Camila Cabello Filmed Herself Crying To The News That She Topped Obama’s 2017 Music Playlist
“I made a video of me crying to it and I sent it to my friends.”
On a recent visit to “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Camila Cabello celebrated the release of her debut album, “Camila.” Just a few days after the release, Cabello has already broken an iTunes record as the number one album on 99 iTunes charts around the world. On top of that, Cabello also discovered that her song “Havana” was at the top of Barack Obama’s list of favorite songs from 2016. In utter shock, Cabello sent an emotional video of her reacting to the news to her friends.
Despite the success Cabello is achieving, it’s not as special if she doesn’t have her family with her. Cabello talked to Fallon about her New Year’s Eve and why it was a bittersweet night. Although Cabello had the amazing opportunity to perform at the annual Jingle Ball concert at Madison Square Garden (where she ripped her pants during her performance), she wasn’t allowed to bring her family into the area where performers watched the ball drop. So she missed out on a special NYE tradition that she and her Cuban family participate in every year.
The Cabello family eats 12 grapes during the last 12 seconds of the New Year’s countdown. For each grape they eat they make a wish about what they want for the new year. It’s a tradition many Latinx families follow. Although this was a bitter moment for Cabello, she couldn’t be happier about all of the levels of success her music is reaching.
