THE HURTING, THE HEALING, THE LOVING

(May 19, 2017 — Los Angeles, CA) — Multiplatinum award-winning singer and songwriter Camila Cabello shares her much-anticipated debut single “Crying in the Club” today via Epic Records/SYCO. Hear it HERE and watch the video on VEVO HERE. “Crying in the Club” is the first release from her upcoming debut solo album The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving. After revealing the album title on social media this past weekend, Camila explained, “The hurting, The healing, The loving’ is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when I was lost to a time when I found myself again.”
Camila co-wrote “Crying in the Club” with Sia and it was produced by Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran). Driven by her powerhouse voice and irresistible charisma, “Crying in the Club” sports a hashtag-worthy hook “crying in the club.” Not only is it bound to be one of the summer’s biggest songs, but it also introduces this multi-talented artist’s next chapter. Top listeners on Spotify during the first week of release will be rewarded with an exclusive Camila t-shirt.
On Sunday, May 21, Camila takes the stage at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas for her television debut performance of “Crying in the Club” live from the T-Mobile Arena at 8:00pm ET/5:00pm PT on ABC. In addition, Camilawill perform a special encore of another new song “I Have Questions” along with exclusive content and behind-the-scenes for Comcast Xfinity X1 users, immediately following the live broadcast of the Billboard Awards. “I Have Questions” will be available globally at 12:00pm PT on May 21st.
“Crying in the Club” arrives hot on the heels of “Bad Things”—Camila’s #1 double platinum-certified smash collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly. Among many accolades, “Bad Things” claimed #1 at Top 40 radio, generated over 240 million Spotify streams, garnered a platinum plaque, and received “Best Collaboration” at the Radio Disney Music Awards. It also set the stage for her upcoming solo record.
Camila spent the first part of 2017 quietly working on what has become her new album. Devoted to every detail, she wrote or co-wrote each song, collaborating closely with a bevy of heavy hitters such as Pharrell, Frank Dukes, Charli XCX, Ryan Tedder, MXM, Diplo, Benny Blanco, Sia, Stargate and more. As a result, the music tells her story like never before, inviting fans closer than ever and showcasing her spirit as an artist.
During an interview with Newsweek, Ryan Tedder recently declared, “She’s not only an incredible singer, but she’s also the most talented young artist I think I’ve worked with in songwriting in the longest time.” Diplo described her as “amazing.” Of working with her, Charli XCX proclaimed, “Honestly I was floored.” Meanwhile, Shawn Mendes put it best calling her, “The best female vocalist ever.”
In 2015, Camila teamed up with Shawn Mendes for the platinum-certified duet, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which reached 10 at pop radio and hit #20 on The Hot 100 chart. Camila is currently featured on J Balvin and Pitbull’s “Hey Ma” from the worldwide hit film Fate of the Furious and its chart-topping soundtrack. The trio delivered an explosive performance of “Hey Ma” at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Beginning her solo career after four years in Fifth Harmony, she had earned a veritable smash in the form of “Bad Things” with MGK. As a result of its success, she became “the first female artist to hit #1 on Top 40 Radio with and without a group.” Camila and MGK gave show-stopping performances on Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. She also graced the cover of Seventeen Magazine, Billboard, and Latina in addition landing on Time‘s “The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2016.” Camila has earned four top 20 songs on The Hot 100 chart – two with the group and two as a solo artist.

America’s Beauty Show Hits CHICAGO!
My 2 interns got to experience America’s Beauty Show last week in Chicago. Check out their review below.
America’s Beauty Show was the most rewarding event for cosmetologists of Chicago. McCormick Place venue was large enough to accomodate all 400+ vendors, without the feeling of being too overwhelmed. Vendors included those of all beauty aspects from hair, makeup, nails, and skincare. Each representative from every vendor we visited were very helpful and inviting.
The discounts were amazing, and they even had giveaways. As low as up to 70% off, and some prices were even negotiable. Very informal tutorials on hair and skin. Their were even complimentary manicures and pedicures provided.
Mizani, one of the vendors there whose main focus is on hair products for all hair textures, really grabbed my attention. The models really represented the diversity they provide on hair types. It was a really fun and informative section. They gave live tutorials , and explained each product vividly.
Orly, one of the vendors whom offered nail products, stood out the most. With so many beautiful colors they offered, not only colors, but nail treatments as well. They were there to bring life to the nail game! For those in the industry, as well as the ones would like to save a few coins and do their own.
America’s Beauty Show is a must to attend. It’s a very fun, but informal experience. We both really enjoyed ourselves, and recommend others to attend as well.
