“I Know What You Did Last Summer,” the RIAA gold single duet by Shawn and Camila Cabello of Fifth Harmony, has gone Top 15 at Pop Radio, Top 10 on iTunes, Top 20 on the U.S. Spotify chart, and Top 30 on Spotify’s Global Top 50. The video for “IKWYDLS” is currently past 35 million YouTube views. Shawn and Camila wrote the song together backstage in his green room at a Taylor Swift 1989 Tour show last summer, and recorded it secretly in New York and Los Angeles.
When Handwritten, now double platinum with a total of 2 million adjusted sales, entered Soundscan at #1 last year, it made Shawn the youngest artist in nearly five years to chart a #1 album on the Billboard 200. “IKWYDLS” follows up Shawn’s run of consecutive hit singles “Life of The Party” (RIAA platinum), “Something Big” (RIAA platinum) and “Stitches” (RIAA 4x-platinum). “Stitches” went to #1 on US Pop radio, nearing pole position at the Hot AC formats and has become a certifiable airplay and sales smash around the world. In addition to topping the official singles chart in the UK this week, the single has hit #1 on iTunes in over 20 markets and reached Top 5 on the Global Spotify chart. Shawn also took home the MTV EMA for Best New Artist and the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Breakout Artist.
