Camila Cabello’s third studio album, Family, expected to arrive on Friday (April 8). Ahead of its release, the “Bam Bam” singer revealed in an interview with Reuters that one of the tracks on the album refers to his separation from Fifth Harmony in 2016 to embark on his solo career.
Cabello has confirmed that the third track from his upcoming album, “Psychofreak,” is about how things ended with his former bandmates. “I don’t blame the girls for the way it went,” she sings on the track and told Reuters the lyrics are about Fifth Harmony. Cabello also shared with the news agency, “This song is basically about anxiety and all the different things that made up, like my journey with anxiety and starting very young in the industry.”
Although the 25-year-old has limited contact with Ally Brooke, Normani, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui, she said her relationship with women was generally positive. “We’ve been, like, supporting each other through DMs and stuff,” Cabello said. “I’m like. in a really good place with them.
Cabello previously described Family as a celebration of his community of close friends and loved ones. The former Fifth Harmony member also revealed that she recorded part of the album as she struggled with her mental health.
“I was terribly anxious and I was in the the worst state of mental health ever,“ she explained in an interview with People. “And then I took a break at the start of the pandemic. I started therapy [and] try to feel better.
She continued: “For me it was, if this process doesn’t help me feel better, and if it’s not me being honest, vulnerable and unfiltered, I don’t really see how. it’s going to happen,” she said. “It was my intention, it was just to be myself, whatever it was like at the time.”
Now that Cabello’s anxiety is under control, she says she’s “living my truth and I’m speaking my truth.”
