American singer-songwriter Camila Cabello announced Monday on Instagram on Monday her fourth solo album, "C, XOXO".

The post included the cover art which features a close-up shot of the “Havana” singer with her recently dyed blonde hair, licking a blue lollipop and looking into the camera. In the caption, she reveals that the project is slated for release on June 28.

The pop star’s new project will be the follow-up to her April 2022 LP "Familia", which featured singles “Don’t Go Yet” and “Bam Bam” with Ed Sheeran. Prior to that, she dropped her eponymous debut solo album in 2018, followed the next year by “Romance.”

The former Fifth Harmony member also collaborated on the Trolls Band Together soundtrack in support of her role as Viva in the animated movie. On “It Takes Two,” Cabello sings along with Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake.

Earlier this year, Cabello introduced her new album era with the single “I Luv It” featuring Playboi Carti in late March. The track, produced by El Guincho and Jasper Harris, featured a sample from Gucci Mane’s 2009 single “Lemonade” and peaked at No. 81 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

The “Havana” singer performed the single at Coachella with a surprise appearance during Lana Del Rey’s headlining set on the event’s second weekend. 

“Certain things in our human realm do make me feel like I’m in outer space, and the very rare few times where I’ve had incredible chemistry with someone is one of them,” she said in a statement about the track’s inspiration. “Part of that cocktail is also the emotional drama between you and that person, and the chaos and butterflies and nerves and passion. It’s unsustainable and not peaceful and exhausting, but also, I LUV IT.” 

Outside of music, Cabello appears in the indie drama “Rob Peace”, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. 

In the movie, she plays the girlfriend of the titular character (actor Jay Will) who is forced to sell drugs to help pay for his incarcerated father’s legal issues.

“I felt a story like this needed to be told,” Cabello said in January. “People have told stories like this in an overly simplistic way… people coming from difficult circumstances; binary ways of looking at success and failure. In reality, it’s more complex than that.”
