The duo have topped the charts with Senorita.
Shawn Mendes has said he is “thankful and excited” after landing the number one spot with Camila Cabello with their single Senorita.

They now settle at number two.
Mendes said: “Thank-you so much to our UK fans for the overwhelming support on the song. We are so thankful and excited to get a UK number one.”
Cabello added: “I’m so excited that you guys made this song number one in the UK.
“And sharing this with Shawn is so fun and so special. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you, and I can’t wait to be there soon.”
The song claimed the top spot after it was streamed 8.2 million times in the UK, according to the Official Charts Company.
