Music will never cease to amaze me, would you have ever guessed that the 2 young artists who star in the popular and sensual song Señorita’, Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello, had spent their entire careers sending each other messages through their songs.

Camila Cabello

CAMILA CABELLO

Camila Cabello, born in 1997 in Cuba, migrated to the United States at the age of 7. As a present for her 15th birthday, she asked her mother to go to ‘The X Factor’ TV show auditions. The contest matched her with 5 other girls forming Fifth Harmony band in 2013, with which she published 3 albums. In 2016 she would start her astronomical solo career, including 2 records until 2021.

Shawn Mendes

SHAWN MENDES

This young Canadian born in 1998 began his career, like almost all current artists, on Social Media. His fame led him to sign a first record deal at age 15. Since then and until 2021 he has released 4 albums (Handwritten, Illuminate, Shawn Mendes and Wonder), achieving worldwide success, and becoming a big pop star.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s story through their music

If I told you the whole story of Camila, it would take a long time. I would say that you have to fight for someone you really love. And if you really, truly love them, then you’ll get them. It just takes time.

🙋‍♂️ Shawn Mendes (during a pre-concert Q&A)

When you first start dating a person and you know nothing about them, there’s less at risk there. I think when you fall in love with somebody you’ve known for a long time, there’s more at stake. But it also feels more special because it feels like the love story you see in the movies of people who have known each other for a long time but been too stupid to realize it or say it and then it happens—and that’s beautiful too.

Shawn Mendes’ platonic love time | Songs with hidden messages

2018. Camila starts dating Matthew Hussey (Youtuber, self-help book author and dating expert 😍). At the same time, 2 songs from Shawn Mendes’ 2nd album ‘Illuminate‘ are playing on every radio station: Treat you better” and “There is nothing holding me back, which lyrics include messages to Camila:

Shawn Mendes Treat You Better

I know I can treat you better than he can
And any girl like you deserves a gentleman
Tell me why are we wasting time
On all your wasted crying
When you should be with me instead

Shawn Mendes There Is Nothing Holding Me Back

I wanna follow where she goes
I think about her and she knows it …
… She pulls me in enough to keep me guessing (mmm)
And maybe I should stop and start confessing

  • But that’s not all, Shawn would release his 3rd album “Shawn Mendes” in which he finally declares himself to Camila through the song ‘Why. Read these lyrics and you’ll see:

I know a girl, she’s like a curse
We want each other, no one will break first …
… When I hear you sing, it gets hard to breathe

Can’t help but think every song’s about me
And every line, every word that I write
You are the muse in the back of my mind,
Don’t want to ask about it ’cause you might brush it off
I’m afraid you think that it means nothing at all
I don’t know why I won’t admit that you’re all I want

Shawn Mendes Why

[Camila] is my favorite person in the whole world. I don’t think you’ll ever meet somebody who can feel emotion like her, in all aspects. She can feel hurt like no other, but she can feel love like no other 🖤

Shawn Mendes (Beats 1, 2018)

Camila turns Shawn down through her songs

As we were saying, Camila was still with a partner and the fact that Shawn confessed his love only clouded their friendship. At that time, she would write 2 songs that were released later in 2019, as part of her 2nd album ‘Romance‘: “Should’ve said it” and “Feel it twice”. Both are directed to Shawn:

Camila Cabello Should’ve Said It

So you want me now? That’s funny
‘Cause you didn’t give a… back then
Comin’ back around, so sorry
‘Cause there’s no room in my bed and I’m all good now …
… If you wanted me so desperately
You should’ve said it

Camila Cabello Feel It Twice 

Hurts me to hurt you, baby …
… Keeping our distance lately
Kills me to kill you when I tell you
That I felt it once, I can’t feel it twice …
… Can’t imagine the pain that you feel when I kiss his face
That’s when you said “How can I be your friend when I know the way you taste?”

Camila & Shawn ‘Señorita | The reunion 

Time goes by and we are already at the beginning of 2019. Camila releases 2 new singles:

  • Liar: Song about not admitting you like somebody 😏
  • Shameless: Track about accepting your feelings for another person 💋

2019. Shawn Mendes receives an initial version of ‘Señorita’ from his producer, suggesting him to sing it as a duet, to which Mendes replies, “it has to be Camila”.

  • Shawn and Camila tweaked music and lyrics several times, even after the first recording, when Camila decides to include this verse:

You say we’re just friends, but friends don’t know the way you taste 🔥

Señorita was released in June 2019 ascending to the Top 1 in America and another 35 countries. It became the biggest hit that summer and Shawn Mendes’ most successful song.

  • What can I say! The song is extremely hot, sensual and delicate at the same time, and it shows how well Shawn and Camila’s voices blend. It really makes you sweat! 💣
  • Their performance at the MTV Video Music Awards is still remembered for the chemistry between them.

Señorita lyrics

LYRICS SHAWN MENDES & CAMILA CABELLO | SEÑORITA | ENGLISH

I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn’t need ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la, it’s true-la-la-la
Ooh I should be running, ooh you keep me coming for ya

Land in Miami, the air was hot from summer rain
And sweat dripping off me
Before I even knew her name-la-la-la
It felt like ooh-la-la-la yeah, no

Sapphire and moonlight
We danced for hours in the sand, Tequila Sunrise
Her body fit right in my hands-la-la-la
It felt like ooh-la-la-la, yeah

I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn’t need ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la, it’s true-la-la-la
Ooh I should be running,

Ooh you know I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish it wasn’t so damn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la, it’s true-la-la-la
Ooh I should be running, ooh you keep me coming for ya

Locked in the hotel
There’s just some things that never change
You say we’re just friends
But friends don’t know the way you taste-la-la-la
‘Cause you know it’s been a long time comin’
Don’t ya let me fall, oh

Ooh, when your lips undress me
Hooked on your tongue
Ooh, love your kiss is deadly, don’t stop

I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn’t need ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la, it’s true-la-la-la
Ooh I should be running,

Ooh you know I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish it wasn’t so damn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la, it’s true-la-la-la
Ooh I should be running, ooh you keep me coming for ya

All along I’ve been coming for ya
And I hope it meant something to ya
Call my name, I’ll be comin’ for ya
(Comin’ for ya), comin’ for ya (Comin’ for you)

For ya, for ya, (oh, she loves it when i come), for ya
Ooh I should be running, ooh you keep me coming for ya

Lyrics Señorita in Spanish

LYRICS SHAWN MENDES & CAMILA CABELLO | SEÑORITA | SPANISH

Me encanta cuando me llamas Señorita
Desearía poder fingir que no te necesitaba
Pero cada caricia es ooh-la-la-la-la, es verdad-la-la-la
Ooh, debería salir corriendo, ooh, me tienes viniendo a por ti

Aterricé en Miami, el aire era cálido por la lluvia de verano
Y me gotea el sudor
Antes siquiera de que supiera su nombre-la-la-la
Me sentí como ooh-la-la-la, sí, no

Zafiro y luz de luna,
bailamos durante horas en la arena, Tequila Sunrise
Su cuerpo encajaba justo en mis manos-la-la-la
Me sentí como ooh-la-la-la, sí

Me encanta cuando me llamas Señorita
Desearía poder fingir que no te necesitaba
Pero cada caricia es ooh-la-la-la-la, es verdad-la-la-la
Ooh, debería salir corriendo,

ooh sabes que me encanta cuando me llamas Señorita
Desearía que no fuera tan jodidamente difícil dejarte
Pero cada caricia es ooh-la-la-la-la, es verdad-la-la-la
Ooh, debería salir corriendo, ooh, me tienes viniendo a por ti

Encerrado en el hotel
hay algunas cosas que simplemente nunca cambian
Dices que somos solo amigos
Pero los amigos no conocen tu sabor-la-la-la
Porque sabes que esto viene de muy atrás,
no me dejes caer, ooh

Ooh, cuando tus labios me desnudan
Enganchado a tu lengua
Oh, amor, tu beso es mortal, no pares

Me encanta cuando me llamas Señorita
Desearía poder fingir que no te necesitaba
Pero cada caricia es ooh-la-la-la-la, es verdad-la-la-la
Ooh, debería salir corriendo,

ooh sabes que me encanta cuando me llamas Señorita
Desearía que no fuera tan jodidamente difícil dejarte
Pero cada caricia es ooh-la-la-la-la, es verdad-la-la-la
Ooh, debería salir corriendo, ooh, me tienes viniendo a por ti

Todo el tiempo he estado viniendo a por ti
Y espero que eso signifique algo para ti
Di mi nombre, vendré a por ti
(vendré a por ti), vendré a por ti (vendré a por ti)

Por ti, por ti, (oh, a ella le encanta cuando voy), por ti
Ooh, debería estar corriendo, ooh, me tienes viniendo a por ti

Shawn and Camila’s relationship begins! 💑

Yeah, finally! In July 2019 they started dating and as they always did, they translated their love into music. Camila released her ‘Romance‘ album, which includes these 2 songs dedicated to Shawn:

Camila Cabello Bad Kind of Butterflies

I know I said we were friends
And when I said that I meant it (Swear I meant it)
Somewhere between now and then
It became more than just a friendship

Camila Cabello Used to This

No, I never liked San Francisco …
… ‘Til you kissed me there
Seventeen when we started to fall

But we lost it all
And I just can’t believe it all definitely

At the end of ‘Señorita’ video shooting Camila published this post praising Shawn:

They make their relationship public in October 2019 with this video:

2020. In addition to consolidating their relationship and spending the pandemic together at their house, they released their third joint song, The Christmas Song‘ 🎄

  • Shawn Mendes would also release his 4th album ‘Wonder‘, packed with songs dedicated to Camila.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabella The Christmas Song

Everything is about you [Camila]. They’ve always been about you. They’re all about you. Like, every song I’ve ever wrote. 🎵

Shawn Mendes reveals what Camila Cabello means to him

You know how we used to record our favorite songs or the most romantic tunes for our partner? Deep down, the love story between Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, although it may seem like a movie, is just the same, only that in their case, instead of recording other people’s songs for the person they liked, they wrote their own songs 😂

We wish them lots of happiness, and above all, lots of music! Same for you Trembols!

You will find tons of exciting music stories 📣 and tremendously moving tunes 😢 on Trembol.

Did you know...?

Camila Cabello was on tour with Taylor Swift when Mendes first texted her about hooking up for ‘Señorita’. She wasn’t interested at first.

Later, she found she couldn’t get the chorus out of her head. She eventually relented and reached out to him, but by this time, Mendes wasn’t sure he wanted to record the track anymore.

It went back and forth for, like, eight months, then they finally went into the studio. Right decision, don’t you think? 💑

‘Señorita’ became Mendes’ first number one in the U.S. and the second number one for Cabello after ‘Havana‘ in 2018.

“Señorita” figures make you dizzy:

  • 1.200 million views on YouTube
  • 1.500 million streams on Spotify
  • 108 days at iTunes Top 1

What is Shawmila?

Shawmila is the combination of both artists’ names: Shawn + Camila

It’s quite a common practice. Fans and media love to mix famous couples names and surnames.

It even has a name, it’s called ‘to ship‘, which means to want 2 people to be together.

How was 'Señorita' composed?

The song was originally conceived during a studio session between Charli XCX, Ali Tamposi, Jack Patterson of Clean Bandit band, and Andrew Watt, the last of whom produced ‘Señorita’. Out of the session they got ideas for melodies and lyrics, including the opening line, “I love it when you call me Señorita”.

Watt sent the song to Shawn Mendes, suggesting that the song be recorded as a duet, to which Mendes agreed and said that Camila Cabello would be the only person with whom he could do the song. Watt then sent the song to producers Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat who decided to keep the song simple and make room for the vocals.

Mendes and Cabello both made changes to the melody and lyrics to their liking, most of the time working through video conferencing as they were either on tour or far from each other.

The producer Benny Blanco lauded their chemistry in the studio and praised their talent and the energy generated in the room. That’s why it is such a hit.
