Camila Cabello admits it's "a huge compliment" to have her song 'I Luv It' compared to Charli XCX's 'I Love it'.

Fans have only heard a snippet of the 'Havana' hitmaker's upcoming single, but some have said it sounds like Charli's 2012 hit with Icona Pop.

Former Fifth Harmony star Camila, 27, insists she and Charli, 31, are good friends so she insists there would never be any beef between them.

Speaking to PAPER magazine, she laughed: "I love Charli and I love Charli's music, so I think [comparing us is] a huge compliment.

“Charli loves me, so everybody can **** off."

Elsewhere, Camila teased the "hyper-femme" persona that she tapped into for her upcoming fourth studio album, which is out this summer.

She said: "Six months [into recording], we had a couple songs and [I realised], Oh, this is a character.

“It became a persona that I was tapping into, which was me, but definitely a hyper-femme version of me. [I started to ask:] What are the colour palettes of the world this character inhabits? What’s her hair? What’s photography like there?”

The follow-up to 2022's 'Familia' is rap influenced.

Jasper Harris - who is best known for his work with Tate McCrae, Jack Harlow and Baby Keem - worked on the beats with Camila and told the publication: “We were deeply influenced by rap.

“We wanted to see how we could take these cadences that have a certain swagger and contrast it with beautiful music and pretty chords and lush guitar. We were mixing and matching to find something new and inspiring. If it's a sweet melody, let's make the music scary. If she has a rap flow, let's make the music acoustic.”
