The songstress teased the release Thursday afternoon, while at the same time suggesting a great way to listen to her new music.
"Who’s gonna listen to #ROMANCE with a glass of wine in the tub at midnight tonight?" Cabello captioned some album art showing her sitting on top of a retro TV in a white shirt, a tie, no pants and black knee-high boots.
The singer then shared a very trippy, psychedelic minute-long short film that served as a surrealist invitation to the "world of Romance."
"Do you dare to lose yourself in love? Do you dare to lose yourself in the exquisite agony of it? The desperation, the madness, the urgency, the passion, the ecstasy? An invitation like this is not for the faint of heart," the lengthy caption read in part. "All that’s left to do is surrender. I know what you’re thinking. 'Surrender? That’s it? That’s all I can do now?' Believe me, I know. How deliciously terrifying, how irresistibly maddening.............. Can you feel your heart in your throat? Have the butterflies in your stomach turned into roaring lions? If yes, then you know you’ve arrived. Welcome to the world of Romance."
After having truly amped up her fans with all the build up, the album finally dropped at midnight (East Coast time) and Cabello invited fans to share how they feel about the new album.
"Romance is finally out. this is all yours now. please tell me everything you think, I’m dying to know 😫" she wrote alongside a post of the album cover.
As it so happens, her fans were more than willing to tell her what they felt, and what they felt was all of the emotions in the world, apparently.
"Your album is too powerful and im so weak , I honestly can’t stop crying," one user tweeted.
"CAMILA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WORKING ALL THIS TIME TO GIVE US SUCH A BEAUTIFUL ALBUM, FULL OF FEELINGS AND PERSONAL MUSICS," another fan shared. "I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I'M IN LOVE WITH ROMANCE."

I have no right words to say how much this album moved me. I can finally close my eyes and travel across mountains to the world where I learned about love. What made me most in love was knowing that through #Romance I could see your evolution and feel closer to you ❤️— Eve 𝕽𝖔𝖒𝖆𝖓𝖈𝖊 🥀💋🖤 (@Kcceattention) December 6, 2019
