Shawn Mendes And Camila Cabello Give Romantic Performance Of “Señorita” At 2019 MTV VMAs

Shawn Mendes is one of the biggest young names in music at this moment in time. The 25-year-old has been incredibly busy in the last ten years of his life, having begun his music journey at just age 13. Since then, he has released four studio albums and performed countless tours for his adoring fans all over the world, while also collaborating with some rather impressive artists. One of his most iconic collaborations was with the American singer-songwriter, Camila Cabello.

Cabello and Mendes came together in 2019 to create “Señorita”, which would become a huge hit for the musical duo. Its success was only amplified by the announcement that Mendes and Cabello were an item for some time in the same year, which came as no surprise to fans as their onstage performances of this particular song were rather romantic. Their biggest and best performance of “Señorita” was at the 2019 MTV VMAs, which was incredibly intimate and powerful; watch in the video below:

In their collaborative performance of “Señorita”, heavy romanticism is again used by both Mendes and Cabello. The low lights, thousands of small lights and intimate setting for both the musicians and the fans made this a tantalizing experience for all involved. As Mendes and Cabello lean on each other during the performance, both of their exceptional skills as entertainers shine through. Both musicians give their all and demonstrate their impressive vocals.

Shawn Mendes’ popularity wasn’t quite as traditional as other singer-songwriters of previous years. He became popular in 2013 when he posted videos of himself covering popular songs on the video-sharing platform Vine before it was officially discontinued. At the time, Mendes was 13 and just learning to play the guitar through YouTube tutorials; before long, he became an internet sensation with his cover of Justin Bieber’s “As Long as You Love Me”. From there, his popularity on the platform soared.

Despite the passionate performance at the 2019 VMAs, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello separated in 2021. While this shocked and, understandably, upset fans, the two made a joint statement mentioning their love for each other as humans despite the relationship failing. They briefly reunited in 2023 for a short romantic spell, but that also ended after a relatively short amount of time. In an interview, Cabello mentioned that she is sure the two will not get back together again.

Overall, Shawn Mendes’ music has been a huge commercial success. After his popularity grew on the Vine platform, he took to releasing full-length records, including the 2016 album Illuminate, which was certified platinum after selling over 121,000 copies. Alongside that, one of the record’s singles, “Treat You Better”, became an instant hit and has since been certified triple platinum. Pair that with sold-out shows in some of the biggest and best venues in the world, and you have a recipe for success in Shawn Mendes.
