Like teenagers paired up in fifth grade, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes acted like a match made in heaven while vehemently extinguishing dating rumors. The devoted shippers of these two can attest to the emotional rollercoaster Cabello and Mendes put them through.
Finally, supporters of these two musical pop stars heaved a sigh of relief when they announced their relationship in 2019.
It’s safe to say that fans’ excitement could be compared with watching a toddler walk for the first time.
And, of course, they received worldwide acceptance from their fans. But, this didn’t spare them from the toxicity of some social media frenzy. Celebrities are often exposed to this negativity in their daily dealings, but Cabello and Mendes have managed to rise above it and go about their lives the way they want.
The pair’s chemistry transcends beyond physicality, as they are also in sync career-wise. Keep reading below to find out the stunt this pair pulled during a Taylor Swift show.
Before they became an item, the duo released a smash hit titled “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” and the chemistry in the song and video was insane. After watching contestants perform their song at battles of “The Voice,” Cabello disclosed a jaw-dropping fact behind the production.
She and Mendes were inspired to make that song at one of Taylor Swift’s concerts. They proceeded to Swift’s dressing room to start writing the track from scratch.
Even John Legend was no stranger to their oozing chemistry. He once noted that they pulled it off effortlessly as it was their first-ever collaboration as friends.
In Cabello’s words, they “walked away with more than a song.” Is it safe to say more magic than rhythm in that dressing room? Guess we’d never know. One sure thing is shippers would have to thank the song more.
Musical Best Friends Turned Lovers
Following years of what seemed like a never-ending “friendship,” Cabello and Mendes announced their romance in the summer of 2019. It was the buzz of the media at that time. Several admirers of the pop stars took to social media to air their thoughts.
It was beautiful to see them finally accept the love they tried so hard to hide.
Of course, they have been through a lot as famous personalities– some spectators believed that they were faking their romance to get more eyes on them and their music careers. Especially after insisting for months that there was nothing more.
Others simply said they started dating under pressure and would split soon.
Despite all these assumptions, the duo has proven that their love is genuine and beautiful. Although they went quiet on their relationship for a while, they resurfaced with a seemingly stronger bond. We only hope it would get even better for the lovebirds.
Who Have They Dated In The Past?
Mendes and Cabello may now be soulmates, but before they found each other, they were in relationships with other people that they thought would last forever.
However, fans are rooting for this duo that they live happily ever after regardless of the difficulties that come with being in a relationship.
Before meeting each other, the singers have been in several previous relationships with some of the biggest names in the industry. Cabello was seemingly involved with singer-songwriter Austin Mahone and the famous face of now broken up boyband “One Direction,” Louis Tomlinson.
Mendes was also previously involved with Chloe Mortez and now wife of Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, aka Hailey Bieber.
‘Senorita’ Intensified Their Relationship Rumors
If anything made fans go wild on social media about the song, it wasn’t the lovely dance movies the couple exhibited in the music video, rather it was a statement from Cabello who sang saying; “… You say we’re just friends/ but friends don’t know the way you taste lalala…”
When the video of their song “Senorita” came out, shippers, admirers, haters, even people who couldn’t care were moved to comment on their “friendship” at the time. Many couldn’t believe that the pair claimed not to be involved.
With their stellar stage performance of the song on MTV, everyone was curious. Fans were all over social media with comments like, “Cabello and Shawn are the ones to have a baby together, but just as friends,” they knew how to get people talking.
Fans also commented on how much they enjoyed each other’s company, as Cabello once noted that Mendes helps her manage her anxiety. Subsequently, Mendes revealed that he gets his inspiration from his partner.
