Dreamy visual for Tainy and Neon16-produced track was shot in Mollorca, Spain
Shawn Mendes and Tainy have dropped the video for new single “Summer of Love.” The dreamy visual for the Tainy and Neon16-produced track was filmed in Mallorca, Spain.
In the Matty Peacock-directed clip, Mendes and his friends are living it up vacation style as they cruise around in convertibles, dive into pristine waters, hang out on boats, and toast in nightclubs. “It was the summer of love/A delicate daydream,” Mendes sings. “And for a couple of months/It felt like we were 18.”
According to Rolling Stone, while talking about his new song, Mendes said, “I hope this song makes people feel free, free from the weight of life, even if just for a moment,” Mendes said in a statement. “The inspiration was getting a few months off to have a real summer with the people I love. My favorite part about creating it was getting the opportunity to work in the studio with Tainy. It was a special experience connecting with him since he’s such an incredible artist and amazing producer.”
While fans are already going crazy over this new Mendes track, his girlfriend Camila Cabello has also reacted to it. Cabello took to Instagram to share the music video of Summer of Love and gave her verdict on what she thinks about her beau’s new song. On her Instagram story, Cabello wrote, “I love this video and this song so much.”
In an interview with Bustle magazine, Camila Cabello labels her relationship with singer Shawn Mendes as built on “sweetness and tenderness”. She says she is lucky to have a “nurturing partner” like him. “I probably have a nurturing attitude because I also like being nurtured. I’m lucky that my partner is the same way. There’s a lot of sweetness and tenderness,”
Camila Cabello added: “I think we’re both sensitive. I’m really lucky to be able to surround myself with tenderness; it’s really important to me.”
