Get ready to be shaken by Pharrell and Camila Cabello
After the massive success of their hit “Havana,” Pharrell Williams and Camila Cabello have joined forces once again to bring the world another bop. Instead of telling us about how half of their heart is in Havana ooh-na-na, they are playing on our love for alcohol.
“Sangria Wine” is an extremely catchy Latin pop song that will be stuck in your head for days. The beat is infectious and the lyrics are simple but yet extremely good. There is a verse that is completely in Spanish. The verse is probably the most complex verse out of the entire song. Here’s the English translation for you:
I know you want my body, uh
And you want to control my mind, eh
And everybody wants to own her
But no one can, aye
The song itself feels like there’s an accompanying dance to go with it. I’m calling it now that “Sangria Wine” is actually a dance that will shortly take over the world. This song is SO better than “Happy.” That song was overly hyped and overplayed. I wasn’t happy when it came on the radio.
Camila’s vocals on the song are life. She continues to prove that she was the real star of Fifth Harmony. I hope that a solo version from Camila comes out. Pharrell’s vocals aren’t bad on the song. They work with the vibe that is presented with the song. I just prefer Camila on the song. Camila is queen.
I highly recommend listening to “Sangria Wine” and adding it to your summertime playlist. It’s pretty much everything. Now, it did take me a while to warm up to “Sangria Wine.” It’s not that I hated at first. It’s a different style of song. I had to listen a few times to fully understand what I was feeling about it. But this song is going to be everywhere. Pharrell and Camila definitely have another hit on their hands.

Camila Cabello releases her first album “Camila”
The wait is finally over! After months of singles and wishing for more, we have Camila’s first album. Originally slated for release last fall, it’s so far the album of 2018 that everyone wanted. It’s not hard as it just started but we’ve all been waiting her album, especially after the beef her and her former band, Fifth Harmony, have had since her departure.
Camila is bursting onto the music scene
“Camila” mixes the worlds of western pop music with the flavoring of Latin pop. Her style fits her vocals more so than anything in she did in that one band that aren’t really in harmony now. She really feels more comfortable singing this kind of stuff. It’s also rather good as well.
The vocals aren’t too overly produced but enough produced to where it’s okay when there’s a bit of production added her singing. The flow of the album is also rather good. It has some issues with the beginning and the end just because it’s the same song. Literally, it’s the same song. Doesn’t make any sense. Other than that, the flow is lit.
The album itself is addictive. It leaves you wanting more from it because it just so good. “Havana” was the standout from the start and it still is with the rest of the songs on the album. Some of my other favorites are “Into It”,”Consquences,” and “Something’s Gotta Give.” I just wish that “Crying in the Club” got more love because it isn’t necessary to have two version of the same song on the same album. It was a bop that deserved to make the cut on album. And yes, I know that she remove the song from the track list when she scraped the original album track list. Hopefully there’s a re-release with it, and “OMG” on it. I just really hate to see songs that were great not get a proper release.
“Camila” is an extremely good album that is an excellent start to the solo career. It’s not perfect what it’s pretty close to it. There’s a little of bit of flow issues with the songs and its missing something that makes it stand out more. The ballads and the bangers are the best part of the album. So far, it’s the album of the year.
Here’s the album for you to enjoys:

We’re Cool for the Summer
It’s almost the end of Summer and it’s time that I give you the list of the songs of what was the summer of 2017. These probably won’t surprise you but you even joyed some of these songs so much that you shouldn’t mind them again. You can tell your mother about this list because I need the promo.
Grab a drink, an umbrella, and go work on your tan. Here are Top 5ive songs of summer 2017:
5. “It Ain’t Me” by Kygo and Selena Gomez
This song has been everywhere since its release in February 2017. While it’s been out for more than a hot second, It more so took off this summer. Between the catchy lyrics and beat mixed with Selena’s vocals, this song picked up its second wind and boy, it was a well-earned second wind. Here’s my review of “It Ain’t Me.”
4. “Crying in the Club” by Camila Cabello
While I hope you weren’t crying in the club this summer, Camila Cabello’s first single literally slayed the shit out of the Fifth Harmony single “Down.” While she sounds way too much like Sia, it’s still a banger and an amazing song. It’s catchy, which you probably noticed is a quality in all of these songs. But “Crying in the Club” is just something that really shakes you to your core with the beat. Here’s my review of “Crying in the Club.”
3. “Malibu” by Miley Cyrus
Who would have thought that Miley Cyrus would put some pants on, keep her tongue in her mouth, and release a love ballad that would be the ballad of summertime love? Malibu is pretty much your song for any sort of love you have had this summer. This ballad was everything. It made you feel warm and fuzzy like the beaches of Malibu. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s the new love song for Miley and Liam. Who doesn’t love them together? Here’s my review of “Malibu.”
2. “Attention” by Charlie Puth
This song is pretty much addicting. The beat is catchy and it just something that makes you want to groove. It’s the perfect song for that summer fling that is playing you. Who knew that Charlie singing about getting played and not actually being loved would be so big? I guess brooding Charlie Puth is what the world would need in 2017. Here’s my review of “Attention.”
1. “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee
This song is literally everywhere. You cannot escape it all whether it’s the real one or the one with Justin Bieber that made the song popular, but I won’t go into how wrong that was. This song is extremely dirty and sexual. But it’s okay because you can’t understand the lyrics since it’s in Spanish. Remember that the next time you sing this song with your mother. It’s pretty much about having a sensual encounter. You’re Welcome.

It’s been a busy weekend for the former Fifth Harmony member as she decided to rock our core with brand new songs from her upcoming debut album “The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.” While these aren’t official singles, they do offer a quick look into the what to really expect from an album we pretty much heard nothing about besides some little things.
Camila released “Havana” and “OMG.” Both songs are bangers and both are jams. “Havana” features Young Thug and is the strong song out of the two. It just pure pop and catchier than a case of herpes from a dollar stripper. It has a beat that you can groove to and is just sultry enough to be sexy. It’s just a bouncy beat with lyrics that just go with the flow. And Young Thug is featured briefly on the track and it’s just enough to make the song and not be too much. It’s literally just a perfect song. The only bad thing about is that it left me wanting more.
“OMG” is a club banger that shows her voice better than “Crying in the Club.” While nothing will beat that, it sounds more like her. The beats are sick and fit so well with the vocals on the song and flow. Quavo is on the song and like Young Thug, he isn’t too much into the song but just the right amount. I just wish that the song had a better ending because it literally stops mid beat. When I first listened to it, I thought it was the device that I was listening on messing up. Nope, it’s just how the song ended.
“Havana” and “OMG” are great promotional tracks for Camila’s upcoming record. Her music has been better than anything that Fifth Harmony has put out since she left. I can’t wait to see what the album offers.
“The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.” is released on September 22nd.’
