Camila Cabello has had us all humming the catchy tune of “Havana” for years now, but how much do you really know about the Cuban-America singer, songwriter, and actress?

And while she’s traveled the world in her fame, she still calls Miami home.\nHere are 10 things about Camila Cabello’s Miami roots you may not have known.\n1. She was born in Havana, Cuba in the town of Cojímar in East Havana.\nView this post on Instagram This took my breath away. I was in Little Havana just a week ago because I love walking around there and taking in all the sounds and smells and sights of Cuban culture- in miami we’re 90 miles away, but here - hearing Cuban music, seeing these murals with Cuban artists, and walking through the domino park- I feel so connected to my family and my roots- this is soooo beyond cool and it made my heart skip a beat!!!! 🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺 HAVANA OOO NA NA.

The songstress finally acquired her American citizenship in 2008.\nView this post on Instagram instead of telling me we were moving to the US when I was little, my mom told me the reason we were saying our goodbyes to everyone was because we were going to Disney world - on the bus to Miami, I had a Winnie the Pooh journal and a Disney calendar counting down the days till my dad would join us in Miami and we could all go to Disney world. It’s been a mythical, magical place to me ever since I was little- and every time I come back it reminds me how powerful imagination is and how it can literally create a world for people to get lost in. Disney world is magic and beauty and innocence and wonder. It makes me feel like a kid again and it makes me eat like a sumo wrestler. YAY BONDING W MY LIL SISTER AND YAY DISNEY WORLD!!!
