The artist also shared an emotional message on Facebook in November 2016 saying, 'I'm not a kid anymore, and more and more I'm realizing that the weirdness of those Mylar balloons is going to be okay. Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record - well, this one is about what comes next."

I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You'll have to hold on.

But no matter how sad she may feel about the fallout, Cabello was ready to tell her own story.

Rae Sremmurd spent the afternoon at a golf club where they turn the gentlemen's sport into a chill party that lasts far into the night. Dressed in their golfing best, the brothers and their friends pass blunts, do keg stands and cut loose with older members of the club. The video even cuts between modern-looking camera shots and moments captured on a 1980s video camera to lend "Swang" a throwback feel.
