Shawn Mendes Releases Breakup Ballad 'It'll Be Okay' Following Camila Cabello Split

Mendes released the breakup track just weeks after his split with Camila Cabello.

We are not okay after listening to Shawn Mendes' latest single.

Just two weeks after splitting from Camila Cabello, the 23-year-old singer dropped his latest breakup ballad, "It'll Be Okay."

The slow song has fans speculating if the song is about the couple's separation, pointing to the lyrics, "Are we gonna make it? Is this gonna hurt?" and "I start to imagine a world where we don't collide. It's making me sick but we'll heal and the sun will rise."

He sings going into the chorus, "We don't have to stay. I will love you either way. It'll be okay." 

Mendes teased the song to his followers on Tuesday, sharing a 12-second snippet of the single to Instagram, writing, "'It’ll be okay,' tomorrow 12/1 7:00 p.m. EST."

Last month, Mendes and the 24-year-old "Never Be the Same" singer, announced in a joint statement that they were splitting after two years together.

"We've decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever," the former couple said. "We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends." 

A source recently told ET that the exes both decided on the split prior to announcing it. 

“Shawn and Camila's breakup was mutual,” a source told ET last week. “They realized they are in totally different places in their lives at this point, and it was time to end things. They're both sad about the split, but doing their best to take care of themselves, stay busy and surround themselves by loved ones.”
