Camila Cabello has been inspired by Bruno Mars to “step up her game”.
The former Fifth Harmony singer – who is gearing up to release her debut solo album – got to support the ‘Uptown Funk’ hitmaker on his recent tour ’24K Magic World Tour’ and one of the things that she took on board from watching him perform each night, was how important it is to be “realistic” with yourself in order to get to “the next level”.
Speaking to the latest issue of tmrw magazine – for which Camila was photographed by Andreas Yiasoumi on the cover – Camilla explained: “One of the things I learnt from the Bruno tour is just you know, being realistic with yourself and being like man I need to step up my game, or I need to work a lot harder to get on that level.
“Sometimes it’s real, you have to check yourself. Bruno is obviously, you know leagues ahead of where I am, but I’m saying even short term.
“Let’s say you’re in school or at an awards show or something and you’re like wow this person is killing it.
“It might hurt but you have to be realistic with yourself and be like yeah, they freaking killed it.
“But you know what? Next time I’m gonna step up my game. It’s about being constructive with yourself, but I think that’s normal, its human.”
The ‘Havana’ hitmaker – who quit the ‘Work from Home’ group in December 2016 – says her debut solo record is very “romantic” and influenced by her parents’ favourite Spanish music and singer/songwriters such as Ed Sheeran and John Mayer.
