The Voice coach and pop star Camila Cabello has signed a new record deal.

The singer has parted ways with Epic Records and signed to Interscope, according to Variety. Camila had released three studio albums in four years with the Sony Music label, most recently dropping “Familia” in April. Her first two releases, 2018’s Camila and 2019’s Romance, were both certified platinum by the RIAA, meaning sales of over 1 million units in the U.S.

At Interscope, which is under the Universal Music Group umbrella, Camila will join a roster that includes Lady Gaga, Blackpink, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Selena Gomez and many more. The Voice is on NBC a Universal company. A label deal with Republic Records, also under Universal Music Group is part of The Voice prize package. 

Camila first signed to Epic records in 2013 as part of its partnership with Simon Cowell’s Syco Music. Camila and her girl group, Fifth Harmony had just finished the X Factor season 2 competition in third place. The group released their debut EP Better Together. In 2017, Camila departed from Fifth Harmony, but remained signed to Epic for her first solo and self-titled debut album.

Cabello’s current single, “Bam Bam,” features Ed Sheeran and has garnered more than  150 million on-demand streams, according to data from Luminate, and its airplay audience is nearing 500 million. Her previous hits include 2017’s “Havana” and “Never Be the Same,” 2019’s “Senorita” (with Shawn Mendes) and 2016’s “Bad Things” (with Machine Gun Kelly).

Camila is a first time The Voice coach

Currently, Camila is a first-time coach on The Voice season 22 alongside fellow panelists John Legend, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. On season 21, she served as a Battle Round adviser for Legend. 

“I was nervous at first,” Camila told People about her sting on The Voice.  “But I’m surprised that now, especially with Blake and John and Gwen, they make me feel so comfortable too,” she added. “I’m also surprised how stressful it is when you have to make a decision in real-time. It’s pretty hard and it’s not perfect judgment. It’s like, ‘Oh, dang! Should I have done that? Should I not have done that?’ ”

She also believes her time competing on a similar talent show, The X Factor, has helped her coaching. “I think it helps me tremendously because I have that perspective that’s really helpful,” she said. “I know how high-stakes it feels, and the abnormal high speed, high pace pressure of it. So I think, psychologically, I have really good advice.”
