We haven’t exactly been keeping our feelings for teen singer Shawn Mendes a secret. We listed ten reasons why we’re obsessed with the rising star. We named him one of our five Canadian artists that are about to explode.
We know that Shawn is cute as a button and posts hilarious Vine videos to his almost three million followers, but we also know that he is killing it with his music. Mendes’ released his debut EP earlier this week, which hit number one on iTunes in two days. Pause for applause. Shawn has now gifted us once more this week with a new video.
In his lyric video for Show You, Mendes masters the one-take visual as he leaves his guitar behind and walks down a street, showing off his singing and rapping skills. The latter is likely a nod to Ed Sheeran’s work, an artist Mendes has credited as a huge inspiration for his sound. If you’re going to draw inspiration from a singer/songwriter, who better than Ed Sheeran, right?
Here is Shawn literally ‘showing us’ how great his music is to listen to.
Music notes are literally coming out of his body.
Mendes is currently on tour with Austin Mahone and Fifth Harmony and plans on releasing his full debut album later this year. We shall wait patiently for the album and try to not be creepy about it.Tweet
