Shawn Mendes' Favorite Song on Camila Cabello's Album Isn't What She Thought It Would Be

Shawn Mendes' Favorite Song on Camila Cabello's Album Isn't What She Thought It Would Be

It’s no question that Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are everyone’s favorite musical friends — we mean, how could you not like them?

Ever since their big collab with “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, we’ve been waiting for the two to collab again — and it looks like it happened — well, sort of.

Camila revealed in a new interview that she actually helped Shawn out with one of his songs on his upcoming album.

“It’s so crazy, we never hang out but we’re always texting and always on the phone. We’re never in the same place at the same time but we’re always texting about random stuff. We talk about Harry Potter,” Camila shared about their friendship.

She adds, “I think he was working on his album and he said he needed help because he was going to sing a line in Spanish and so I voice memoed him the correct pronunciation.”

Shawn‘s singing Spanish on his new album? Even better news!

Camila also opened up about Shawn‘s fave song on her debut album.

“I actually sent him my album before it came out, like two weeks before. He told me his favorite song is ‘Inside Out,’” she said. “I thought he would choose ‘All These Years’ or some of the more singer-songwriter stuff.”

“Now I can picture him doing his weird salsa dance moves,” Camila joked.

Camila Cabello Opens Up About Her Decision to Go Solo

Camila Cabello Opens Up About Her Decision to Go Solo

Camila Cabello‘s debut album, Camila, is officially a week old!

The 20-year-old “Havana” singer recently chatted with NPR about her music and opened up about the moment she made the decision to go solo.

“I had been writing songs since I was 16. And at first, I wanted to write for other people,” Camila shared. “Then I, you know, I had these songs that I was like — they were so personal.”

She continues, “I was just kind of telling my story, and I couldn’t imagine me giving it to somebody and somebody else singing them and performing them and making a video for them because it was too close to me.”

Camila changed her mind after that.

“I was like, ‘I don’t want to write for other people. I want this to just be my song. This is my expression of who I am as an artist,’” she adds. “I went a long time writing songs thinking that nobody will ever hear this for another like 10 years because I’ll still be in the group.”

“I’ve made the decision to just kind of go out on my own and start just expressing myself and my vision.”

Camila Cabello Didn't Sleep a Wink The Night Before Her Debut Album Dropped

Camila Cabello Didn't Sleep a Wink The Night Before Her Debut Album Dropped

The night before Camila Cabello‘s debut album came out was not the best night of her life — she couldn’t sleep!

Speaking with Zane Lowe in a new interview, the songstress opened up about being stressed out before the big drop and how sleep just alluded her. (If you need to, watch the funny video!)

“My heart was beating so fast,” she revealed. “I would just try to go to sleep, and then I would just get my phone and I’d be like, ‘Did it come out yet?’”

Camila actually had a wake up call for 4 AM the next morning too, so all those Friday appearances — she was running on fumes.

She also remembered that while trying to calm her nerves and take a cat nap during the day, being scared awake by one of the hotel housekeepers.

“I was trying to go to sleep and this lady came in, and she scared the bejeezus out of me,” Camila says. “I thought that I was having a nightmare. She was like, ‘Hello?’ I was so scared. I was like, ‘This is it. This is it. This is my last day and I didn’t even get to see my album come out.’”

Camila is out everywhere now.

Camila Cabello Dishes on Breakout Bop 'She Loves Control'

Camila Cabello Dishes on Breakout Bop 'She Loves Control'

Camila Cabello‘s “She Loves Control” is a fan favorite — and it’s easy to hear why.

The 20-year-old songstress has opened up about penning the popular song, which she wrote with Skrillex, Frank Dukes, Louis Bell, Ilsey Juber and Mustafa Ahmad.

“[It] could mean a lot of different things,” she teased during her Live event just ahead of the weekend on YouTube. “For me, it was about creative control and just having control over my life. I definitely do love control over the decisions in my career and creative control. Also just feeling good about deciding what you want and getting what you want.”

Camila adds that the song came about just because she liked the title.

“I love that title and wanted to write a song that had that title and had that concept,” she shares. “So we wrote this song to this track and the track was super cool but it was super weird, it almost sounded like it was out of Aladdin.”

And then, it all changed.

“We were like ‘this isn’t working’ so then Frank and I took the acoustic guitar [and] he changed around the chords and I sung the chorus,” Camila continues. “It sounded like this almost rock song…it sounded like a rock n’ roll song. Skrillex ended up coming to the studio 40 minutes later, so we played him the acoustic guitar thing.”

“He basically spent 15 minutes on his laptop and he completely changed the track…to make this reggaeton kind of beat. So then (we) wrote the rest of it that night, super quickly. That was a really fun night.”

Camila Cabello Reveals The Meaning Behind 'In The Dark'

Camila Cabello Reveals The Meaning Behind 'In The Dark'

Camila Cabello just released her debut album last week and now she’s giving fans a little backstory to all her songs on the record.

The second to last song on the album (before the remixes and edits) is “In The Dark”, which she came up with after a Grammys party last year.

Camila told Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 podcast that it was “kind of making an observation from the outside looking in about somebody that I met and that I was kind of having this flirtationship with, and it was like, you know, a famous guy.”

“And I was just kind of noticing that a lot of the times it’s this facade with people that are celebrities and they kind of can’t turn it off like it’s always a performance,” she continues. “You know what I mean?”

Camila adds that the song tells the story of “this mirage, and I don’t want to fall in love with a name or just because you’re famous or who you are. You know, I want to get to know the real person. Perfection is boring. So basically, that’s what that song is about, me wanting to get to know the real person.”
