Camila Cabello’s performance for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert — timed with Hispanic Heritage Month — premiered Friday (Oct. 15) and included a performance of the new song “La Buena Vida.”
The singer started her set with her salsa-inspired 2018 smash hit “Havana,” with Cabello’s sultry vocals perfectly matching her live band’s performance. The “Señorita” singer went on to introduce her band before warning fans that her voice might sound a bit nasally because she was battling a “tiny” sinus infection.
“I didn’t want to not do ‘Tiny Desk’ because I’m a huge ‘Tiny Desk’ fan and I didn’t know if they were going to call me back again, so, here I am,” Cabello explained. “And hopefully, next time, we’ll do it at the ‘Tiny Desk’ actual, at the NPR office, without the tiny sinus infection, but for now, this is where it’s at.”
The singer jumped into “Real Friends,” “Señorita” and “Don’t Go Yet” before closing with the debut of “La Buena Vida,” which enlisted the help of the Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar. “La Buena Vida” is from her upcoming album titled Familia, due sometime this year. Cabello’s performance of the mariachi-infused song closes out the “Tiny Desk” Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
