South of the Border was released on Friday, July 12. The single is on Ed’s latest album, No. 6 Collaborations Project. The upbeat tune finds Ed and Camila, getting seductive on the Latin-inspired track, as they sing: “So join me in this bed/push up on me and sweat, darling/So I’m gonna put my time in/I won’t stop til the angels sing.” Kulture’s mother adds her signature Bronx-flare towards the end. The 22-year-old Cuban-American songstress celebrated the single and her two collaborators. "Go listen to this project NOWWWW!!!!! also me @teddysphotos and the incredible, unstoppable @iamcardib (her verse in this is literally my favorite thing), we have a song on here #SouthOfTheBorder so go listen to that too!!! my fave is remember the name!!!"
During the creation of the song, the Havana singer had a pinch me moment. Camila shared a clip of her and Ed in the studio creating he perfect verse, and the moment she blew him away while singing acapella. “I just saw it in the car and had this weird surreal feeling of being 13 years old listening to “be like you” and “autumn leaves” and “fall”- this guy right here is one of the most meaningful artists in my life and 13 year old me would never believe this video,” she wrote next to the clip.

“I know we’re friends now so sorry for the not playing cool moment, but genuinely, this is a sick full circle, special moment for me, being on a song with an artist that’s meant so f– much to me. I have so many memories with these man’s songs. And he’s such a lovely person!!! I’m just emotional. life is wild. Dreams are wild.” These three little stars proved that anything is possible.
