Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello-I Know What You Did Last Summer

Shawn Mendes, the Vine star, who made his breakthrough with the single, "Stitches," collaborated with Fifth Harmony's Camila Cabello for Shawn's newest release "I Know What You Did Last Summer." I have checked out some more of Shawn's music, and it is predominately guided by the acoustic guitar with a pop background. "I Know What You Did Last Summer" stays true to this form. Seeing as Mendes is relatively new, this style may work for him for a while. It has a bit of an Ed Sheeran vibe that works well. Mendes and Cabello have a nice sound together, with good harmonies and simple, smooth voices. The song revolves around infidelity where Cabello is the unfaithful partner in the relationship. The two have moments where they sing the same lines but in different person, such as Mendes singing: "she's slipping away," while Cabello sings: "I'm slipping away." The chorus is a bit repetitive, but that seems to be what every pop song relies on doing anymore, so the fault really can't be blamed on the duo.
