Camila Cabello released a new video titled "What Do I Know About Love?" on Saturday, August 31, in which she delivers a moving and deeply poetic speech about the nature of love and what it means to her. The cryptic video led fans to believe new music is on the way—and that Shawn Mendes is the inspiration behind her new album.
"Where does the love go when it runs out? When does it leave? Why does it die," she asks in the beginning of the clip. "Do you kill it in one violent blow? Or is it a million unattended, unhealed little cuts and scratches?"
Seconds later, Cabello says, “What do I know about love? Everything. It will bring you to your knees—if you did it right. What I know for sure about love is that you never come out of it the same."
The "Havana" singer, who has been teasing that her second solo album will be inspired by her life and experiences, then goes on to describe what, for her, it feels to be in love with someone.
“I know when you fall in love, you feel like you're the first and only two people in the world,” Cabello continues. “Every kiss, every touch, every caress is like something you feel nobody has ever felt before. And you think, has everybody that’s ever fallen in love before just walked around this nonchalantly the whole time?”
"What I know for sure is falling in love with life itself makes an artist out of everyone," she adds. "I thought I was making art before. Writing songs was me making art, but now I want my life to be the work of art and my songwriting to be the camera that I take a picture of it with. It's what I'm living. That's the art."
Cabello's cryptic video comes after the end of her two-year relationship with ex Matthew Hussey and amid a rumored romance with Mendes. Following the breakup and the release of their music video for"Señorita," she and the Canadian singer have been spotting kissing and holding hands in public on multiple occasions. The two also delivered a steamy performance during the 2019 MTV VMAs just last week.
Despite spending all summer together, Cabello and Mendes have yet to confirm their relationship. This hasn't stopped fans from coming up with their own conclusions about what this cryptic video means, though.
