Global superstar Camila Cabello has unveiled her highly anticipated new album, C,XOXO, released under Interscope Records/Polydor in the UK. She’s never been one to play it safe, and this album is no exception – a sonic and visual revolution. Drawing deeply from her Miami roots, Cabello collaborates with renowned producers El Guincho (FKA Twigs, Rosalía) and Jasper Harris (Jack Harlow, Post Malone) to create a project that transcends traditional pop genres.

C,XOXO features a diverse array of guest artists, including Playboi Carti, Lil Nas X, and Drake, promising a listening experience that defies expectations. Cabello’s newfound creative freedom is palpable on this album, thanks in large part to El Guincho’s expert guidance – the outcome is a work that’s at once deeply personal and boldly innovative.

Inspired by the bold work of street artist Chito, she dropped a limited-edition capsule collection featuring his iconic cartoon dog. The lyric “I’m a dog, woof woof” from the track Chanel No. 5 ties into this collaboration, with Chito creating a bespoke C,XOXO Dog icon for the collection, symbolizing the album’s artistic ethos.

The album release follows the success of Cabello’s latest single, Chanel No. 5, where the celebration of female empowerment gets turbocharged by witty lyrics that point to her progress. Picture this: Sultry rhythms, sultry moves – the video’s dancers bring the song’s dark allure to life with their slick, confident choreography. Preceding singles, I LUV IT featuring Playboi Carti and He Knows featuring Lil Nas X, offer fans a deeper look into the world of C,XOXO.

Cabello has been actively promoting C,XOXO with numerous appearances, including a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Miami, the bright lights city that fueled her album’s inspiration, was the backdrop for a sultry B.O.A.T. party where she gave fans an exclusive album preview. Recently, she was honored for her Global Impact by Billboard at the Latin Women in Music awards ceremony.

As part of her promotional tour, Cabello collaborated with 7-Eleven, hosting a special event at a C,XOXO branded store in Miami. She also appeared at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity for a chat and performance with Complex. Cabello’s calendar is packed with headlining spots at some of the globe’s most iconic festivals – think Rock in Rio Lisbon, Morocco’s Mawazine, Denmark’s Tinderbox.

C,XOXO symbolizes a musical coming-of-age for Camila Cabello, as she successfully bridges disparate styles and forges a distinctive voice that’s all her own. Two factors are combining to create a listening experience unlike any other: boundary-pushing collaborations and an fearless attitude that throws out the rulebook, with the entire world watching – and eager to listen.
