Camila Cabello – “Crying in the Club”

performs onstage during 102.7 KIIS FM's 2017 Wango Tango at StubHub Center on May 13, 2017 in Carson, California.

Since leaving Fifth Harmony late last year, Camila Cabello has refashioned herself as a solo pop star. “Crying in the Club,” her debut solo single, dropped last night. It’s co-written by Sia, with production from Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat, among others. The dancehall-inspired beat bears a passing resemblance to Sia’s “Cheap Thrills,” while the wordless chorus samples a breakout single of yesteryear: Christina Aguilera’s “Genie in a Bottle,” which hit #1 across the world in 1999.

The three-and-a-half-minute single cut of “Crying in the Club” trims the song down to its most dance floor-friendly portion, but there’s also a five-minute-plus video version with an extended intro (“I Have Questions”) to show off Cabello’s voice. Listen to the shorter version below.
