10 Reasons Camila Cabello Might Be This Year's Best Artist

October 22, 2018
Camila Cabello couldn't have made a more memorable MTV EMA debut (as a solo artist) last year. She brought Havana to the stage for her epic performance of her international hit and then won the Best Pop award. This year, the spotlight is really on her. She's the most-nominated artist with nods in six EMA categories, including Best Artist.
 
Is she the best artist of 2018? Here are ten reasons she might be:

1.  Camila's self-titled debut album, Camila, was released in January of 2018 and our playlists will never be the same. The album went on to be platinum certified in five countries.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

to my Camilizers.... my debut album is finally finished. now i'm trying to steady my heartbeat!!!!!!! thank you for being so patient with me this year, i can't wait for you to hear what has been the soundtrack to the past year of my life... all of these songs have special memories behind them, and i'm not gonna lie, it feels emotional letting them go, feels like the end of a chapter... i decided to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended. it started with somebody else's story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself. my album is gonna be available for pre order this Thursday, and i'm putting out two instant grat tracks with it.... one is called never be the same, and one is called real friends. it's in your hands January 12 🦋 love you guys so much, Camila

8.  Her video for "Never Be the Same" was the perfect follow up to "Havana." It showed a new sultry and stripped-down side of Camila.
