Camila Cabello surprised fans on Sunday with the music video for “Living Proof” just ahead of her American Music Awards performance.
After she posted the video on Twitter, her boyfriend Shawn Mendes had a few questions for her.
“Wait who’s this guy?!” he teased about the shirtless mystery man in the video.
Cabello then shared a behind-the-scenes of the making of the video and said how she wanted it to be about “femininity.”
It comes around 10 days after she released the lyric video.
“PREORDER FOR ROMANCE 🌹 IS LIVE NOW I JUST CANT WAIT,” Cabello wrote at the time.
As for the new single, “Living Proof”, Cabello said it’s “ONE OF MY FAVE SONGS I WROTE FOR THE ALBUM.”
“‘There’s God in every move…. and you’re the living proof,'” she wrote, quoting her new song’s lyrics. “❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I hope you guys love it as much as I do.”
The incredibly romantic, sensual song includes lovingly idealized lyrics describing a perfect romance — which will undoubtedly be interpreted by some to refer to her relationship with Shawn Mendes.
“Tell me something, but say it with your hands, slow/ When you touch me, paint me like a Van Gogh (Oh)/ I wanna study every inch of you/ ‘Til you trust me to make the angels come through, Cabello sings in the dreamy tune, later crooning, “Countin’ freckles, as they run down your spine/ Show your demons, and I might show you mine.”
The new music was released just hours after Cabello received the Best Pop Song Award at this year’s Latin GRAMMYs for her duet with Alejandro Sanz, “Mi Persona Favorita”.
Cabello wasn’t at the event — where she was also nominated for Song of the Year and Record of the Year — because she was in New York City at the First Annual Time 100 Next gala. However, she took to Twitter to share her excitement and appreciation for the win.
“I cANNOT BELIEVE that 1. I got to write a song with a person that I look up to so much 2. That he’s become such a good friend to me 3. That we wrote this song me thinking of my sister and him his baby, 4. That we WON A @LatinGRAMMYs FOR IT!!!! MI QUERIDO AMIGO @AlejandroSanz,” she tweeted.
