Camila Cabello, whose latest album, The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving, comes out this fall, performed her hit single, “Havana” at the 2017 Latin American Music Awards last night. The Pharrell-produced track has been making its way up the Billboard Hot 100 chart since its release this summer — it’s currently at No. 20.
The Cuban-American artist went on stage with a fringe-covered jumpsuit and showed off her impressive salsa-dancing skills. For the Spanish-speaking audience, Cabello, 20, sang a bilingual version of the sultry song, which was originally produced in English.

Fans shared their excitement on social media, especially Latinos, who were proud to see Cabello embrace her Latin roots. “Love that you’re giving Latinos a voice and recognition!” one user tweeted. Another added: “The Spanish version of Havana that we’ve been waiting for, thank u @Camila_Cabello! Everything is amazing.”
The performance comes on the heels of the newly released video for “Havana,” which features social stars Lele Pons and LeJuan James. The music video, which has already garnered 23 million view, begins with a comedic telenovela-inspired skit that shows Cabello’s funny side, but ultimately goes full-blown sexy with sultry dance moves and a romantic storyline.
Discussing her upcoming album earlier this year, she said “Havana” mixes “classic Cuban sound with Hip Hop,” noting that it was produced by industry heavyweights Frank Dukes and Pharrell.
Cabello’s former group Fifth Harmony also performed at the star-studded event, taking the stage with Pitbull to rock his latest track “Por Favor.”
