Camila Cabello Teases Her Blockbuster “Havana” Video
Camila Cabello shared the first glimpse of her “Havana” video yesterday (October 22) and it looks like a blockbuster. Directed by the legendary Dave Meyers (he has helmed everything from Missy Elliott’s “Work It” to Katy Perry’s “Swish Swish”), the visual appears to offer a film-within-a-film scenario. The rising pop star snacks on popcorn in a movie theater while watching a black-and-white movie called Havana, starring herself and collaborator Young Thug. The expensive-looking video drops October 24.
After coming up short with “Crying In The Club,” Camila struck gold with “Havana.” The hypnotic bop, which cleverly capitalizes on the popularity of Latin-pop in the wake of crossover smashes like “Despacito” and “Mi Gente,” has already wreaked havoc on the charts around the globe — climbing all the way to number two in Australia and the UK. “Havana” is destined to do the same in the US, currently sitting at number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100. Expect it to improve on that considerably after the video drops. Watch a preview up top.
