Camila Cabello teams up with Pharrell Williams on this slow-burning slice of summery pop. The salsa-laced jam features a section where Cabello raps in Spanish before the pair join forces on the chorus blending their voices into a melange not unlike the titular beverage. Cabello and Williams previously worked together on the Cuban-born songstress' 2017 hit single "Havana."
"Sangria Wine" was originally recorded for the singer's Camila album, but did not make the final tracklist. The song, however, was performed by Cabello during her Never Be The Same tour. It was eventually released as a single on May 18, 2018.
This was written and produced by Cabello and Williams with additional songwriting from Never Be The Same Tour opener Bia.
Sangria is an alcoholic drink from Spain and Portugal, which mainly consists of red wine and chopped fruit. The best known reference to the beverage in popular music was in Lou Reed's opening lyric from "Perfect Day."
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
