Former Fifth Harmony star Camila Cabello has released the music video for her smash hit single Havana featuring Young Thug.
Directed by Dave Meyers, the video stars Cabello as Karla and opens with an homage to telenovelas. The video also features Young Thug and special guests Lele Pons, Jejuan James and Noah Centineo
Speaking about the inspiration behind the music video, Camila says: “Roger, my manager, my mum and I were just talking and we came up with the idea of doing like a film, a mini movie and it was inspired from music videos like Thriller, where you can’t tell what’s real or not. The video is like a line between reality and fantasy that’s blurred and that is my vibe, and that is my kind of thing, I love music videos and anyone will tell you this video is definitely about me. The kind of books I read are fiction and the kind of movies I watch are fiction. I love reading Harry Potter and watching Disney movies.”
Havana is the follow-up to Crying in the Club and has spent the last two weeks at number 2 on the UK Official Singles chart and number 1 on the UK iTunes chart. The song has amassed more than 210,000,000 streams so far.
Cabello announced her debut album The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving. earlier this year but the release date for the collection is still to be confirmed.
