Camila surpasses one billion streams becoming first album of 2018 to be certified Platinum
Global chart-topping singer/songwriter Camila Cabello has joined forces with multi-platinum-selling country breakout artist Kane Brown to release a new version of Cabello’s growing smash hit “Never Be The Same.” The genre-crossing track is available now.
The stunning collaboration combines each artist’s unique star power that separately has propelled them to the top of multiple charts. Both artists are currently surging with Top 5 singles – Brown with his stirring ballad “Heaven,” and Cabello with the platinum-plus initial release of “Never Be The Same.” Last month Cabello released the sultry video for the hit song which is the second single from her recently-crowned platinum debut album, Camila, the first album of 2018 to be certified platinum. The song is currently No. 2 at Top 40 Radio, with Rolling Stone hailing it as “Camila Cabello at her best, even at her most tormented…” Genre-busting Brown deftly lends his “viscous and rich, low and wide” (NY Times) vocals to the new track.
This release continues Cabello’s culture-bridging domination of the pop landscape. Her sold-out headline Never Be the Same Tour winds down its North America trek in the next week with a slate of Canadian and East Coast U.S. shows on tap before heading overseas in June. Soon after, Cabello will join Taylor Swift this summer on the star’s eagerly awaited Reputation tour. Last week, Cabello added to her growing list of industry accolades, receiving four 2018 Billboard Music Award nominations: Top New Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Collaboration, and a Billboard Chart Achievement nod. Along with her nominations, she will also perform live on the Billboard Awards, which will air Sunday, May 20th at 5 pm PST/8 pm EST on NBC.
Cabello’s sold out Never Be The Same Tour continues with shows in Toronto and Montreal this weekend, then heads on to Boston on April 29th, Philadelphia on May 1st, and New York City on May 4th, with shows scheduled in the UK and Amsterdam for early June.
