Billboard Explains: Camila Cabello’s Ride on the Charts

Camila Cabello is dropping her fourth solo album, C,XOXO, on Friday (June 28), and to celebrate, we’re looking back on the pop star’s journey on the charts in the latest Billboard Explains video.

We were first introduced to Cabello as a member of Fifth Harmony following their success on The X Factor in 2012. They made their chart debut with single “Miss Movin’ On,” which peaked at No. 76 on the Hot 100. The group had four top 40 hits on the tally including “Sledgehammer” at No. 40, “Worth It” at No. 12, “All in My Head (Flex)” at No. 24 and “Work From Home” at No. 4.

As a solo artist, Cabello earned her first solo Hot 100 hit in 2015 with her Shawn Mendes collaboration, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which peaked at No. 20. She went on to have four top 10 hits — “Bad Things” with Machine Gun Kelly at No. 4 and “Never Be the Same” at No. 6 — including two Hot 100 chart toppers with “Havana” and her second Mendes collaboration, “Señorita.”

Check out Billboard‘s full breakdown of Cabello’s chart journey in the video above.
