Camila Cabello celebrates Havana reaching Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart: "I'm beyond over the moon"

The singer said there was a lot of screaming as she picked up her Official Number 1 Award at this year's Music Industry Trust Awards.

Camila Cabello celebrated her latest single Havana going to Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart at this year's Music Industry Trusts Award. 

The singer picked up her Official Number 1 Award at last night's ceremony, which took place in London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

Camila also performed the track along with new song Never Be The Same at this year's event, which also saw her label boss Simon Cowell in attendance alongside the likes of Mark Ronson, Paloma Faith, Manic Street Preachers and London Grammar. 

"Oh my god... I'm beyond over the moon. I'm so happy. I'm so excited!" She told Official Charts. "I'll definitely be celebrating with my team. 

"Right now I'm getting ready backstage to do a performance, but whenever we find out amazing news like this we definitely flap - we scream!" 

Camila told us she'd heard the news that Havana had reached Number 1 on a rare day off at home with her family. "We all went crazy," she said. "You have to celebrate things like this because you never know if it's going to happen again. 

"My mum screamed. My dad doesn't scream, but there were hugs - and maybe a small scream from him in a masculine, fatherly way." 

Camila is gearing up to release her debut album in early 2018. Discussing the record, she recently told us in an interview: "You only have one chance to make a debut album and at this point I have so many songs I’m passionate about.

"You know those albums where there are clearly songs that aren’t as good as the singles? I want every song to be single-worthy."

Havana is on course for a second week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, fending off competition from Post Malone’s Rockstar and Rita Ora’s Anywhere. Camila’s debut album is expected to be released in early 2018.
