Song of the Day #4,781: ‘Don’t Go Yet’ – Camila Cabello

Normani might be my favorite former member of Fifth Harmony to watch, but Camila Cabello is the one I most like to hear.

Her 2018 debut album, Camila, was a real gem, featuring the hit ‘Havana’ and a bunch of mellow pop songs that never got the radio play they deserved. Her follow-up, 2019’s Romance, didn’t live up to its predecessor but nevertheless suggested she wouldn’t be a one-hit wonder.

No release date has been announced for Cabello’s third album, Familia, but first single ‘Don’t Go Yet’ is a promising early glimpse. The song finds Cabello embracing her Cuban-Mexican roots in both sound and style, more upbeat than ‘Havana’ but tapping into a similar Latin pop vein.

[Intro]
Oh, my love, oh, yeah, yeah
I’m in love, yeah

[Verse 1]
I replayed this moment for months
Alone in my head, waitin’ for it to come
I wrote all your lines in the scripts in my mind, and
I hope that you follow it for once

[Pre-Chorus]
I imagine myself in satin, the room was platinum and gold
I’d dance and catch your eye, you’ll be mesmerized, oh
We’d find a corner, then your hands in my hair
Finally we’re here, so, why
Are you sayin’ you got a flight, need an early night?
No, don’t go yet

[Chorus]
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
Oh, yеah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
What you leavin’ for, whеn my night is yours?
Just a little more, don’t go yet

[Verse 2]
Baby, don’t go yet, ’cause I wore this dress for a lil’ drama
And I bet, I bet that you think that you know, but you don’t
Baby, come to mama
I get, I get what I want when I want
And I get it how I wanna, wanna
And I want you baby, gotta get you, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
We’d find a corner, then your hands in my hair
Finally we’re here, so, why
Are you sayin’ you got a flight, need an early night?
No, don’t go yet

[Chorus]
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (No, no)
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours?
Just a little more, don’t go yet

[Post-Chorus]
Dámelo
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Don’t go yet)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, hey (Don’t go yet)
Hey!

[Bridge]
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet)
(No te vayas, quédate) Dale
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) Ahora voy yo
(No te vayas, quédate)
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) Stay a little longer
(No te vayas, quédate) Know you really wanna
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) Stay a little longer
(No te vayas, quédate) Oh

[Chorus]
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (Oh)
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (Oh, don’t go yet)
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (Oh)
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours?
(No te vayas, quédate) Just a little more

[Outro]
(Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet) What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours? Yours, yours
What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours?
Just a little more, don’t go yet

    Happy to see the next generation picking up the torch from Gloria Estefan and keeping the Miami sound alive.
