Camila Cabello has embraced her Latin roots at the Champions League final…
The 25-year-old Mexican & Cuban singer gave futbol fans something to remember at the opening of the 2022 UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, May 28.
Prior to the face-off between Liverpool and Real Madrid, Cabello delivered a colorful spectacle for thousands of fans at Stade de France in Paris.
The carnival-themed celebration, which Cabello paid homage to Cabello’s Latin heritage, featured a medley of “Senorita,” “Havana,” “Bam Bam” and “Don’t Go Yet.”
In a recent interview with Billboard, Cabello discussed weaving elements of her Latin culture into her new music and into every aspect of her life.
“My music, I always feel celebrates my heritage and my Cuban-Mexican heritage, so there’s going to be songs from Familia on there,” the singer said of the performance.
The performance was a natural fit for Cabello, who grew up watching the World Cup with her family every four years. “Out of every sport, it’s the only one I really understand and the one that gets me the most hyped,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to see a soccer game in person.”
Cabello has always been openly proud of her Latin culture, and on her recent studio album, Familia, that connection is deeply celebrated through vibrant instrumentals and a number of Spanish-language songs including “Celia,” “Hasta Los Dientes” featuring Maria Becerra and verses in “Lola” featuring Yotuel.
The UEFA Champions League final opening ceremony, presented by Pepsi, aired in more 200 countries and territories worldwide.
The 24-year-old Cuban-Mexican singer and former Fifth Harmony member will take part in Michael Bublé’s holiday special Christmas in the City next week on NBC.
In addition to Cabello, Bublé’s other guests will include Jimmy Fallon, Leon Bridges, Ted Lasso actress Hannah Waddingham and Kermit the Frog. They’ll be backed by a 48-piece orchestra.
“I’m especially excited about this year’s show and our phenomenal guests,” Bublé said in a statement. “It will be a night to remember and I can’t wait to celebrate with everyone.”
Michael Bublé’s Christmas in the City, premiering Monday, December 6, at 10:00 pm ET on NBC, will celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the crooner’s Christmas album, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 back in 2011 and just landed at No. 2 on Billboard‘s Greatest of All Time Top Holiday Albumschart.
While this will mark the first time Bublé has performed with Cabello, his now-3-year-old daughter Vida starred in an adorable viral video with the crooner last year singing “Señorita,” Cabello’s Hot 100 No. 1 duet with Shawn Mendes.
It’s a repeat billion performance for Camila Cabello…
The 24-year-old Mexican and Cuban singer and former Fifth Harmony member’s “Havana” video, featuring Young Thug, has surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube, the video-sharing site has announced.
Cabello’s video was released in October 2017 and the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 in January 2018 — marking Cabello’s first No. 1 on the chart.
Cabello is no stranger to YouTube’s Billion Views Club. Before launching her solo career, Cabello’s all-girl group Fifth Harmony— as of August this year — has racked up a pair of videos with 2 billion views on the site: 2015’s “Worth It” and 2016’s “Work From Home.”
Cabello also racked up 1 billion views with her 2019 Shawn Mendes duet “Señorita,” which joined the club in April 2000. The former couple’s steamy duet also hit No. 1 on the Hot 100.
The 27-year-old Colombian singer/songwriter has joined voices with Shawn Mendes for the newly released bilingual version of Camilo’s ultra tropical love anthem “Kesi.”
It’s the first time the pair has worked together, and the moment was made possible after Mendes reached out to Camilo over DM.
“I was like listening to, I heard KESI And I was like, I’m obsessed with this song. I’m just going to, I slid in his DMS and I was like, ‘Please let me do a verse on this song because I’m obsessed with it,'” the “Señorita” singer told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1.
Camilo said in a statement that he wasn’t planning on releasing a remix of “Kesi,” off his chart-topping Mis Manosalbum, but when Mendes proposed the idea, it was an immediate yes.
“Being a big fan of his music, the pure idea of hearing him singing in Spanish is something that made me so excited. The fact that he decided to sing in our language for the first time in his career on a song with me is one of the greatest honors I’ve had in my career as an artist.”
The remix stays true to the original sounds rooted in traditional champeta, a genre that originates from the coast of Colombia. The twist comes comes near the remix’s minute-mark with Mendes singing a verse in English, and then transitions to Spanish to sing the chorus: “If you tell me right now that you want me by your side, that would be beautiful … but you don’t tell me kesi (yes).”
This release comes as Camilo embarks on his global Mis Manos Tour, which kicked off in Spain and includes 16 sold out dates in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Camila Cabello isn’t wasting time while in quarantime…
The 23-year-old Mexican and Cuban singer-songwriter’s words of encouragement to her fans this week has given them a clue that Cabello’s next album might already be in the works.
Cabello posed a photo surrounded by her guitars and keyboards as she casually lounged on the couch. “Sending so much love to everyone,” she started off her sweet social media message. “Been writing a lot of new music and it’s coming from a really pure place. reminding myself everyday that life is now; and not in yesterday or tomorrow. let’s be extra gentle, soft, and kind to ourselves and others today.”
It’s the first official new music update from Cabello since she released her sophomore album Romance on December 6, 2019, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

The new episode of Cabello’s series will be released on Wednesday, July 15.
“They say he likes a good time, my, oh my,” Cabello begins in the first verse of the piano-accompanied medley. The former Fifth Harmony member shared a preview of her performance on Instagram, commenting, ‘This might be my favorite one!”
The track transitions over to a solo of her chart-topping Shawn Mendes collaboration “Señorita” before building up to “Liar” with several layers of vocal takes from Cabello.
Tune in to episode two of her “acoustic jam session” in partnership with Mastercard on YouTube at 5:00 pm ET on July 15.
