In all honesty I tried really hard to not like this song. Mostly, because I’m nearly 21 years old and these two are maybe 18 and I don’t know if I can go to another concert full of screaming hormonal teens and make it out with my ear drums in tact. Which is why I’m a little behind from when it was “new” but now, as usual, I’ve had it on repeat while I’m going to and from campus during a busy week and Shawn Mendes is sort of the 90’s heartthrob of today (am I right ladies!?) and it’s nice to see Camila outside of Fifth Harmony and in a different style/sound.
The duet was released at the end of November,with the video out November 20. The pair wrote the song after meeting at a Taylor Swift concert where Shawn was the opening act. Since then rumors have spread like wildfire that there’s more than a work relationship between the two, which they (rather awkwardly) denied on the Late Late Show with James Corden (watch the interview here.)
They’ve performed the song a few times on several different broadcast shows like Live with Kelly and Michael and after their hilariously defensive interview with Corden. You can check out the video and the song right here and be back next week for all new content!
