On Monday (January 21), Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan got the Mendes Army and Directioners all riled up when they hinted at a possible collaboration.

It all started when a fan asked the former One Direction star if he is ever going to release a song with the Canadian pop star (and also posted a pretty epic picture of the two hanging out).

"We're going to try." Niall replied simply.

Shawn didn't like that answer very much and decided to chime in himself. "We ARE going to!" he wrote, retweeting Niall's unenthusiastic answer. "Let's do it then," was the response. Niall's 1D bandmate Liam Payne also got in on the fun and asked if he could play triangle, so if that doesn't actually end up happening we're going to be very disappointed.

Check out the full interaction below.

This isn't the only Shawn Mendes collaboration we're eagerly awaiting. The 20-year-old is also rumored to be featured on Miley Cyrus' upcoming album, and has been teasing us with the promise of a BTS collaboration for way too long now. Could this be the year of the Mendes collab? We can only hope.
