In an interview with Variety, Cabello shared the back story behind the record-breaking song, revealing that she and Mendes went back and forth for months trying to decide if they should actually go through with it.

“The reception to ‘Señorita,’ it’s been so cool to see. Especially because this song was eight months in the making,” Cabello said. “Shawn texted me the idea for the song, and he was like, ‘Oh my god, this is amazing that you want to do it.’”

“Finally we were just like, ‘You know what, no pressure, let’s just go to the studio and try to finalise it and see how we feel about it,’” she continued.

“And then two weeks later we made the music video.”

The VMAs will take place Monday, Aug. 26 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
