Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello just released what is possibly the sexiest song of summer 2019. And their music video is just as steamy! The two singers collaborated once more with “Señorita,” a Latin-infused pop song. This marks the second time the two have worked together. Their first was back in 2015 with “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which went on to peak at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
The video features a classic good-girl-falls-for-bad-boy story arch starring the two artists. Cabello plays a waitress working at a diner and Mendes is a brooding motorcycling drifter. As the song comes in, Mendes starts seducing Cabello to be his girl, even attempting to dance a little bit of salsa with her at a local club. But as Cabello tries to thwart his advances, she’s clearly smitten by the guitar-playing Casanova. Hence the lyrics, “I love it when you call me Señorita,” in the chorus.

Subsequently, a passionate romance ensues between them. With too-close-for-comfort dancing and a couple of extremely intimate scenes, the video chronicles their hot relationship. But by the end of the video, they’ve gone their separate ways. The scenes show Mendes looking off into the distance while Cabello is chatting with her co-worker. Both seemed clearly distracted by their break up. Though it’s not the revolutionary storyline some might have wanted, the video does capture the sensual essence of the track.
Prior to this slightly sudden music video drop, both artists had been teasing of the collaboration. Just this past Wednesday, they both shared tiny clips, albeit grainy ones, of the music video on their social media pages. And Cabello even hinted way back in December of 2018 that she had an upcoming project with Mendes. However, as of now, it seems like the single is a stand-alone release. Both artists released their latest albums last year. Mendes dropped his eponymous third album on May 25, 2018, and Cabello unveiled her self-entitled debut album “Camila” on January 12, 2018.
For now, Mendes is currently going on a world tour, titled “Shawn Mendes: The Tour,” which began last March 7, 2019, and will run up to December 21, 2019.
