In the Dave Meyers-directed visuals, the Cuban songstress plays a struggling actress who is frustrated that she’s unable to convince producers to take her seriously.
Camila Cabello finds her hero in DaBaby. On Wednesday, February 12, the “Havana” hitmaker released a brand new music video for “My Oh My”, the final single from her second studio album “Romance”, unveiling the “BOP” rapper’s part in making her a cinematic star.
The black-and-white promo, which oozes 1920s Hollywood vibes, starts with the 22-year-old singer being presented as a struggling silent movie star. Aspiring to be more than just a doll face, she is left frustrated by her inability to convince film producers to take her seriously and to let her be a heroine in a movie.
It is not until the former member of Fifth Harmony goes to a bar that she meets up-and-coming movie mogul DaBaby. Breaking out of her good girl mold, she impresses him with her sword-wielding skills. After he buys her out of her contract, colors comes to her world and she lands a starring role in his production of “La Bonita Blade” where she is introduced as “Killer Cam.”
The music video comes from the hands of director Dave Meyers. In less than 10 hours since its debut on YouTube, it has gotten more than 2 million views. The song itself has stayed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for nine weeks. It peaked at No. 31 since its release in early January, joining her hit single “Senorita”, which also came from the same album, in the chart.
Prior to the release, Camila made use of social media to tease a number of her looks featured in the video. Along with the photos, the girlfriend of Shawn Mendes asked her followers, “what do you think will be the storyline of the music video for my oh my ? we’ll see who’s proven right next week hehehehehe.”
On the release date of the video, Camilla once again turned to Instagram to share a mock poster of it. She wrote on its caption, “WATCH AN UP AND COMING FILM MOGUL AND A STRUGGLING ACTRESS FIND EACH OTHER IN THIS THROWBACK ADVENTURE!!!!!!!!! finally!”
