It’s actually dangerous
August 3rd, 2014
Canadian singer Shawn Mendes is continuing his quest to conquer the pop world with his third song, The Weight, off his debut EP The Shawn Mendes EP. The new video comes as the third installment in Mendes’ one-take lyric video series, which already includes Life of the Party and Show You.
Like the first two videos, The Weight features Mendes performing the song in one take, with the same black tee and brown flannel shirt combo, making all three videos appear to be happening in the same night.
Unlike Life of the Party and Show You, The Weight is a dark track, diving deep into a story of heartbreak and betrayal, showing layers to the young singer. In the video, a distraught Mendes walks through his home while in despair, even throwing a pizza. I don’t want to ever be that sad.
Mendes is on a fast-track to superstardom, with his EP hitting number one on iTunes in an incredible 37 minutes. The teen signer is currently on tour with Austin Mahone and is set to release his debut album later this year.Tweet
