Camila Cabello, 'The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving'

Cabello was the breakout star of Fifth Harmony before she quit the group last year, in part because she didn't like their creative process: "A&R would play you the songs you're going to cut that day, and then a vocal producer will tell you what you're going to sing," she says. "It's just not for me." Cabello insisted on co-writing the songs on her debut, which she says combines mainstream pop with her Latin roots. She drew heavily on relationship drama, from a crushing breakup more than a year ago to an encounter with "a famous boy I met at an after-Grammys party." She adds, "I was using writing as therapy. The music went through a hell of a ride, because I did, too."
