Five weeks have passed since the publication on Instagram that showed Camilo with Canadian superstar Shawn Mendes, which had triggered the alarms of his followers about a possible collaboration. And that song arrived this Wednesday with the publication of the remix of “KESI”, a song in which for the first time in his career we heard Shawn Mendes singing in Spanish.
The collaboration, says Sony Music, Camilo’s record label, arose after a direct message in which Shawn Mendes told the Colombian how much he liked the song, which is part of “My hands”, Camilo’s second album.

“I never thought of remixing him until one of my favorite artists, Shawn Mendes, proposed it to me directly. Being a big fan of his music, the very idea of listening to him singing in Spanish is something that made me very excited,” said Camilo through a statement.
“The fact that he decided to sing in our language for the first time in his career in a song with me is one of the greatest honors I have had in my career as an artist. It is a song full of life, smiles, energy and contagious happiness like no other and the friendship that unites us is so honest and close that it encourages and gives spirit to this collaboration, “added the Colombian singer-songwriter.
Shawn Mendes, for his part, said that Camilo’s energy is one of the aspects that stands out the most in this collaboration.
“My favorite part of working with Camilo is being around him, his energy is contagious and beautiful. When we met there was an immediate click, and I feel like it’s so much easier to work with someone once you feel like you’re friends with him. you get a lot more excited about the release, “Mendes said in a statement.
