CAMILA CABELLO Debuts Orchestral Version Of "Consequences"!
Honestly, how can we not love Camila Cabello more than we already do? The 21-year-old hitmaker proved that she's all about becoming the most honest representation of herself through her music.
And true to her words, the Cuban-American artist debuted the orchestral version of "Consequences" despite people telling her it was "risky" to do so. The track will serve as the final single off her self-titled debut album.
"People always want you to go with a song that sounds like something that’s already on the radio. It would be playing it safe for me to make a song that sounds like 'Havana,'" Camila revealed in an Instagram post prior to the release of the track's new version. "To me, my goal is to challenge myself by not doing what feels predictable or obvious."
a new version of consequences called consequences (orchestra) is gonna come out tomorrow night at midnight ET, and it’s going to be the song I choose as my last single from my album- a lot of people say ballads like this are “risky” and with every single i’ve picked i get looks like i have three heads, because people always want you to go with a song that sounds like something that’s already on the radio. it would be playing it safe for me to make a song that sounds like Havana or another uptempo song, but to me, my goal is to challenge myself by not doing what feels predictable or obvious, to do things that excite me, and give you the most honest representation of who I am through music. i know sometimes it’ll work and other times it’ll fail, but thats okay with me. no matter what this song does, i wanted to close this era finishing on a song that makes you feel, that makes you think about someone you loved and lost, that makes you think about what it’s like to love someone so deeply. if this era tugs on your heart strings even a little bit, that’s all i care about. the video comes out very soon and it’s the one I’m proudest of so far, and I’ll be performing this at the AMA’s in a couple days. love only, Camila
As if that wasn't enough, Camila also generously shared on her social media channels a short clip from the official music video of "Consequences" co-starring Dylan Sprouse. The accompanying visuals will officially arrive on October 10. See the preview below.
let the magic begin...... consequences (orchestra) is out tonight at midnight ET and the video with my friend @dylansprouse comes out on Wednesday 🌙 when i was thinking of what i wanted for the video for this song, i thought of how it felt trying to let someone go. seeing the memories and traces of them in every familiar place. i remembered the Pablo neruda quote... “loving is so short, forgetting is so long...”, and the journey of moving on. that was what inspired this story. it’s really close to my heart, and the most excited I’ve ever been about making a video. this Wednesday 🌹
