Camila Cabello has actually admitted she and her beau Shawn Mendes had “drifted” apart before they collaborated for their chart-topping hit Senorita.
The set initially teamed up on the track I Know What You Did Last Summertime in 2015, and sent fans wild with speculation that the two were a product when they launched their hot hit in June. And speaking with E! News at the launch of Elle U.S.’s Females In Music issue– which the star covers– on Thursday, she admitted the track assisted the set “reconnect”.
” We went back and forth for eight months deciding whether we were going to do the song together,” she remembered. “I like him with all my heart and always have. We have actually understood each other for a really long period of time … We have actually always been there for each other.
” I believe we drifted since we weren’t hanging out as much. It was enjoyable to be able to reconnect and hang out again.”
The Havana vocalist, 22, also confessed Shawn is her “ultimate creative motivation”, and has transported her relationship with the 21-year-old into her brand-new music.
“Falling in love, for me, just highlights all of my vulnerabilities. All these things appear for me and it just makes you open,” she continued. “When I remain in love I listen to songs and I simply sob. I weep simpler. That must imply that I’m more open and more in touch with my feelings.
“All the spectrum of emotions … happiness, worry, all of it,” the star included.
Camila is anticipated to launch her new album Romance later this year.
