Shawn Mendes is having the best year of his career. The singer just dropped his self-titled album and it’s got everyone talking.
In his new single titled “Why,” fans are convinced that it’s an open love letter to Camila Cabello.
The former Fifth Harmony member and Shawn Mendes have been linked together up until he started being seen with model Hailey Baldwin.
The stans of both of the singers have caught them talking about each other multiple times. Although they remain to call each other “best friends,” there has always seemed to be something more going on.
Some of the lyrics of “Why” read: “I know a girl, she’s like a curse. We want each other, no one will break first. I don’t know why we act like it means nothing at all.”
It appears that Shawn is referencing his cat and mouse game with the “Havana” artist.
In 2015, James Corden accused the crooner of making out with Cabello to which he answers that they haven’t because “every time I try to make a move, she swears me off. It’s never gonna happen.”
If you ask Camila, she has a different answer, stating: “He friend-zones me! He calls me ‘kid’!”
Since Hailey Baldwin and Shawn Mendes have been sending flirty messages to each other (starting October of 2017), it has been assumed that they were dating.
When they made their adorable red carpet debut at one of the biggest events of the year, aka The Met Gala, it seemed to solidify the rumor.
However, the singer just told E! News that he was single.
“I am single. Met Ball was such an incredible experience for me. It was overwhelming in the most incredible way. I was lucky for my first time going there to be able to go with someone like Hailey because she is such a vet and I admire people like her because of how outgoing she is in such an overwhelming experience,” the 21-year-old explained.
Do you think that Camila and Shawn will ever make things official? Do you think he’s a better match with Hailey?
