Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello - Señorita (Island Records/UMG Recordings): This new track pairs two Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum selling pop singer/songwriters and is rapidly shaping up as a major hit, grabbing 67M YouTube views in just four days.
Mendes and Cabello wrote the song alongside Andrew Watt, Benny Blanco, Ali Tamposi, Charli XCX, Jack Patterson, and Cashmere Cat (it seems mandatory to have a fistful of credits on pop tunes these days). Señorita was produced by Andrew Watt & Benny Blanco, with additional production by Cashmere Cat.
A music video for Señorita, directed by Dave Meyers, came out simultaneously, and some steamy footage of Mendes with Cabello will grab eyeballs.
The cut itself is a catchy one, with a sunny Latin-tinged vibe, and the two trade lead vocals and harmonise sweetly. The lyrics feature a few cheesy rhymes ("Senorita" and "leave ya"), but that won't prevent this from racing up the charts.
