AceShowbiz - Camila Cabello is making sure her dad knows how much she loves him on Father's Day. On Sunday, June 22, the "Havana" hitmaker celebrated her father, Alejandro, by releasing a brand new music video for her sweet song "First Man", that is filled with her sweet childhood memories of the two of them.
Four-minute long, the visual presents a compilation of the 23-year-old singer's home videos that capture the warm moments they shared beginning with the time she was just a newborn. It sees her watching the footage on a television, and at one point, her teary-eyed father sits next to her as they look at the videos together.
When dropping the promo, the girlfriend of Shawn Mendes announced on Instagram, "Papa, I made this for you." She continued, "thank you for loving me, unconditionally, ferociously, and constantly. doesnt matter if I fail or succeed, doesn't matter if I feel on top of the world or like the dirt on my shoe lol. you love me just because you love me, without me needing to do or be anything other than just me."
Wishing Alejandro a happy Father's Day, the former member of Fifth Harmony went on to note why she is grateful for her father. "thank you endlessly, for everything. Thank you for showing me what love is and for showing me how to be loved," she added. "I will always be your little girl. te amo mucho papa, thank you for being my hero, happy Father's Day."
Cabello has previously spilled that "First Man" was about her father's reaction to her first serious relationship. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple's New Music Daily, she shared, "This song is basically about when I was in my first serious relationship, I had never brought a boy home before. My dad hadn't seen me dating or whatever. He was just like very sensitive about it."
"And I think that's the first time that he really felt that. And so he felt really protective over me and I just think that is the sweetest thing. I think the song is going to be like wine to me," she continued explaining. "Like I think when I'm like 90 years old and if someday I'm just listening back to my songs, I think it's just going to get more and more important to me as time goes on."
Cabello performed the song live for the first time at the 62nd Grammy Awards in late January 2020. Leaving no dry eyes with her emotional performance, the "Senorita" singer reduced her father to tears when she stepped down from the stage to hold his hand near the end of her singing.
