Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello - I Know What You Did Last Summer

December 02, 2015 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

One of my favourite new songs this year. One that has a killer backing track and vocal, along with perfect lyrics, I just can't help but sing out loud. The song easily gets stuck in my head. Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello create a stormy relationship in this amazing performance based music video which is set in a theoretical storm to which is about to ensue.

Shawn Mendes is one of my favourite new singers I've come across. His hit single "Stitches" is vocally brilliant and has a cracking video to accompany it. I recently bought his album, which got to number 12 on the UK albums chart and it definitely has some brilliant tracks on there. Camila Cabello is one fifth of pop group Fifth Harmony, who are currently working on their second album. They have admitted that they can't promise they won't eventually break up, leaving harmonizers everywhere sad as they await the eventuality. I am a fan of all five girls, from when they first appeared on The X Factor US. And in the event of a break up, I'd end up buying each of the girls future releases as I don't have a favourite and I like all of them equally. This is Camila Cabello's first single without her band mates with her, and her vocals are stunning. The song was written by Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Ido Zmishlany, Noel Zancanella and Bill Withers. It has yet to chart in the UK, and it doesn't look promising. Both artists sing the song perfectly and I really wish more people would hear this, as it definitely deserves a high charting position.

Directed by Ryan Pallotta, simple but effective. I love the idea of the backing storm that builds and builds and the two singers walking towards each other but never breaking the distance between them. It really adds to the background of the song, and interprets the song well.

If a guy knew what a girl did last summer, where she probably cheated on him, he would be furious right? Hence the storm, it would be a stormy argument.

The real question is whether they are officially together or not, rumours of them dating and various social media photos has got both their fans queued in ready for their announcement.

Overall a perfect video for a perfect song, and they definitely look very sexy and steamy in this video, surprising what a little bit of rain can do. This is officially stuck in my head now, but was totally worth reviewing to see this perfect performance based video.
