Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes gave everyone the thirst at their MTV VMAs 2019 performance. Even though they didn't kiss on stage, they did reportedly sneak a few smooches in while they were sitting together, and were basically as adorable all night as we hoped they would be.

Vogue filmed the behind-the-scenes details of Camila getting ready for the VMAs and fans got some details about the beginning of her collab with Shawn, "Señorita." Surprisingly, she shared that she wasn't immediately on board with the offer. As reported by Seventeen, Camilla said:

"It must have been last summer where he sent me the idea for the song, and he [Shawn] was like, ‘Do you want to do this with me?' I thought it was super cool and it was a few months of back and forth, but I literally lost sleep over it because I was like, ‘My God, I think I do want to do it — maybe I don’t.'”

Camila shared that once they agreed, everything happened very quickly, explaining, "We went [into] the studio and figured it out and then filmed the video a week and a half after.”

The "Havana" singer also discussed the Balmain dress she chose to wear at the VMAs. "This one stuck out to me because it was very romantic, which is where I kinda am in life right now," she coyly explained.

Thank goodness she decided to do "Señorita," because it might've been the start of an incredible relationship for her and Shawn.
