Camila Cabello references her split from Fifth Harmony on her new track, “Psychofreak.”
The ‘Don’t Go Yet’ singer – who left the girl group in 2016 to pursue a solo career – admits she doesn’t “blame the girls for what happened”.
She sings, “Everybody say they miss the old me / Been on this ride since I was 15.
I don’t blame the girls for the way it turned out.
Her exit came amid reports of tension between her and the other four members, but Camila later insisted her relationship with Normani, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui was much better than it was. .
Speaking in 2018, she said: “I just don’t like beef or drama. I feel like we’re in a really good place right now, me girls. I’ve seen Normani at the Billboard Music Awards and we just caught up I told her I was super excited for her I can’t remember the last time I saw the other girls but I told her to say the same to the girls I feel like there’s been enough time and distance from the situation that I feel like we’re all really in the right place right now and honestly it There’s just no time in life for that kind of stuff. What’s the point?”
The song is featured on Camila’s new album, “Familia”, which is out now.
Camila, 25, found writing the record a “cathartic” experience.
The brunette beauty – who split from Shawn Mendes in 2021 – explained: “For me, my process is really cathartic.
“This is me singing whatever I think and feel into a microphone. I like seven takes of this. I do this for like 25 minutes and then me and my collaborators talk about it. Then we say to each other “Oh, you said that, that was really cool.” We brainstorm, we fill it out and then it becomes a song.”
During this time, Camila also explained that she turned to meditation and therapy as a way to navigate the ups and downs of life.
She said: “As I get older, I find more and more resources, like for example meditation and talking to a therapist.
“Also talking to my friends, like literally saying, ‘Guys, I feel like this. And it’s fear, and I feel sad about it. Being really open with people, going for walks, I feel like that’s kind of the key to growing old.
“Those feelings are going to come and I think you’re gathering more and more tools to deal with them in a healthy way.”
