Ed Sheeran revealed that he and Camila Cabello have recorded a song together, and they will be releasing it in 2022.
“South of the Border” Previously United Ed and Camila in 2019
Ed and Camila previously collaborated for Ed’s No. 6 Collaborations Project album in 2019 on “South of the Border,” which also featured rapper Cardi B. On that album, Ed also worked with other A-list artists such as Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, and Khalid. On the other hand, Camila joined forces with Myke Towers and Tainy in 2021’s “Oh Na Na.”
When asked on BBC Radio 1 if Camila is featured on his next single, he shared, “No, but actually we have done a song together that is going to come out next year.”
Future Plans and Dreams Came True
Ed is to tour his latest album = next year, and he is looking forward to getting a better idea of which of his new tunes are loved by his fans. “I’m just really excited to be in front of fans doing live music again. You release an album and just sort of assume people like it because it went to number one. But you don’t really know what songs people like or what songs they connect to. I did a show the other day and I started singing Overpass Graffiti and they were the loudest on that song. I was like, ‘Oh, people actually like this one.’”
News of the upcoming collaboration arrives just after Camila confessed that Ed and Taylor Swift are her songwriting “heroes.” “I’ve been lucky to have people at different times show me kindness,” she said. “When I was like 16, 17, and I was still in Fifth Harmony, I fell in love with songwriting. I remember approaching Taylor Swift and being like, ‘Hey, what do you do when you’re in a writing slump?’ or whatever, asking her for advice, and she showed me a lot of kindness. Ed Sheeran too. These were my songwriting heroes, so I was stoked that they were even talking to me.”
