Camila Cabello took to Twitter on Tuesday (July 2) to put in her two cents about legal issues in the music industry. 

"I don’t know a lot about what’s going on but I will say I really believe artists should own their own life’s work," the "Señorita" singer said.

While Cabello didn't name names, she is one of many artists to weigh in on the discussion about ownership, surrounding the recent battle between Taylor Swift, Scott Borchetta, and Scooter Braun. (Cabello supported Swift on her Reputation Tour last year.)

It was announced earlier this week that Braun acquired Borchetta's Big Machine Label along with Swift's six-album catalog in a $300 million deal. Swift responded to the announcement saying, "this is my worst case scenario." She also accused Braun and his clients of bullying her for years.

Many have since spoken out on the topic, with Justin Bieber, Halsey, Demi Lovato, Todrick Hall, Joseph Kahn, and Yael Cohen (Braun's wife) all taking sides.
