Prior to the big show kickoff with Sheeran, the former Fifth Harmony bumped into the pop singer/songwriter and she couldn't have looked more excited. After greeting each other with warm hugs and taking a few shots for photogs, Cabello called her mom over to introduce the pair. "Have we not met before? Did we meet in Miami?" Sheeran asked Sinuhe Cabello. Always the friendly star, Sheeran went on to congratulate her on the release of her new two songs: "Real Friends" and "Never Be the Same."
Unfortunately, Sheeran admitted that he only heard one of the cuts, but both songs are at his fingertips as they come as instant-grat tracks when you pre-order her set, which is scheduled to drop on January 12.
In our previous interview with Cabello, the star admitted that she lost her voice when she recorded the song he wrote for her new LP. "It's awesome. I actually just recut the vocals cause I wanted to do it in a higher key," she told us after her set at the 2017 Billboard Hot 100 Festival. "I was on the phone with him and he was like, 'If you don't lose your voice after this recording session, you didn't do a good job,' and I did lose my voice. I lost my voice [for], like, a week and a half after that and I still have to do ad-libs because I had to stop."
