It's the first time the pair has worked together, and the moment was made possible after Mendes reached out to Camilo over DM. "I was like listening to, I heard KESI And I was like, I'm obsessed with this song. I'm just going to, I slid in his DMS and I was like, 'Please let me do a verse on this song because I'm obsessed with it,'" the "Señorita" singer told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1.
Camilo said in a statement that he wasn't planning on releasing a remix of "Kesi," off his chart-topping Mis Manos album, but when Mendes proposed the idea, it was an immediate yes. "Being a big fan of his music, the pure idea of hearing him singing in Spanish is something that made me so excited. The fact that he decided to sing in our language for the first time in his career on a song with me is one of the greatest honors I've had in my career as an artist."
