CAMILA CABELLO

-

Havana feat. Young Thug

SYCO MUSIC Ever since she departed girl band Fifth Harmony amid a hail of controvers­y, Cabello has tried her best to establish herself as a bona fide solo star. Latest effort ‘Havana’ falls short of its aim to make her a serious player in the pop world; indeed it’s a shameless rip-off of both DJ Khaled and Rihanna’s ‘Wild Thoughts’ and Selena Gomez’s ‘Same Old Love’. Spiced with Latin flavours, it’s not a complete car crash, but the lack of charisma or originalit­y leaves this reviewer cold.
