“Crying in the Club” debuted Friday with a music video featuring Cabello dancing through an empty room and later a night club while singing.
This is the first single from Cabello’s upcoming album, “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving.” The singer told Complex that “the video summarizes the message of my journey over the past couple years, from darkness to light, from lost to found.”
“First song from the hurting the healing the loving, hope u guys love it, i can’t wait for u to see the video 🌹#BuyCryingInTheClubOniTunes,” the 20-year-old singer tweeted. The song has been met with praise from fellow singers Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes and Charli XCX as well.

On her departure from Fifth Harmony, Cabello said she was unable to make the music she wanted as part of the girl group.
“We represented all different kinds of women coming together. We didn’t write our records. We were interpreting somebody else’s story,” she said. “Fifth Harmony is an entity or identity outside all of us, and I don’t think anybody felt individually represented by the sound — we didn’t make it.”
