The untold truth of Camila Cabello
Camila Cabello bet on herself and won. The Cuba-born pop star left her cushy gig with Fifth Harmony during the band's peak in 2016 to pursue a solo career and the gamble paid off, with Cabello scoring a No. 1 song and No. 1 album in her solo debut.
The music industry has taken notice, including Sir Elton John. He told Apple Music's Beats 1 (via People) that Cabello's records make him happy and make him smile, which, wow, really? That's high praise. And to think, she got her start on X-Factor and only managed to come in third with her 5H bandmates. But you probably already knew that. Here are some facts about Cabello, one of pop music's fast rising stars, that you may not know.
