Listen up, shucksters: Camila Cabello‘s latest music video has arrived, and with it, we’re introduced to her Hollywood heroine’s origin story. Get ready to meet “Killer Cam.”
For her lustful new single “My Oh My,” Cabello reunited with her “Havana” director Dave Meyers. Like that VMA-winning blockbuster, this one is a pure cinematic feast. The singer is first introduced as a struggling actress fed up with being the “damsel in distress” but unable to convince studio suits to take her seriously. But when she meets an up-and-coming movie mogul, played by DaBaby, all rules fly out the window. “I swear on my life that I’ve been a good girl / Tonight, I don’t wanna be her,” our heroine sings as he literally takes a sword to the patriarchy and musters up the gusto to channel her inner “Killer Cam” and “La Bonita Blade” in a full-color feature of her own.
Throw in some Grease-style dancing, a fabulous all-leopard ‘fit, and witty subtitles, and you’ve got yourself a mini-movie as irresistible as the romance Cabello sings about.
“My Oh My” follows a slew of cinematic videos Cabello’s rolled out as part of her Romance era. She channeled a campy telenovela in “Liar,” wandered a flowery dreamscape in “Living Proof,” danced with some clones in “Shameless,” and, of course, got steamy with Shawn Mendes in “Señorita.”
Next up, Cabello will launch her Romance Tour in May — but not before filming Disney’s live-action Cinderella, which she’s been teasing on social media recently. “My Oh My” proves she’s certainly got the acting bug, so consider us thoroughly hyped.
