Mendes and Cabello first met back in 2015 when Mendes served as an opener for Cabello’s group Fifth Harmony, which she left at the end of 2016. The duo released their first song together, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” in November 2015 and it entered the top 20 of the singles chart. Nearly four years later, they reconnected for “Señorita,” which hit No. 1 on the charts. The record gave them an American Music Award for collaboration of the year and a Grammy nomination for best pop duo/group performance. Shortly after “Señorita” was released, Mendes and Cabello confirmed their relationship by sharing a kiss in an Instagram post.
As for their personal careers, Cabello is wrapping up her third album, Familia, which is led by her summer single “Don’t Go Yet.” Mendes, on the other hand, will kick off his Wonder: The World Tour in March.
