Cabello, Benny Blanco, and Sia teamed up to write the song, called “Crying in the Club,” which will be featured on the singer's upcoming album The Hurt The Healing The Loving.

In a recent interview with Complex, the 20-year-old couldn't contain her excitement when sharing details about her first solo since her departure from the girl group. "I'm so excited to share the first music from my album The Hurting, the Healing, The Loving. This video summarizes the message of my journey over the past couple years, from darkness to light, from lost to found," the Cubana said. "The director, Emil Nava, and I are put our hearts into this and we hope you like it!

On Monday, the pop singer also took to Instagram to share an emotional open letter to her 10.5 million followers about the journey of her forthcoming album. “The Hurting The Healing The Loving” is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when I was lost, to a time when I found myself again,” the “Bad Things” singer wrote. “I was completely broken during that time, I was in the kind of pain that’s uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud…”

 

the first song from my forthcoming album “the hurting the healing the loving” will come out on 5.19.17.... “the hurting the healing the loving” is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when i was lost to a time when i found myself again. The story behind the album starts with the second song that you’ll hear called “I have questions” which I started writing in a hotel bathroom on tour a little over a year ago. i was completely broken during that time, i was in the kind of pain that’s uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud.... i couldn’t write another song for 6 months because writing meant i had to feel everything, and i wasn’t ready to do that yet. so when i graduated from hotel bathrooms to studios to make my first album, i was making music about everything BUT what i was going through, it was like a secret burning on my tongue and for some reason i could not get myself to say it.......
