Yin & Yang is the first extended play (EP) by American singer and songwriter Cameron Dallas. It was released on October 19, 2018, by Retrofuture Records. Primarily produced by Dre & Vidal, who serve as executive producers alongside Cameron Dallas.

Yin & Yang is divided in two sides, a softer side (Yin) and an rougher side (Yang), with self-written compositions focused on Dallas' history with singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes before turning into an official relationship. The EP was supported by the singles, "My Boo" and the number one hit single "Expectations". It received generally favorable reviews and debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200.

Background and release[]

In an official statement, Dallas confirmed to be working on a project inspired by "personal things from his life", what would start a wave of rumors involving his a possibility of a past relationship with Shawn Mendes during the Magcon Tour alongside other young Viners with a large following on social media in 2014. As a way to create buzz for his future releases, Dallas appeared as one of the featured artists on DJ Khaled's single "No Brainer" along with Chance The Rapper and Quavo.
