Camila Cabello references her split from Fifth Harmony on her new album Familia.
In Psychofreak, the third song from the new album, which was released on Friday, Camila references her departure from the girl group in late 2016.
“Sorry couldn’t focus on the movie/Everyone says they miss the old me,” she sings. “Been on this ride since I was fifteen / I don’t blame the girls for the way it went.”
The Havana singer confirmed to Reuters that she was referencing her former bandmates with the lyrics and explained her intention behind Psychofreak.
“This song is basically about anxiety and all the different things that made up, like my journey with anxiety and starting very young in the industry,” she told the news agency.
Although Camila has had limited contact with Ally Brooke, Normani, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui since the split, she said their communication has been generally positive.
“We’ve been, like, supporting each other through DMs and stuff,” she said. “I’m, like, in a really good place with them.”
The Work From Home hitmakers announced that Camila, 25, left the group in December 2016, and they continued at four until going on indefinite hiatus in March 2018.
Psychofreak, which features Willow Smith, was released Friday as Familia’s third single.
“Psychofreak is my favorite Top 3 song on the album,” Camila wrote of the song on Instagram this week. “Pleasure to collaborate with someone I respect as much as an artist and as a person. @willowsmith let’s go.”
