Artist makes history as first solo artist to have two songs simultaneously debut on Top 40 radio chart week of release
Two-time GRAMMY Award-nominated multi-platinum and chart-topping singer/songwriter Camila Cabello shares the video for her new single “Liar.”
The visual follows last week’s release of her singles “Shameless” and “Liar” via SYCO/Epic Records. Making for a momentous return by the songstress, the songs have already amassed 20+ million streams combined since release last Friday, while the video for “Shameless” has surpassed 16 million streams. A true feat, Cabello just made history with the songs as the first solo artist to have two songs simultaneously debut at Top 40 Radio week of release.
Making for a momentous return by the songstress, the new songs start the era of her mega-anticipated second album, Romance. It represents her most personal music to date, drawing directly from autobiographical experiences and translating them into unforgettable songs.
Next up, she performs for Saturday Night Live for the very first time on October 12th on NBC. She has received a total of three nominations in top categories at the People’s Choice Awards on November 10th broadcast on E!. These include “Female Artist of 2019,” “Song of 2019 – ‘Señorita’” and “Music Video of 2019 – ‘Señorita’.”
Cabello has had a whirlwind of a summer as she has smashed a series of records. She broke the record for “most monthly listeners for a female artist in Spotify history” with 61.2 million. Meanwhile, her GRAMMY Award-nominated multi-platinum Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 megahit “Havana” [feat. Young Thug] became “the world’s most streamed song of all-time by a female lead artist.”
Just last week, Cabello shut down the MTV VMAs with the debut performance of “Señorita” with Shawn Mendes. Not only did the song soar to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it also stands out as “the most-streamed song of the summer on Spotify,” “second fastest song in history to surpass 100 million streams on Spotify,” and “the biggest single-day debut for a male-female duet in Spotify history.” Additionally, it took home “Best Collaboration” and “Best Cinematography” at the VMAs and “Choice Summer Song” at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards. At 22-years-old, Cabello is the youngest person to earn two No. 1’s on the Hot 100 since Justin Bieber in 2017 and the youngest woman since Rihanna in 2010. “Señorita” marks her fourth No. 1 at Pop Radio and her second Hot 100 No. 1.
Speaking to the artist’s international dominance, her full-length debut, Camila, soared to No. 1 on iTunes in 109 markets. It also went Top 5 in 113 markets and Top 10 in 115 markets. Not to mention, it ascended to No. 1 worldwide in Canada, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands and to the Top 3 in the UK, Finland, Australia, Ireland, Belgium, and Switzerland.
To date, her cumulative audio streams exceed 8.8 billion and video views surpass 3.5 billion.
