TRACK OF THE WEEK Camila Ca­bello - Ha­vana Who knew a mid-tempo song with a trum­pet solo could be so damn sexy? Part of it is down to the sul­try alto vo­cals by Camilla (for­merly of Fifth Har­mony) and part of it is down to how she shrugs off her love in­ter­est as a sum­mer fling. Yeah, it was fun, she sings, but I’ve gotta go now. “I knew it when I met him/ I loved him when I left him.” PS: won­der­ing why that trum­pet hook is so catchy? It’s be­cause Phar­rell has a song­writ­ing credit.

HERO OF THE WEEK is Demi Lo­vato, who opened up to Jonathan Ross about her de­ci­sion to get sober. “I knew that I had a lot of life ahead of me but one of the main rea­sons of get­ting sober was so that I could be around my lit­tle sis­ter. My mom and dad said I couldn’t be around her if I was do­ing stuff.”

She con­tin­ued: “This time I knew … I had hit rock bot­tom and I just needed to do this for my­self. I went through some tough times and went to treat­ment for some strug­gles that I had, and now I’ve come out the other side. I had fam­ily and re­ally close friends and my man­ager – they all were by my side through ev­ery­thing. My fans, too, I feel they gave me a rea­son to live and I’m for­ever grate­ful. So I got the help I needed and now I co-own a treat­ment cen­tre.”

SWIFT RE­PLACE­MENT Here’s a nice vi­gnette from the world of pop. Cardi B (left) cel­e­brated her No 1 with flow­ers from the per­son she knocked from the top spot: Tay­lor Swift. Cardi wrote on In­sta­gram: “Sooo beau­ti­ful and lovely .Thank you @tay­lor­swift for the flow­ers, and I freak­ing love your mu­sic”

ZERO OF THE WEEK is Nick Jonas, who over­shared big time to Buz­zFeed. “Know­ing that peo­ple are hav­ing sex to my mu­sic is the best thing in the world,” he said. “I just re­quire a com­mis­sion by way of nam­ing the child af­ter me. Ni­cholas, Nick, Nikki, Ni­co­lette. That should be the ex­change.”
