Camila Cabello and Shakira have something in common: they are Latin representatives who are successful worldwide, taking culture to cross borders. As the Colombian has been in her career for longer, she ended up being one of the biggest influences for the Cuban. There is another side that is also very interesting: the veteran is proud to see a new generation doing something similar to what she did and continues to do.
This mutual admiration has become explicit recently. First, Camila Cabello gave an interview to BBC radio 2 and spoke about it:
“Shakira was one of the first albums I listened to obsessively. She was my first representationthe,” began. “At that time she was just a young Spanish-speaking pop singer who was also a songwriter. I think she was one of the first singers I admired like that, I think I was about 10 years old“, to be continued.
“I think she is extremely wonderful, she has written so many amazing songs, both in English and Spanish. That album she was singing in Spanish was one of my favorites.”

Shakira heard this speech from Camila Cabello and was outwardly cute directing a post to the young woman on Twitter. She spared no praise!
“The admiration is mutual Camila Cabello! You are an incredible example of an artist and a woman!” – Shakira
What an honor, isn’t it? The Cuban won in life receiving the recognition of an idol!
