(April 27, 2018 — Los Angeles, CA) — Global chart-topping singer/songwriter Camila Cabello has joined forces with multi-platinum-selling country breakout artist Kane Brown to release a new version of Camila’s growing smash hit “Never Be The Same.” The genre-crossing track is out today and already setting social media ablaze. Listen above.
The stunning collaboration combines each artist’s unique star power that separately has propelled them to the top of multiple charts. Both artists are currently surging with Top 5 singles – Brown with his stirring ballad “Heaven,” and Camila with the platinum-plus initial release of “Never Be The Same.” Last month Camila released the sultry video for the hit song, which you can watch below. It is the second single from her recently-crowned platinum debut album, CAMILA, the first album of 2018 to be certified platinum. The song is currently #2 at Top 40 Radio, with Rolling Stone hailing it as ‘Camila Cabello at her best, even at her most tormented…’. Genre-busting Brown deftly lends his “viscous and rich, low and wide” (NY Times) vocals to the new track.
Never Be The Same
Camila’s triumphant cross-country trek is buoyed by her record-setting debut album which topped the charts in the U.S. and around the world. CAMILA debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart the same week her enduring mega-hit “Havana” (featuring Young Thug) reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She is the first female artist in 15 years to simultaneously lock down her first #1 on both charts in the same week. Last week “Havana” was certified 5X platinum by the RIAA, continuing its unprecedented stature as one of the pinnacle breakthrough hits of recent memory. “Havana” had the longest run at #1 on Billboard’s Top 40 Radio chart in 5 years in addition to holding #1 for 5 weeks in the UK (The British Sunday Times hailed Camila as ‘the biggest pop star in the world’), the longest running female #1 single on the British charts since Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ in 2011. Camila has truly become a global phenomenon, with her self-titled debut notching the #1 spot on iTunes in 100 countries, breaking the record for most iTunes #1 peaks for a debut album, male or female. Camila has also turned the streaming world upside down, setting record Spotify numbers with multiple hits, surpassing a billion streams with CAMILA and totaling more than 2 billion Spotify streams overall to become the 37th most streamed artist of all-time.
Breakthrough country star Kane Brown broke onto the scene and topped the Billboard Top Country Albums for 11-weeks with his platinum-selling self-titled debut effort, earning him the best new artist country debut of the past three years and setting a record as the only artist in Billboard history to simultaneously top all five Country charts. A three-time Billboard Award nominee and double Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) nominee this year, Brown’s current single, the Platinum-selling “Heaven,” is quickly rising (Top 5) at Country radio. “Heaven” has held the #1 slot for 7 weeks on Nielsen’s On Demand Audio Core Country Streaming chart and is Brown’s third track to achieve Platinum or Multi-Platinum certification. “Heaven” follows Brown’s ACM nominated, breakthrough #1 multi-platinum single “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina, which was 2018’s #1 most-streamed country song. The 24-year-old singer/songwriter has garnered over 1 billion on-demand audio and video streams including 81 million views for “Heaven,” available HERE. Brown continues to break records– from his Chapter 1 EP (2016) which was the highest-debuting country EP of the Nielsen SoundScan era to his #1 debut album Kane Brown, which became the sole country album released since December 2016 to receive RIAA Platinum certification status and the only country album to achieve 11 weeks at #1 in the same time period.
Camila’s sold out “Never Be The Same Tour” continues with shows in Toronto and Montreal this weekend, then heads on to Boston on April 29th, Philadelphia on May 1st, and New York City on May 4th, with shows scheduled in the UK and Amsterdam for early June.
