Camila Cabello, a former member of Fifth Harmony, is rounding out the spring season with a chip on her shoulder, releasing her latest collaboration “Find U Again” with Mark Ronson.

In working with stars like Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, and more, Ronson has more than exemplified his ability to catalyze radio sensations with his touch in the studio, producing an inevitable radio ravager with this latest collaboration. “Find U Again” incorporates ’90s diva feels with some funky leads and light drum hits, while bringing in sounds from the current decade with a synth-geared bass line. The Cuban-American’s vocals are a prime addition to the arrangement, bound to shoot this pop sizzler up the charts.

The track isn’t all Cabello has in store this year, as she was recently seen hooked up to a mic in Diplo‘s Instagram story. Luckily, a fan account captured the evidence.
