The wait is finally over.
Camila Cabello shocked fans when she quitFifth Harmony in December and announced she was going solo. Collaborations with Cashmere Cat (“Love Incredible“) and Pitbull and J Balvin (“Hey Ma“) followed, and at midnight, she finally dropped her debut single, “Crying in the Club.”
“You think that you’ll die without him / You know that’s a lie that you tell yourself / You fear that you lay alone forever now / Ain’t true, ain’t true, ain’t true, no / So put your arms around me tonight / Let the music lift you up like you’ve never been so high / Open up your heart to me / Let the music lift you up like you’ve never been this free / ‘Til you feel the sunrise,” she sings. “Let the music warm your body like the heat of a thousand fires / The heat of a thousand fires.”
“Ain’t no crying in the club (hey, hey) / Let the beat carry your tears as they fall baby / Ain’t no crying in the club (hey, hey) / With a little faith, your tears turn to ecstasy,” Cabello croons in the chorus. “Ain’t no crying in the club / Ain’t no crying in the club / Ain’t no crying in the club.”
The song—off her album, The Hurting, the Healing, the Loving—was written by Benny Blanco, Cabello and Sia. Blanco produced the song with Matt Beckley, Cashmere Cat and Happy Perez.
Snippets of the video were teased on Cabello’s Instagram throughout the week.
“I’m so excited to share the first music from my album The Hurting, the Healing, The Loving. This video summarizes the message of my journey over the past couple years, from darkness to light, from lost to found,” the 20-year-old told Complex days before the song and video were released. “The director, Emil Nava, and I are put our hearts into this and we hope you like it!”
Earlier in the week, Cabello told her 10.5 million Instagram followers what else they can expect from her solo endeavor. “The story behind the album starts with the second song that you’ll hear called ‘I have questions’ which I started writing in a hotel bathroom on tour a little over a year ago,” she wrote. “i was completely broken during that time, i was in the kind of pain that’s uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud…i couldn’t write another song for 6 months because writing meant i had to feel everything, and i wasn’t ready to do that yet. so when i graduated from hotel bathrooms to studios to make my first album, i was making music about everything BUT what i was going through, it was like a secret burning on my tongue and for some reason i could not get myself to say it…….”
Cabello will perform the song for the first time at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Afterward, she will treat fans to an encore performance of her new single “I Have Questions” exclusively for Xfinity X1 customers.

According to TMZ, Jill, Jessa, Jinger and JoyDuggar have all filed a lawsuit against the Springdale, Ark. over police documents that were leaked in 2015.
The lawsuit alleges that the investigative reports that were conducted back in 2006 took place when all four were under age, therefore they were told that the reports would only be made available to law enforcement and child service officers if need be.
The sisters also claim that In Touch magazine filed a Freedom of Information Act request back when all of the drama was unfolding in the spotlight and that as many as eight stories were published about the investigation.
The documents describe how, under Arkansas state law, any specific information (namely, the identity of the victims) related to the sexual abuse of a child is prohibited from being released by police.
Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy are also reportedly suing the police and the publication.
Two years ago, during a guest appearance on The Kelly File, Jessa opened up for the first time about her brother’s actions.
“It was very wrong. I’m not going to justify anything that he did or say it was ok, not permissible, but I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying. I’m like that is so overboard and a lie really, I mean people get mad at me for saying that but I can say this because I was one of the victims. So I can speak out and I can say this and set the record straight here.”
She added, “In Josh’s case, he was a boy, a young boy in puberty and a little too curious about girls. And that got him into to some trouble. And he made some bad choices, but really the extent of it was mild, inappropriate touching, on fully clothed victims, most of it while girls were sleeping.”
Jill interjected during the interview by saying, “I was scared. I [was] sad because this was my older brother, who I love a lot, and so it’s like, conflicting.”
Meanwhile, at the time, Josh issues a statement to People apologizing for his behavior.
“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my father and friends.
