Sheeran and Cabello trade verses — him singing about “brown eyes, caramel thighs” and her calling out those “green eyes, givin’ me signs” as she flows from English to Spanish — on the flirtatious track that’s topped off with a bridge by Cardi B. (Cabello’s already announced that Cardi’s contribution to the song “is literally my favorite thing.”)
“South of the Border” is one of the 15 collaborative tracks on Sheeran’s No. 6 Collaborations Project, which was released Friday (July 12).
“My momma said go listen to SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Ed Sheeran ,Camila Cabello and Me for brighter underarms,” Cardi teased on social media Saturday, the day after Sheeran’s latest project dropped, along with a collage of childhood photos of the trio.
