In an interview with Variety over the summer, Cabello said, “The reception to ‘Señorita, it’s been so cool to see. Especially because this song was eight months in the making,” she said. “Shawn texted me the idea for the song the song and he was like, ‘Oh my god, this is amazing that you want to do it.’” She went on  to explain that the two went back and forth for months trying to decide if they should actually go through with it. “Finally we were just like, ‘You know what, no pressure, let’s just go to the studio and try to finalize it and see how we feel about it.’ And then two weeks later we made the music video.”
