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.

Congrats, Camila!??

It’s Been 19 Years Since The GRAMMYs Has Had This Many Latino Performers

The last time there were four Latino performers at the Grammys was in 1999. Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, Poncho Sanchez, and Ibrahim Ferrer took the stage to prime the Grammy audience for the first ever Latin Grammys being held the following year. Now, 19 years later, four performers are once again showing that Latinos are a force in music and everyone should be paying attention. No doubt everyone tuning in on Jan. 28 will see Latinos showing the world how it’s done.

The Recording Academy, which hosts the Grammys, got so much love when they announced their super diverse nominees.

Not only is this the first time sine 1999 that we have four Latino performers. This is also the first time since 1999 that no white men have been nominated for the highly coveted Album of the Year trophy. The nominees for Album of the Year are “Awaken, My Love!” by Childish Gambino, “4:44” by Jay-Z, “DAMN.” by Kendrick Lamar, “Melodrama” by Lorde, and “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars.

And the announcement of all the Latino talent performing got people even more hyped.

Ayyye! ??

Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi are performing their global smash hit “Despacito”.

“Despacito” took over the music world, becoming the most streamed song of all time. You might still be sick of the song but there is no denying that it put Latin music on the map last year. Now, all those folks tuning into will get another taste of the Caribbean-inspired masterpiece.

Can we get a “¡wepa!”?

Congratulations, boys!

Cardi B and Bruno Mars are also taking their duet “Finesse” out for a spin on the Grammy stage.

No need for anything more than the lyrics to explain the greatness of this performance.

“Ooh, don’t we look good together? / There’s a reason why they watch all night long / Yeah, know we’ll turn heads forever / So tonight I’m gonna show you off.”

Fans of these two artists cannot wait to dance around their living rooms during the big night.

Just two more weeks and we can all forget about our problems as Bruno Mars’ smooth dance moves lull us into a meditative trance.
