Throughout her “Never Be The Same” tour, pop star Camila Cabello performed a new song called “Sangria Wine.”
The song was developed in collaboration with Pharrell, who actually accompanied Cabello to perform the track at a show in Los Angeles.
On the heels of that performance, Cabello posted an Instagram photo inviting her followers to “get ready for some Sangria Wine.” Headline Planet subsequently revealed that Columbia Records (Pharrell’s label) planned to formally promote the song to mainstream radio. A target release date had not, however, been confirmed.
That arrival is evidently imminent; Cabello and Pharrell each shared teasers for the song on their social media accounts Wednesday morning. More specific details on the release should come very soon.
Rumors – buoyed by screenshots from an apparent TV commercial – have also emerged suggesting the two will perform the song at this Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
The news is naturally generating excitement from music fans, who reacted positively to Cabello’s performances on the “Never Be The Same” tour.
Headline Planet referred to the song as a “future hit” in its review of the tour.
