The Canadian singer has just released Summer of Love, his new single, which is expected to anticipate his highly anticipated fifth studio album. Let’s find out some more information about Shawn’s new song.
Summer of Love is the new single from singer Shawn Mendes in collaboration with Puerto Rican producer Tainy, who has produced songs for J Balvin, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Rosalia.
It is a pop song with reggaeton influences, typical of Taney’s works, which tells the intensity of a love story lived during the summer season. As reported by JustJared, in an official statement, Shawn Mendes described the song as a hymn to lightness and freedom.
“I hope this song makes people feel light, free from the burden of life, even if just for a moment. The inspiration for the text came to me a couple of months ago as I was preparing to spend the summer with the people I love. My favourite part of creating this song was being able to collaborate with Tainy. It was a unique experience. He is an incredible artist and an exceptional producer.”
In addition to the leading digital platforms, Summer of Love was also released on YouTube. The video was directed by Matty Peacock, who had previously collaborated with Shawn Mendes for the video for Wonder. It was shot in Mallorca, Spain, where the singer spent a few weeks on vacation with his friends.
The friends, in fact, also appear in the video, having fun with Shawn while they go around in a convertible car, take a bath in the crystal clear waters or celebrate inside a club. Finally, for those of us who love gossip, we cannot fail to underline how the lyrics of Summer of Love makes us understand that the song is dedicated to Camilla Cabello.
Shawn Mendes sings: “I used to call you my senorita / I didn’t know you needed you so much / I hated every time I had to leave you”.
These verses are an apparent reference to the song Senorita, sung by Shawn and Camilla in 2019 and helped draw attention to the two singers as the new couple of America.
