Camila Cabello’s Debut Solo Single ‘Crying In The Club’ Is An Undeniable, Christina Aguilera-Sampling Smash!

It’s all led up to this moment…

Since her evident departure from Fifth Harmony (we all saw it coming), Camila Cabello has wasted no time hopping right into solo superstar mode, gracing the covers of magazines, jumping on a whole bunch of features – Machine Gun Kelly‘s “Bad Things,” Cashmere CatLove Incredible,” and Pitbull and J Balvin‘s “Hey Ma” from The Fate of the Furious soundtrack – to hyping up her debut solo album.

This week, Camila officially makes the leap into solo pop-princess territory with the genuinely infectious “Crying in the Club,” the lead single off her upcoming full-length LP titled, The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.

Crying In The Club” – written and produced by pop dream team Sia, Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco and Happy Perez – like Sia‘s “Cheap Thrills” and basically any other current hit out right now, carries on the island lite sound that’s dominated the singles charts over the last year — but Camila‘s full-bodied vocal chops manage to rise above the production, elevating it above your typical radio-trending anthem.

Ain’t no crying in the club (hey, hey) / Let the beat carry, your tears as they fall baby / Ain’t no crying in the club (hey, hey) / With a little faith, your tears turn to ecstasy/ Ain’t no crying in the club,” she declares with a sensual confidence, before launching into a euphoric melody that indeed samples Christina Aguilera‘s very own ’99 debut single, “Genie In A Bottle.” “AH-ah-AHH-ah-AHH…./ Ain’t no crying in the club.” Don’t worry, XTina is fully credited – she’s getting her coin.

The song is all about being broken down from a relationship, but rising above it all with a little help from “the music” — a self-empowerment anthem, yes, with the kind of relatable lyricism you’d come to expect to come from a Sia-penned smash.

There are a lot of things to love about “Crying in the Club,” even if it’s a bit generic: The bass-heavy pulse. Melodies galore. The thoroughly infectious chorus build. The slow-mo bridge, and Camila‘s signature endless runs in the end. It really knocks — and, with proper effort, it’ll knock her straight up the charts. Enough fighting it, I am fully on board the Canola Train.
