The now-group of four wished her well on her solo career, but let's not forget about that SHADY AF VMA performance.

“With the experiences we had being in the studio, I became super curious about songwriting and it was around the time — I think it was the second year that I was with the group — that I wanted to start songwriting for other people," she explained.

“But once I was old enough to experience my first kiss, or the first time that I went on a date, I began writing songs about it, and I didn’t want to give them away to anybody else because they were about me."

"I was finding my voice, and with it, I found the passion that gives you a deeper meaning.”

That being said, she also appreciates the experiences she shared with the group, saying that it "shaped [her] entirely."

She explained:

I would not be the person that I am right now. I would not have been ready for this. I feel like being part of a group teaches you so many things about yourself, ironically. And it also brings out this healthy competition, you know what I mean? You never want to be the one that sucks.

Well, I'd definitely say it all worked out. Keep crushing the game, Camila!
