In the history of pop music there have been some truly memorable duets thanks to solo artists teaming up.
Brandy and Monica’s The Boy Is Mine, Nelly and Kelly Rowland’s Dilemma, and Gwen Stefani and Eve’s Blow Ya Mind are all examples of artists coming together to create magic and earning Grammy wins in the process.
Now solo artist Shawn Mendes and Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello have hit the studio together, with the result a duet that may earn them a spot among the greatest collaborations of the past 20 years.
The rumoured couple have been teasing their new single I Know What You Did Last Summer (no J-Love relation) for weeks on social media. After a few listens we can safely say the new song was worth the wait.
The new track is about a couple on the verge of a cheating scandal, with Mendes’ taking the view of the party being deceived by his partner. Mendes sings “When she looks me in the eyes / They don’t seem as bright no more / I know that she loved me at one time / And I promised her that night, cross my heart and home to die” on the building pop track that has a deliciously sinister undertone.
The darkly dramatic duet showcases the duo’s mature songwriting skills, with Mendes singing “I know what you did last summer / Just lie to me, there’s no other / I know what you did last summer / Tell me where you’ve been”.
Written backstage during Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour, which featured Canadian teen Shawn Mendes as the opening act, I Know What You Did Last Summer acts as the lead single from Shawn’s upcoming November 20 album, Handwritten Revisited.
The two vocal powerhouses harmonize throughout the track, while also including ad libbed moments that let both young singers shine. Thanks to Mendes and Cabello, we may have our pick for best duet of the year.
