Third album from Cuban-American singer songwriter Camila Cabello

With her smash hit "Havana," Camila Cabello barrelled past the quasi-anonymity of her girl group days to announce who she was and where she was from, writes Pitchfork.

The realignment felt complete by the time she sang the hit, a crackling ode to her birthplace, at the 2019 Grammys, making stops to shimmy opposite Ricky Martin and trill along to J Balvin's "Mi Gente."

Fifth Harmony, the Simon Cowell-engineered quintet with which she'd performed girlbossy pop anthems, was in her past. Now, if not exactly carrying Martin's torch, she was warmed by the flame he had ignited on the same stage, two decades prior, with a famous performance that heralded the so-called "Latin explosion" in the United States.

On her third album, Familia, Cabello — who is half Cuban, half Mexican, and lived in both countries before immigrating to the U.S. at age 7 — embarks on a more immersive exploration of her musical heritage.

Abandoning the revolving-door approach of previous albums, whose credits read like a directory of pop producers, Cabello locked in with a smaller group of collaborators including Latin pop veterans Cheche Alara (Thalia, Natalia Lafourcade) and Edgar Barrera (Maluma, Natti Natasha).

Cabello is a credited writer on all her post-5H songs, and her Instagram essays offer further evidence of her active pen. In a recent one, she mused on the state of perpetual otherness she experiences as an immigrant, mentioning frustration with the limitations of her Spanish and feeling like an outsider in Latinx spaces. "I want so badly to sit at a table I don't belong to as much as everybody else," she confessed.
