"My song comes on the radio or something and I’m like, ‘Everything’s about you. They’re all … They have always been about you,'... She goes, ‘What do you mean?’ I’m like, they’re all about you. Like every song I’ve ever wrote," Mendes revealed in his documentary 'In Wonder'. 

After a friendship filled with romantic tension, the duo released their monster hit 'Señorita' that led to rumours of them dating in June of 2019. In September, Mendes confirmed that they were a couple.

On James Corden's show, Cabello recalled when Corden insisted five years before “there’s no way you two aren’t a couple.”

Cabello said, "He was like ‘I like her, she’s the one that doesn’t like me’ or something like that."
