Camila Cabello Hypnotizes on New Song ‘Crown’ off Netflix’s ‘Bright’ Soundtrack
Bow down: Camila Cabello is ready for her reign.
Today (December 14), the chart-climbing "Havana" singer teams up with EDM production duo Grey on "Crown," a hypnotic new song off the soundtrack for Netflix's forthcoming fantasy action film, Bright.
Over a grand, lush electronic soundscape, Cabello's zephryous vocals curl and billow like incense smoke, rising higher and higher amid twinkling cymbals, thick beats and mesmerizing Arabic oud riffs.
"Baby on fire / I see you when I close my eyes / I think it's time / A kingdom that is mine," she sings on the pre-chorus, before the song tears into a crumbling electronic breakdown.
The resulting atmosphere is both mystical and mysterious, much like the upcoming movie itself, and while a heavier, more contagious hook would have made for a stronger pop anthem, "Crown" offers an exciting new sound from the rising pop princess. Listen:
Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, premieres December 22 on Netflix.
