It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for!

Camila Cabello has finally announced the release date for her debut solo album, and we couldn’t be more excited. The full album will be available January 12th, but starting this Thursday, it can be pre-ordered with two instant tracks titled “Never Be The Same” and “Real Friends.” Let the countdown begin!

Even though her album was originally called “The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving,” the 20-year-old former Fifth Harmony member decided to change it to focus on her current, happier state of mind. In a recent Instagram post, she explained why she ended up naming it “Camila,” after herself:

“I decided to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended. It started with somebody else’s story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself,” she wrote.

to my Camilizers…. my debut album is finally finished. now i'm trying to steady my heartbeat!!!!!!! thank you for being so patient with me this year, i can't wait for you to hear what has been the soundtrack to the past year of my life… all of these songs have special memories behind them, and i'm not gonna lie, it feels emotional letting them go, feels like the end of a chapter… i decided to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended. it started with somebody else's story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself. my album is gonna be available for pre order this Thursday, and i'm putting out two instant grat tracks with it…. one is called never be the same, and one is called real friends. it's in your hands January 12 love you guys so much, Camila
