Camila Cabello Performs Rising Hit “Havana” On ‘The Tonight Show’
Camila Cabello dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform (and chat about) “Havana.” The 20-year-old has certainly improved her stage craft since “Bad Things” — delivering a simple, well-executed dance routine with two dancers. A lot of thought went into the striking color scheme and it pays dividends. I’m not sure how live it was, and I don’t really care. It was entertaining and held my attention for the full 3:50 minutes. In her interview, the former Fifth Harmony diva revealed that “Havana” is her grandmother’s favorite song.
“This song was really special to play for her, because I have such a big part of her culture and to integrate it with the current things that I listen to was really cool,” Camila raved. “My grandma has a really visceral way of listening to music. She’s a Cuban lady, she feels it with her whole body and I played her ‘Havana’, and there’s a bit where the beat drops and she was like ‘Ay! Adios!’… I just look at her laptop and the song is on constant play, to the point where we’ll have conversations and I’ll hear ‘Havana, ooh na na’ super quietly.”
