Camila Cabello has revealed her reasons behind leaving the girl-group Fifth Harmony at the end of 2016. In an interview with The New York Times, the ‘Havana’ singer has acknowledged the public tensions between herself and the group.

She’s said that things kicked off after her collaboration with Shawn Mendes in 2015, this was the first time that any member of Fifth Harmony had released solo material.

In addition to this she had also asked to write lyrics for Fifth Harmony songs and was turned down. She also wanted to work on her solo album whilst still in the group, but this resulted in the other members shutting her out.

“I was just curious and I wanted to learn and I saw all these people around me making music, writing songs and being so free…I just wanted to do that and it did not work.”

“It became clear that it was not possible to do solo stuff and be in the group at the same time,” she said.

She also added: “If anyone wants to explore their individuality, it’s not right for people to tell you no.”

Camila’s hit ‘Havana’ recently became the longest running female No.1 single since Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’, the tune is on her self-titled debut album which was released on January 12th.
