Cabello also opened up about the breakup in an interview with Zane Lowe. She explained that her priorities had recently changed. “My focus was just, how can I live a happy life and be in a healthy, happy relationship? I was doing a lot of therapy. My focus really changed.”

The “Havana” singer went on to add, “And even now, when I’m in promo mode, honestly, if I’m not having fun, what’s the point? I think as I get older, yeah, the priorities change. We both started so young too, we’re really learning to be healthy adults. And that sometimes means your priority isn’t your career. And that’s okay.

Months after the split, the two successful artists released new singles. Cabello recently released a song with Ed Sheeran called “Bam Bam”. Mendes released “It’ll Be Okay” in December.
