Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello has confirmed the title and release date of her debut album.

Earlier this year she said it would be called The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving. But she's now explained it will simply be called - Camila.

On Instagram she wrote: "My debut album is finally finished. Now I'm trying to steady my heartbeat.

"Thank you for being so patient with me this year, I can't wait for you to hear what has been the soundtrack to the past year of my life."

The post was accompanied by a picture, which is assumed to be the album artwork.

The singer said Camila will be out on 12 January and named two of the tracks on the album - Never Be The Same and Real Friend.

In the post, she added: "All of these songs have special memories behind them, and I'm not gonna lie, it feels emotional letting them go, feels like the end of a chapter.

"I decided to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended.

"It started with somebody else's story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself."

It follows the singer leaving Fifth Harmony in December last year.

At the time, in a message on social media, the group wrote: "After four and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representatives that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony. We wish her well."
