The long-awaited collab was a hit and also marked the start of Camila and Shawn’s romance. It had been four years since their first collab, but this time sparks flew.
“It was this awkward thing where we both liked each other, but we werent together,” Camila told Rolling Stone . “It was just weird. An energy was there from the beginning, but after that song, we didnt spend as much time together. Our paths just didnt cross in that way romantically until we started hanging out again and writing. For me, it just brought it back.”

December 2015: Camila and Shawn share an adorable Instagram video.
Long before the make-out heard round the ‘gram, Camila and Shawn shared a sweet clip together.
November 2015: Camila and Shawn release their first collab.
The duo recorded “I Know What You Did Last Summer” together earlier in the year. The breakup tune was Camila’s first as a solo artist and a bit serendipitous. Camila and Shawn reconnected backstage at a Taylor Swift concert. We were just backstage hanging out, Shawn told Rolling Stone . I pulled out my guitar and we were just messing around, not really thinking about writing a song.
The song brought them together as friends, but nothing more just yet. I am very lucky that we wrote the song because I also got a really good friendship out of that, Camila told the publication.
April 2015: Camila and Michael Clifford go on a dinner date.
The Fifth Harmony singer and Five Seconds of Summer singer seemed like a match made in studio heaven, or at least their band names meshed well. In April 2015, they went out for dinner together, Hollywood Life reported. It looked like a date, but the singers never publicly announced any relationship.
Early 2015: Camila connects with Austin Mahone.
After meeting on tour, Austin and Camila dated back in 2015. They shared some Insta-worthy movie dates complete with drool-worthy snacks. When Ausmila ended, the Youtube singer turned popstar moved on to Becky G shortly after. “It’s crazy, I never had, like, a real relationship before, so it’s pretty crazy,” Austin told MTV News . Camila was none too thrilled with the snub, tweeting shortly after the interview “damn….good to know.” (Did sharing those Junior Mints mean nothing?)
However, they were on good terms by the time she released her Havana music video in 2017. “Shes really doing her thing right now and Im very, very proud of her,” Austin told Seventeen .
July 2014: Camila meets Shawn on tour.
Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes opened up for Austin Mahone’s tour. Camila was a member of the girl group and took to the same stage as her eventual love week after week .
Camila and Shawn weren’t instantly inseparable, though. I honestly remember so clearly the first day we met, Camila told Rolling Stone . He was just playing with a guitar, and I was like, Hi! Nice to meet you. We didnt really hang around much during Austins tour. It was Shawns first tour ever, so he was constantly working, and if he wasnt working, he was in his bus playing guitar and being a loner.
