The love story of Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes is almost as amazing as the songs they performed together. The couple met in 2014 when Cabello was still a part of Fifth Harmony and his girl group was opening up to Austin Mahone on tour.
“I remember I wanted to go out with you, but you were always on the tour bus, you were just learning the guitar,” Cabello told Mendes during their joint interview with V magazine, and he replied, “Yeah , it was me. You were the only person talking to me. For example, you were the only one among all those who took part in this tour to say words to me. ” Aww. How cute!
After their first meeting, it took a while for their relationship to blossom. Dating rumors of the two didn’t start to surface until November 2015, when they released their first song together called “I Know What You Did Last Summer”.
“We were just backstage,” Mendes said Rolling stone in November 2015, when asked how they found the look on Taylor Swift 1989 to visit. “I pulled out my guitar and we were just messing around, not really thinking about writing a song.”
Their duo turned out to be a success, and when they released their sexy hit single “Señorita” in 2019, fans started to wonder again if something was up between the couple. The singers remained silent on their relationship even when TMZ shared a video of the two musicians kissing in July 2019, but after sparks flew while they performed “Señorita” at the 2019 VMAs, the two could no longer deny their romance.
Cabello explained how she imagined “Señorita” during an interview in August 2019 with Variety. “Shawn sent me the idea for the song and he said, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing. Would you like to do it?’” She explained. “And I was like, yeah. Then like a week later, I just started to think too much, so it was like, he wanted to do it and then I didn’t want to do it. wanted to do it and then he I didn’t want to do it … and finally we were like no pressure. Let’s just go into the studio. Let’s try to finalize it and see what we think about it. And then two weeks later we have did the music video and that was it. ”
“Señorita” quickly rose to No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts, and the song forever immortalized the love Mendes and Cabello have for each other.
