Camila Cabello just teased her new song "Bam Bam." Why do fans think the single references her ex Shawn Mendes.

Fans have been quick to react to Camila Cabello's newest song "Bam Bam," which won't officially release until March 4.

After the 24-year-old singer teased the single on TikTok on February 27, followers started to wonder if the song was about her ex Shawn Mendes. And while Cabello has yet to confirm the inspiration behind the tune, there are quite a few convincing clues.

For instance, the snippet opens with Cabello singing, "You said you hated the ocean, but you're surfin' now." And Mendes once told Jimmy Fallon his "biggest fear is deep water." Still, social media investigators pointed out that the "Stitches" singer posted photos of himself surfing just days after fans learned about his and Cabello's split in November.

Cabello also sings, "I said I'd love you for life, but I just sold our house." And indeed, the Havana star did sell her Los Angeles home for a cool $4.3 million in December.

Need more than that? In another part of the song, Cabello wrote, "We were kids at the start, I guess we're grown-ups now." The musicians' followers know their relationship goes back to when they were teens, touring together in 2014 and releasing their hit "I Know What You Did Last Summer" the following year.

They would spark romance rumors for years, turning up the heat with their sizzling duet "Señorita" in 2019, and Cabello has admitted the fire was there early on.

Cabello isn't the only one dropping easter egg-filled lyrics. Mendes also appeared to allude to their breakup with the December release of "It'll Be Okay," filled with lines like,

"I start to imagine a world where we don't collide. It's making me sick, but we'll heal, and the sun will rise. If you tell me you're leaving, I'll make it easy. It'll be okay."

"Bam Bam," which also features Ed Sheeran, officially drops March 4.
