Since her smash album debut Camila released in 2018, the world has been eagerly awaiting new work from singer-songwriter Camila Cabello. Many fans have been especially excited at the thought of another collaboration between Cabello and singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes--and the enthusiasm got even hotter this week when the two were spotted out at lunch together, leading many to speculate that they were working on another song.

On Monday, according to PopCrush, a fan spotted Cabello and Mendes at a restaurant in Los Angeles--leading to a flood of speculation about the possibility of the artists working together. The sighting also reinvigorated the rumor that Cabello and Mendes are dating, although they have previously stated that their relationship is purely platonic.

Previously, Cabello and Mendes collaborated in 2015 on “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which came just after the release of Mendes’ first album, Handwritten; at the time, Cabello was a member of the group Fifth Harmony, which she left in 2016.

More recently, in Dec. 2018, Cabello posted a photo of herself playing guitar with Mendes, with a caption reading “Canadian fury + Latin sass.” This post, too, sparked a number of rumors about their professional and personal relationship--though so far, there has been no announcement of a formal collaboration.

Regardless, we’re excited to see what (if anything) comes from Cabello and Mendes--it might be a little too late for them to be making a song of the summer like Cabello’s hit “Havana,” but we’re still holding out hope.
