-up ballad. Her vulnerable vocals and emotional delivery are on full display on the track which she penned in a hotel bathroom. Read below to learn more about the personal single.
the first song from my forthcoming album “the hurting the healing the loving” will come out on 5.19.17…. “the hurting the healing the loving” is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when i was lost to a time when i found myself again. The story behind the album starts with the second song that you’ll hear called “I have questions” which I started writing in a hotel bathroom on tour a little over a year ago. i was completely broken during that time, i was in the kind of pain that’s uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud…. i couldn’t write another song for 6 months because writing meant i had to feel everything, and i wasn’t ready to do that yet. so when i graduated from hotel bathrooms to studios to make my first album, i was making music about everything BUT what i was going through, it was like a secret burning on my tongue and for some reason i could not get myself to say it…….
Of the two, I prefer “I Have Questions” much more than “Crying In The Club.” The latter is fine and all, but Camila sounds too much like Sia on that number while on her latest, I feel, she’s truly herself. Give it a spin below.
