Camila Cabello is always in touch with her fans and made the announcement of her new album on social media. "To my Camilizers.... my debut album is finally finished," she told her fans on Instagram. "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..."

Camila's album was originally titled "The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving," but the singer is now explaining why it's simply called "Camila". "I decided to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended," she wrote. "It started with somebody else's story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself."

In an interview with Zane Lowe, Cabello said that her album is not only having a title change, but the tracklist will be different as well as she has a different vision for it now. "Everything that I talked about it in an interview, it just made it really difficult to really move on," she said. "I don’t want to give that power over somebody else — that the whole first album revolves around them and this bad situation. It's giving that too much power." She also added, "I think that everything happens in a parallel way, where it was me taking power over the title and control over what the album was about and me just taking power over my own life.”

She also said: "I feel like it’s important for me as a new artist, and especially people hearing ‘Havana’ and more people kind of knowing who I am, I think that it’s really important that the message is, like, super consistent."

In an interview with Glamour magazine earlier this year, she said that she wanted to write songs for immigrants. "Right now I’m in the process of writing about our whole journey," Cabello told the publication. "I want to make a love song for immigrants. That word, immigrant, has such a negative connotation—I can just imagine all the little girls who have dreams of coming here and feel unwanted. It inspires me in my music to do my best to give [them] the light that I have. I want to be what people think of when they think of America—a person who, no matter what her first language was or what her religion is, can see her dreams come to life if she works hard enough."
