Camila Cabello spoke about Shawn Mendes in a Variety interview.

Camila Cabello has finally spoken up about her rumoured relationship with Shawn Mendes.

Ever since Camila and Shawn released their hit single 'Señorita' this June, fans have speculated that the two stars are dating each other. First there were the racy lyrics and video ('You say we're just friends // But friends don't know the way you taste'), then photos of Camila and Shawn cuddling and holding hands leaked online and, most recently, fans spotted them kissing. However, Camila and Shawn never confirmed whether or not they were actually dating.

Speaking about Shawn, Camila stated: "I’ve known Shawn for such a long time, and it’s so much fun getting to work and do things with somebody who means a lot to you.” She also revealed that the music she's been writing for her new album is all inspired by the fact that she's fallen in love for the first time. Her first album was mainly about “crushes from afar”, whereas her upcoming project is about the real thing.

Camila didn't mention Shawn by name but she said: "Falling in love is like an infinite amount of levels and layers and angles. I fell in love and just opened up. Everything was written in present moment.”

She also added that this album will focus very much on what is happening in her life "now". Given the context, many fans have assumed she's talking about Shawn and we ship it with all of our hearts.


Camila is currently writing her sophomore album with hit writers including Frank Dukes ('Havana'), Ali Tamposi ('Let Me Love You') and Billie Eilish's brother Finneas O'Connell ('bad guy'). The album is expected to drop later this year. We can't wait to hear it.
