ALL SONGS

Señorita - Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

The Experience: It felt like ooh-la-la-la... The thrill of someone noticing you for the first time, and letting that attention become much more.
The Vibe: Sultry.
The Topic: Infatuation.
The Value: Love.
The Tension: I should be running (this is going to complicate my life) VS. You keep me coming (I'm attracted to you).

Music video: Three settings: him alone, her alone, and them together. The visuals take them deeper and deeper into love as they notice each other, and then grow closer, and closer, and closer.

The Meaning of Señorita: Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello explore the initial phases of a relationship. Noticing someone. The thrill of them noticing you back. The way that you both conquer and monopolize each other's thoughts. The growing closeness. Although hotel rooms are definitely a point of no return, what the song is trying to explore is that window of time before you both commit. The thrill of what could be... but what isn't complete. Isn't certain. Isn't yet forever. It's the thrill of something beautiful but still dangerous: it will change your life forever if you let it.

Ask yourself: Does your commitment mean that everything and everyone else is off the table?

LYRICS:


I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn't need ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la
It's true la-la-la
Ooh I should be running
Ooh you keep me coming
For ya

Land in Miami
The air was hot from summer rain
Sweat dripping off me
Before I even knew her name la-la-la
It felt like ooh-la-la-la
Yeah, no

Sapphire moonlight
We danced for hours in the sand
Tequila Sunrise
Her body fit right in my hands, la-la-la
It felt like ooh-la-la-la
Yeah

I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn't need ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la
It's true la-la-la
Ooh I should be running
Ooh you know I love it

When you call me Señorita
I wish it wasn't so d-mn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la
It's true la-la-la
Ooh I should be running
Ooh you keep me coming
For ya

Locked in the hotel
There's just some things that never change
You say, "We're just friends."
But friends don't know the way you taste-la-la-la
'Cause you know it's been a long time comin'
Don't you let me fall, oh

Oh, when your lips undress me
Hooked on your tongue
Ooh, love, your kiss is deadly
Don't stop

I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn't need ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la
It's true la-la-la
Ooh I should be running
Ooh you know I love it

I love it when you call me Señorita
I wish it wasn't so damn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh-la-la-la
It's true la-la-la
Ooh I should be running
Ooh you keep me coming
For ya

All along I'll be coming for ya (for ya)
And I hope it meant something to ya
Call my name I'll be comin' for ya (comin' for ya)
Comin' for ya (comin' for ya)

For ya, for ya (oh, she loves it when I call her), for ya
Ooh I should be running
Ooh you keep me coming
For ya
