Camila Cabello dropped her new single and music video â€œDonâ€™t Go Yetâ€ on Friday (July 23) with an announcement of a new album.
The video begins with Cabello driving a vintage convertible. The footage changes into a stop-motion scene of the car continuing along a dirt road accompanied by green hills and palm trees to a grand coral pink house. Upon ringing the doorbell, Camila is greeted by a party of family friends and relatives.
The song begins after the singer greets more guests and the video pans over a wall plate. Although â€œDonâ€™t Go Yetâ€ is a love song pleading for someone to say, the song and video celebrate Cabelloâ€™s Cuban-Mexican heritage with a mix of Spanish lyrics and flamenco guitar strings, maracas, drums, trumpets, and handclapping overlapping as beats. Additional voices in the chorus harmonize with Cabelloâ€™s lead vocals, and her relatives and family friends even dance along and bring fiesta vibes with the â€œSeÃ±oritaâ€ singer in the video.
Some of her own family members are even featured in the music video, including her dad, sister, and cousin. Cabello also mentioned in a tweet that you hear her grandpaâ€™s voice playing on the radio station in the beginning.
â€œDonâ€™t Go Yetâ€ is the first single from Cabelloâ€™s upcoming new album Familia. â€œThis album was inspired by two things: family and food,â€ she tweeted. â€œYour family by blood, but also your chosen family. Who you want to sit at the dinner table, get wine-drunk, and dance in the living room with.â€
The singer also showed her gratitude towards her family in a follow-up tweet and wished her fans to celebrate with theirs.
â€œTo me, those are the moments that make me glad to be alive, those moments of collective joy and true vulnerability and connection with other people,â€ she continued. â€œI hope you enjoy it, and I hope it inspires many wine drunk kitchen dance parties for you and your familia.â€
Her most recent album, Romance, debuted in 2019 and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, with her single â€œSeÃ±orita,â€ featuring her boyfriend Shawn Mendes, peaking No. 1 on the U.S. Hot 100. The release date for Familia is yet to be announced.
