LISTEN: Camila Cabello drops new songs ‘Shameless’, ‘Liar’
Camila Cabello released two new tracks last Thursday, Sept. 5 — her first solo releases since 2018. The new tracks, “Shameless” and “Liar” will be included in her upcoming album second album entitled “Romance”.
“So many mornings I woke up confused/ In my dreams I do anything I want to you/ My emotions are naked they’re taking me out of my mind/ Right now I’m shameless/ Screaming my lungs out for ya,” she sings on the spare, emotional “Shameless”, which arrived along with a music video.
The Henry Scholfield-directed clip shows Cabello crawling across the floor of a courtyard before flames appear, walking the streets in a white dress, expressing her passion to a woman priest in a Catholic confessional and dancing with a group of lookalikes in identical red dresses.
With Latin and jazz-inflected rhythms, “Liar” has a more upbeat feel, as Cabello sings about not being able to resist a lover: “I said I won’t lose control, I don’t want it/ I said I won’t get too close but I can’t stop it/ Oh no, there you go making me a liar/ Got me begging you for more/ Oh no there I go, startin’ up a fire.”
“These songs are basically the story of my life the past couple years and the stories I’ve accumulated – I knew for a long time I wanted my album to be called Romance because these stories are about falling in love,” the singer said about the songs.
The two tracks come after “Señorita”, Cabello’s chart-topping collaboration with Shawn Mendes. Following her first big solo hit, 2017’s “Havana”, she released her debut solo album, “Camila”, last January.
