SUMMARY

Camila Cabello's song choices reflect her artistic priorities.

Even though 'Señorita' is super popular, she ranked it third.

The singer said it's not exactly what she imagined artistically.

Señorita, Camila Cabello’s hit song with Shawn Mendes, has gotten more than 1.7 billion views on YouTube. Despite its huge success, the song doesn’t fully connect with the songstress as an artist. She made this revelation recently in an interview while ranking her top 5 best singles, unsure of what’s next.

Cabello’s choice of songs shows she’s evolving big time as an artist. She’s focusing on songs that feel ‘fun,’ signaling a new direction. Fans will be happy to see her exploring new ideas and enjoying herself, which means she’s growing as a musician.

Camila Cabello’s Top 5 Songs, But Señorita Is Not Her Favorite Pick

Camila Cabello ranks her singles as a reflection of her artistic journey. She places Crying in the Club at number five because it feels more like a Sia song than her own. Havana, which takes the number two spot, is credited by Cabello for giving her the confidence to follow her instincts. My Oh My lands at number four due to its catchy melody, though Cabello admits it’s not her personal favorite.

Señorita stands out as the most revealing example. Cabello’s song choices reveal what matters most to her as an artist. Even though the song has over 1.7 billion views on YouTube and is a big hit, she places it third on her list. She admits it doesn’t match her artistic vision very closely. The 27-year-old said in an interview with Capital Official (via Instagram): 

Its not really like the me that I feel the most creatively fulfilled by.

Cabello’s latest work shows her love for creativity. Placing I Luv It with Playboi Carti at number 1 reminds her of Havana. This similarity hints that she’s returning to what she loves—focusing more on expressing herself than just aiming for commercial success.

Camila Cabello told BBC that she’s always optimistic when she releases new music. However, the singer admitted she was a bit more nervous than usual about her latest album, C,XOXO. She went on to say:

I have a very naïve attitude before I put music out. I think because I love it so much and I think it’s good, everybody’s going to love it.

C,XOXO has a more experimental sound and features collaborations with rappers like Drake, Lil Nas X and Playboi Carti. Cabello stated she took a bit of a risk with this album, but she’s happy she did.
