We’ve yet to see a music video for Camila Cabello’s sultry and smooth single “Havana,” but thanks to her latest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, we have the next best thing.
Clad in a red leather jumpsuit and backed by two dancers and the coolest trumpet player we’ve ever seen, Cabello performed her new single Monday night and brought the fire to the fall season. ¡Ay, Dios mío!
The Cuban-born, Miami-raised singer teamed up with rapper Young Thug for the spicy single “Havana,” although the rapper was absent from Monday nights’ performance. Co-written by Pharrell, “Havana” has both Cabello and Atlanta native Young Thug representing their roots, with Caballo singing “He took me back to East Atlanta, na-na-na / Half of my heart is in Havana.”
The exotic track is the second single Cabello has released this year that celebrates the singers’ background, with her Spanish influence first heard on “Hey Ma” with J Balvin and Pitbull.
In addition to performing the new single on the famous stage at 30 Rockefellar, Cabello also remixed “Havana” in her dressing room earlier in the day. Sharing Monday night’s Tonight Show bill with Madonna, Cabello performed a version of “Havana” that paid tribute to the Material Girl.
Cabello also sat down with Fallon to discuss last year’s less-than-sexy Halloween. The pop star attended a Halloween party at Taylor Swift’s house and, no surprise, found herself surrounded by supermodels like Gigi Hadid and Martha Hunt, who opted for ‘hot’ versions of costumes. Cabello decided to branch out on her own and instead went as an old grandmother who had lost her cat. It’s actually pretty hilarious.
Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, two ‘hot guys’ showed up and Cabello quickly ditched her costume. This may be the most relateable story ever told by a celeb. We’re looking forward to seeing what the singer dresses up as this year.
