Fans of singers Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have been not-so-secretly hoping the pair would date since they both came into the spotlight. The good friends fed the speculation with their 2015 collaboration "I Know What You Did Last Summer," leaving us wondering if anything romantic was going on behind the scenes.
Señorita Music Video
To fans' excitement, Shawn and Camila announced a second collab earlier this week, a track called "Señorita." But it wasn't exactly the song people were freaking out over--it was the music video sneak peek that accompanied the announcement. The short clip showed the pair nearly kissing in a steamy, extremely close scene.
"Señorita" is now out, and needless to say fans are all about the sexy track. And as expected, the music video includes the pair fully coupled up. So what's the deal? Of course, we all want to know if Shawn and Camila are dating.
Back in 2016, Shawn set the record straight to People, addressing the rumors that he and Camila were "a thing" with:
"A thing? No, we weren’t, actually. We’re just really close friends. She is one of those people who is just very easy to connect with and still, to this day, is one of my greatest friends. You find that instant connection with people, and she’s one of them."
The "Nervous" singer also debunked the idea while speaking with Capital FM, explaining that he realized people would start speculating, but they were never dating.
For Camila's part, she's been dating YouTuber Matthew Hussey since early 2018. While the couple tends to keep a low profile, they were seen together just last month, holding hands on a walk in Los Angeles.
Of course, this hasn't stopped fans from convincing themselves that Shawn and Camila are dating--or at least that they should. Since the "Señorita" music video debuted last night, social media has flooded with comments about the pair.
Whether or not they'll ever date, we're just happy Shawn and Camila have blessed us with another hit.
