‘Bam Bam’: Is Camila Cabello’s new single about Shawn Mendes? Fans say ‘for sure’
Loyal fans of Camila Cabello quickly assumed that her new song was aimed at Shawn Mendes after checking out the lyrics
Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes announced their split in November 2021 with a common statement on Instagram. Camila, who was spotted with Shawn again in January in Miami, dropped a new single called ‘Bam Bam’ on Friday, March 4 and fans are convinced that it takes a dig at her former lover. Cabello has joined hands with R&B and pop icon Ed Sheeran for her latest work. Camila also announced that her new album ‘Familia’ will be up for streaming on April 8.
The Cuban-born American crooner has been teasing the single for the last few days on her social media accounts and fans quickly assumed the song was aimed at Shawn after checking out the lyrics. Camila, on the other hand, later sat for an interview with Zane Lowe and spoke about her current feelings concerning her ex-flame. Camila and Shawn first started dating in July 2019, five years after they met each other while opening for Austin Mahone.
Why did Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello BREAK UP? Fans say 'feeling is worse than death'
Is Camila Cabello’s new single ‘Bam Bam’ about Shawn Mendes?
Camila in her new song croons, “You said you hated the ocean, but you're surfin' now/ I said I'd love you for life, but I just sold our house/ We were kids at the start, I guess we're grown-ups now, mmm/Couldn't ever imagine even havin' doubts/ But not everything works out, no.” If this was not enough, in the video Camila is seen having a bad time before she eventually goes wild partying with her gang.
Camila, however, in the interview with Lowe spoke about her feelings for Shawn. She reportedly said she loves Shawn, and only has love for him. Ed Sheeran too makes an appearance in the teaser and in the song, where he goes, “It's been a hell of a year, thank God we made it out/ Yeah we were riding a wave, and trying not to drown/ And on the surface I held it together/ But underneath, I sorta came around.” For the unversed, this is the third time when Camila and Ed have come together for a song. They showed their magic on songs ‘South of The Border’ and ‘The Boy’.
Calling it quits in November 2021, Camila and Shawn had released a joint statement on social media saying, “Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for another as humans is stronger than ever,” adding, “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward. Camila and Shawn.”
