Camila Cabello has been dominating the charts with her hit single “Havana,” off of her forthcoming self-titled album Camila. The track — an homage to her Cuban roots — not only stands at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, but is now making the singer a record-breaker in the United Kingdom.

The former Fifth Harmony member has the longest-running No. 1 single from a female artist in the U.K. for the decade. Last week, “Havana” took the No. 1 spot in the singles chart for its fifth successive week, tying Adele’s 2011 smash hit “Someone Like You.”

The Pharrell Williams–produced track didn’t only ascend the charts in the U.K., but also earned the top spot on Pop Radio in the U.S. Her hit’s staggering success prompted Cabello to share her excitement and gratitude on social media. “People kept saying to us that this song was never gonna work at radio because they didn’t think people would ‘get it,'” she wrote on Twitter. “Today Havana is 1 at pop radio, thanks to my amazing fan army and my lovely friends at radio for believing and supporting.”

The Cuban-American singer, who was also named Billboard‘s 2017 Breakthrough Artist for Women in Music, hopes to reach No. 1 on the magazine’s Hot 100 chart. On Twitter, she urged her followers to listen to the track: “GUYS, we’re so close to number 1!!!!! let’s do this!!”
