Camila Cabello just dropped "Señorita," her steamy new single with Shawn Mendes, but this weekend she's hinting that there's much more personal material to come on her next album, the follow-up to 2018's Camila.

"I'm so fucking emotional right now," she wrote in a candid note posted to Twitter Saturday (June 22). "Listening back to the songs I've written for this album so far and I just burst into sobs."

Cabello continued: "It feels really surreal and powerful that I can listen back to my life over the past year - I always get so insecure during the process and feel so much self doubt, but listening back I just feel like... at the very least, I hear my fucking soul in these songs. I can see the memories in them. It's extremely painful, beautiful, cathartic, and just a shit show of emotions, but it's the reason I love this. Because all of the messes I've made in my mind are tangible. I can reach out and I'm there."

"I'm really, really thankful I get to do this. It's so hard, and it can be so scary and bring up all your insecurities and fears, but out of all of that is... my life. The human experience. Messy and beautiful. Anyways, just thinking out loud," she said.

Earlier this week, Cabello delved further into what fans can expect from her sophomore studio album: "For the first time on this album it's not my imagination, it's me writing about things that are happening in real time and I think that there's a level of detail and emotion that you get from that that's kind of irreplaceable ... It's captured my essence of who I am right now. There are a lot of stories to tell this time around."
