Shawn Mendes revealed he was nervous about perfecting his Spanish for his latest song collaboration with Camilo, however he luckily had his girlfriend Camila Cabello by his side!

 

The Canadian singer surprised his fans on the release of the ‘Kesi’ remix, singing with the Colombian star and admitting he was very excited to join in the incredible song, despite being in a different language.

“It reminded me so much of why I fell in love with music in the first place, writing music in the first place. And in a completely different language, I was getting the feeling from him so deeply,” Shawn shared.

Camilo also confessed he was thrilled to have Shawn recording a verse for his song, not just for his participation, but because he also wanted to sing a verse in Spanish.

“Just the idea of Shawn singing in Spanish is something that brings me so much joy and excitement,” Camilo explained.
