It sure seems like Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are an item again. 

First, we spotted them getting flirty at Coachella à la Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny. In case you missed it, the internet was sent into total meltdown on Saturday, April 15 after onlookers spotted (and recorded) Shawn and Camilia dancing, embracing and kissing at the festival, sparking reconciliation rumors two years after their split in 2021.

They spent some time in California in April post-Coachella, attending comedy shows and venturing to different attractions across Venice. Now, one month later, the two were spotted across the country, out and about in New York City. They were shopping in the SoHo neighborhood and enjoying casual dinners out. Call it coincidental, but that's a lot of time to spend with someone you're not seeing, right?! 

"They have been hanging out just the two of them. They are very cute, keep holding hands and laughing," a source revealed to People. "They seem very happy to be reconnected."

Are Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello back together?

Well, it's safe to say there's definitely some unfinished business between them, if nothing else. We're still speculating, however, because neither party has confirmed or denied their romance.

The pair initially started dating in 2019, after, once again, sending fans into a frenzy following their very steamy music video for "Senorita" before calling it quits two years later. Since then, Shawn Mendes' girlfriend sitch has been quite the hot topic, with a ton of speculation surrounding him and fellow singer Sabrina Carpenter. Now it seems as though those Shawn and Sabrina murmurings were slightly off the mark—but are Shawn and Camila actually back on?

They were definitely giving off rekindled vibes, plus there's also another video making the rounds online where Camila's friend seemingly confirms Camila's dating sitch with Shawn.

The clip sees someone following Camila with two of her friends—all laughing together, with Shawn following close behind—before asking her if she and Shawn were back together, to which her friend chimes: "Yes!" 

Camila continued to laugh, and when the person filming then asked Shawn, he ignored the question but proceeded to call Camila over to him, smiling. Definitely compelling but of course, the pair are yet to officially confirm if they are actually back together or whether it was just a festival fling. 

That being said, they were definitely giving 2021 Shawn and Camila vibes and let's just say fans are pretty darn excited by the possibility of a reunion...

Some heartbroken Swiftie's also found some comfort in the news: "I just found out Shawn and Camila got back together and I felt the joe and taylor trauma heal a bit."

Another fan also had a very relatable reaction to all the latest celeb relationship news, including Millie Bobby Brown's engagement, writing: "Camila gettin back w shawn, millie gettin engaged, people r getting their life together and I'm still unemployed crying in the corner of my room." Yep, that hits.

Alas, we'll have to wait and see if this really is Shawn and Camila 2.0, but what a ride! But you better believe we have our eyes peeled now.
