Everyone’s in a fever over Camila Cabello, even Sir Elton John! On Jan. 8, the British music legend expressed his love for the Cuban American singer on Apple Music’s Beats 1 with Matt Wilkinson: “I just think she’s going to have an amazing year, cause she’s … just so much fun. She’s got a great voice, and she has a great attitude.”
The Rocket Man singer added that he “just loves” Cabello and if their paths ever cross, he’ll tell her: “You make me happy…your records make me smile.” The pianist confessed that the Havana singer’s music puts him in a buoyant mood. “There’s a vibrancy in her,” he said. “It makes me feel good, makes me want to get up and dance.”
Cabello did not take praise from the music icon lightly. On Jan. 9, she zealously wrote on Twitter: “Oh my God Elton John knows my name?!”
The former Fifth Harmony band member, who went solo in 2016, continued to express her enthusiasm — and disbelief — in an Instagram post on Jan. 10.
“This made my year and it’s only January. I love you @eltonjohn,” Cabello captioned a video she posted of the “Tiny Dancer” crooner gushing over her talent. Cabello fans were equally stoked by the longtime hitmaker’s compliment: “This is really amazing! And from someone so at the top of the game! Well done chica!,” one follower wrote. “Love him for saying beautiful words about our deserving Queen,” another added.
