The cute couple received a nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performancefor "Señorita," their steamy second collaboration that was released in June. The singers have some stiff competition in the category, facing off against Ariana Grande and Social House's "Boyfriend," Jonas Brothers' "Sucker," Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, and Post Malone and Swae Lee's "Sunflower."
"Nominated for a Grammy with my favorite person !!!!!!!! @shawnmendes EEEEEEEPPP!!!!!! congrats to all our friends who got nominated too ???," Cabello posted in celebration, sharing a sultry profile shot of the couple with the announcement of their nomination.
This is Mendes' third GRAMMY nod. His first two came at the 2019 GRAMMYs when he was nominated for Song of the Year for "In My Blood" and Best Pop Vocal Album for his self-titled LP. Cabello has previously been nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance for "Havana (Live)" and Best Pop Vocal Album for Camila.
"Señorita" was written by Mendes, Cabello, Charli XCX, Ali Tamposi, Jack Patterson of Clean Bandit, and produced by Andrew Watt, Benny Blanco, and Cashmere Cat. Their steamy music video ignited romance rumors between the two, which would lead to them officially dating.
