Camila Cabello Celebrates Latin Grammy 2017 Nomination The Best Possible Way

Camila Cabello became a solo artist less than a year ago when she abruptly left Fifth Harmony and she has just now received her first nomination at the Latin Grammys 2017. The Latin star got the nod for her collaboration in "Hey Ma," the lead track for the latest installment of "The Fast & The Furious" franchise. Cabello took to Instagram to celebrate the mention by jumping on the bed and we can feel that great excitement that this accomplishment is bringing to her life. Watch her reaction below and tell us what you think!

Camila Cabello received a Latin Grammy nomination in the Best Urban Song category for the Spanish version of "Hey Ma." The collaboration included J Balvin Phillip KemboJohnny Michell and Pitbull. That song will be competing with "A Chapa é Quente" by Emicida & Rael, "Coqueta" by Luis Díaz, Alejandro Estrada, Bruno Og & Jonathan Torres, "El Amante" by Nicky Jam, Juan Diego Medina Vélez & Cristhian Mena, "Papa" by Lápiz Consciente & Vico C and  “Somos Anormales” by Rafael Arcaute, Igor Koshkendey & Residente.

Cabello left Fifth Harmony at the end of 2016 with news delivered to fans via a Twitter message from the band's official account. “After 4 and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representative that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony. We wish her well," the statement read.

Cabello was quick to react and released her own statement where she said: “The girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much needed conversations about the future that we had during tour. Saying that they were just informed through my representatives that I was ‘leaving the group’ is simply not true. Just like the other girls said in their statement about their plans, I had also planned to continue with my own solo endeavors in the new year, but I did not intend to end things with Fifth Harmony this way. As sad as it is to see this chapter ending this way, I will continue to root them all on as individuals and as a group. I wish nothing but the best for them.”

Fifth Harmony then fired back in another statement that read: “We have spent the past year and a half (since her initial solo endeavor) trying to communicate to her and her team all of the reasons why we felt Fifth Harmony deserved at least one more album of her time, given the success of this past year that we’d all worked so hard for."

Following the drama Cabello said that she felt sexualized while in the band. “Especially with being a girl group, there’s been a lot of times where people have tried to sexualize us to just get more attention,” she said. “Unfortunately, sex sells. There’s definitely been times where there’s stuff that I have not been comfortable with and I’ve had to put my foot down…I feel like it’s been tricky because we’ve had to grow into ourselves while being in front of the world and while making songs that did have a lot of sexual undertones.”
