Diamond-certified multi-GRAMMY® Award-nominated Cuban-born singer, songwriter, actress, and activist Camila Cabello pushes popular music and culture beyond boundaries and borders. She has broken one ceiling after another and made history in the process. She has notably emerged as “the first Hispanic woman to reach RIAA Diamond status” with her Billboard Hot 100 #1 smash “Havana” [feat. Young Thug]—which also stands out “as the most-streamed song of all-time by a female artist.” She has garnered dozens of awards, including two Latin GRAMMY® Awards, five American Music Awards, and a Billboard Music Award. In 2018, her full-length debut album, Camila, bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went platinum. It received a GRAMMY® nomination in the category of “Best Pop Vocal Album” as “Havana (Live)” picked up a nod for “Best Pop Solo Performance.” With the success of the triple-platinum single “Never Be The Same,” she made history yet again as “the first artist ever to land two multi-format number one singles with the first two singles from a debut album.” During 2019, she teamed up with Shawn Mendes for “Señorita.”
The multi platinum anthem scored a nomination for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” at the GRAMMY® Awards. Her sophomore full-length, ROMANCE, ascended to platinum status. In its wake, she would be the “first female artist since Adele to triple up atop Billboard’s Hot 100, Top 200, and Artist 100 charts.” However, most recently, Camila made her most important, irresistible, and inimitable artistic statement to date with her third full-length album, Familia, released in April of 2022.
