Label bosses weren't convinced Camila Cabello's Havana was a hit

She explained: "I think that the good thing about social media and the internet is that I feel like it makes the world smaller and it just kind of breaks down barriers between languages, between people, between cultures, and I think that might have something to do with that".

Through most of a year ago, "Camila" was supposed to carry the unwieldy title "The Hurting, the Healing, the Loving" and bear much more sad material.

To refresh your memory, in the 2017 Fifth Harmony performed at the VMA's. There aren't many other flourishes from the land of Cabello's birth on "Camila", her first solo album, so it was a stroke of possibly accidental genius to sense a huge hit in a blithely tropical song about a gal who left her heart in a less easily retrievable place than San Francisco.

It has also become the first song by a lead female artist to enjoy a seven-week run atop the Billboard Pop Songs chart since Taylor Swift's I Knew You Were Trouble back in 2013 - but Camila wouldn't be enjoying so much success if she had listened to record officials' initial concerns, according to Havana's producer, Frank Dunes.

Camila Cabello originally planned to call her solo debut "The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving".

She added, "I wasn't expecting it, I wasn't prepared for it - especially because at that point I'd moved on from it".

In February 2017, the singer opened up about the fallout from the leaving Fifth Harmony.

Rumors of a feud reached a fever pitch last August when the four-member group (sans Camila) pulled a statement-making stunt during a performance at MTV's Video Music Awards. Nope. She's chose to let that moment go to make room for all the awesome things going on in her life.

Cabello is doing more than fine without her former bandmates. The moombahton-inspired She Loves Control and Inside Out are similarly euphoric and flirty, taking a page from the tropical-house craze that has all but engulfed pop radio in the latter half of this decade. "Why?'" Cabello said it almost made her cry.

Camila Cabello is seen departing "The Tonight Show" in Midtown on January 10, 2018 in New York City.
