Romance is pop artist Camila Cabello’s sophomore studio album. The lead singles “Shameless” and “Liar” were revealed in several videos uploaded to her Instagram on September 3, 2019, alongside a post which revealed the album title with the message:

The album’s third single, “Cry for Me” was released a month later, on October 4, 2019. This was followed in quick succession by “Easy”, which she debuted live on Saturday Night Live, alongside the earlier single.
One track on the album features a helping hand from Ed Sheeran, who has previously written a track for Camila. When speaking to Zane Lowe, Camila revealed that Finneas is also featured as a writer on the album, on a song called “Used To This.”
In November 2019, Camila performed two unreleased songs, along with “Shameless”, “Liar”, and “Easy” for an Apple Music Event. These two tracks were “Used To This” and “First Man”, which had leaked a year prior. During the session, she also revealed another track, titled “Dream Of You.”
On November 13, Camila unveiled the album art for Romance, and revealed its release date. She also announced that a fifth single, “Living Proof” would be released that Friday (November 15) in conjunction with the album’s preorder release.
