Although they've been friends and supporters of each other for more than five years now, pop music's power couple, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes have only officially been dating since around June 2019. That was when their worldwide chart-topping collaboration, 'Senorita' released, effectively bonding the couple together like superglue. While their catchy duet remains one of the biggest hits of 2019 – according to a recent interview with Cabello,  it apparently may take a while before Cabello and Mendes decide to collaborate on a song together again. But don't lose hope, fans, they're still busy making plans for the future.


In Cabello's recent interview with Jimmy Hill at The Global Awards 2020, the Cuban singer chatted with the British interviewer about a variety of topics, such as Mendes's new beard, celebrating her birthday in Blackpool, her performance outfits and the extremely busy year she's had after breaking through into the mainstream music scene in a huge way - she's amassed billions of views on YouTube in 2019 alone!

During the course of the interview, Cabello admitted that her recently-forged romance with the Canadian artiste has left her feeling rather “exhausted.” But not fed up, thankfully. She just meant that living out a relationship in the public eye can take its toll on you really quickly. 

When asked by  Hill if their fans could expect more tantalizing collaborations from the lovely couple anytime soon, Cabello replied: “I want more, we want more... But honestly, we’re being in our twenties.” Cabello is still just 23, while her partner Shawn is two years her junior - the 'Treat You Better' singer only turned 21 in August last year.

Hill then queried if their busy recording and touring schedules were making it hard for the talented duo to spend time together in the studio. To which Cabello replied, “No, not even like that. Just like being in love is exhausting... it takes it out of you!" The 'Havana' singer went on to explain, “We can’t even go to the studio, we can’t, yeah. We’re trying to calm down!"

Hill then cheekily asked Cabello whether she and Mendes were "too busy in other ways”, to which an amused Cabello quipped back, “No, I meant emotionally!”

Well, all jokes aside, enjoy your lives and take all the downtime you need, Camila and Shawn - your loyal fanbase will be patiently waiting for your next blockbuster hit to emerge till then.
