For pop megastars in the making, January is the month to look for.
Two years ago, at this time, Justin Bieber gave an all-time record on Billboard’s Hot 100: his tropical-house smash “Sorry”. After sitting at No. 2 for eight weeks before finally rising to the top, Bieber’s eight-week wait to ring the bell matched a 2004 mark set by Outkast’s “The Way You Move” (also a midwinter hit). And this week, the even younger but no less promising Camila Cabello to top it off, hitting No. 1 for after seven weeks stay in the runner-up slot.
Camila’s “Havana,” with rapper Young Thug, stayed at No. 2 through most of November-17, December-17, and January-18, bleeding not one but two chart-toppers—Post Malone’s team-up with 21 Savage, “Rockstar,” and Ed Sheeran’s duet with Beyoncé, “Perfect.”
Cabello finally sees her fruition as “Havana” slips into the No. 1 slot.

In case anyone doubts, Cabelo’s pop trajectory is seriously unique and stunning. With her debut solo album Camila, she topped the chart, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, which likely boosted “Havana’s” own Hot 100 fortunes. The album’s debut was inspiring, because as recently as a week ago, Cabello’s album was predicted to be in a cut-throat race with the chart-topping soundtrack to the Hugh Jackman movie musical The Greatest Showman. Instead, Camila topped the expectations and bringing to close Showman conveniently. As Billboard points out, “Camila’s eponymous disc enters the record books as one of a handful of No. 1 albums by solo women who early on charted with a group—from Big Brother and the Holding Company’s Janis Joplin to the Fugees’ Lauryn Hill to No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani”.
stunning morning acoustics of Camilla your way!
