"Crying in the Club" is the debut solo single by Cuban-American singer and songwriter Camila Cabello. It was written by Cabello herself, Sia, and Benny Blanco and produced by Blanco, Happy Perez and Cashmere Cat. A mid-tempo tropical pop and dance track, it was originally released on May 19, 2017 as the lead single from her debut studio album, Camila, then titled The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.

Despite being generally well received from critics, it only managed to attain moderate chart success and thus, was omitted from the album.[1][2] Its music video premiered the same date. It is her first release as a solo artist since her departure from the American girl group Fifth Harmony.

Background and release

Cabello previously collaborated with producers Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat on the latter's song "Love Incredible", recorded in May 2016. Following Cabello's departure from the girl group Fifth Harmony, and after years of writing in her downtime, she began writing songs in earnest for her debut. In November 2016, during a writing session with Blanco, singer-songwriter Sia conceived the concept for a demo, and both composed the song. After Blanco offered her "Crying in the Club", Cabello rewrote the song's bridge and recorded the track. "It had a message about healing through the power of music," she said later, "That theme was a key part of what I wanted for my album."[3]

The song was released on May 19, 2017 to digital music stores and streaming services, following several music collaborations by Cabello, including "Bad Things" with Machine Gun Kelly–which reached the top 10 on several Billboard charts. "Crying in the Club" was serviced to US contemporary hit radio on May 23, 2017.[4]
