Former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello has discussed her debut solo album, revealing that the process of creating it has made her "not afraid to feel".

The singer, who recently unveiled her debut single 'Crying in the Club' alongside details of her album The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving, said she feels "healed" after making the record.

"This process has taught me not to be afraid to feel," Camila told the BBC.

"Feeling sad is a part of life. Grief is a part of life. Heartbreak is a part of life, just as much as falling in love is a part of life. And it doesn't necessarily mean that those emotions are bad. They are just as necessary as the happy ones.

"And so don't be afraid of them – welcome them, let them in. Because as soon as you accept it, talk about it, accept that it's happening, the sooner you'll be able to move on from it."

As well as her debut single, Camila premiered album track 'I Have Questions' last month, which she said she penned while "completely broken" on tour with Fifth Harmony.

"[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," she explained.

"[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."

The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving is set for release later this year.
