In the song, Cabello uses religious imagery to describe her relationship with her lover, in addition to a falsetto used "in stomping and catchy chorus". The song's opening contains a sample of a recording by Andy Jones for his The Africa Heartwood Project, which contains orphans singing.
Cabello first teased the song in February 2019. She later announced the song's release on November 13, 2019. Cabello has stated that the song is one of her favorites she wrote for Romance, stating that it was "her way of coping as a hopeless romantic".
Music video Edit
The official music video, directed by Alan Ferguson, was released on November 24, 2019, the night of her American Music Awards performance. It was inspired by the John Everett Millais painting Ophelia, which depicted the fictional Shakespearean character floating in a pool covered in flowers. Throughout the video, she is seen frolicking with a group of dancers and laying in a bed of petals. As of January 2020, it has over 12.8 million views and 415 thousand likes on YouTube.
Live performances Edit
Cabello debuted the song at the American Music Awards, where she also performed "Señorita" alongside Shawn Mendes and "Shake It Off" alongside Taylor Swift and Halsey. On December 5, 2019 Cabello performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, as well as on The Ellen DeGeneres Show the next day.
