"I've always loved him."
Camila Cabello's second studio album Romance has finally arrived and the tape has been released following her true-life romance with Canadian singer, Shawn Mendes.

"[...] that song is really special because I just feel like I really painted the details of, like, when you're first dating someone that you've been friends with for a really long time," she said of the 13th track 'Used To This.' "It just feels like, 'Oh, my God, we're kissing now!' I think I just really captured what that moment felt like for me."
Camila then detailed how the claims of their relationship being a publicity stunt didn't affect her and her sweet note about loving Shawn on Instagram is really how she feels. "I've said that a lot. I mean, because I do, obviously, like, I love him in the 'He's my boyfriend' way," she said. "But I've always loved him. I just love him, you know?"
As for her album finally being released, Camila said it feels like "having a child."
"My second child," she added. "It feels super emotional for me. This is like this chapter in my life that I'm basically closing and giving to people."
