Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes just struck up an epic bromance! Shawn just dropped his album, ‘Illuminate’ and in a series of tweets, Oct. 5, Justin sent him major love! He told his 88 million followers that he is ‘so proud’ of Shawn! See the amazing tweets here!
Justin Bieber, 22, is spreading the love! Shawn Mendes, 18, just released his highly anticipated album, Illuminate, and Justin loved it so much that he gushed about it on Twitter! The “What Do You Mean” singer first tweeted to “go get” Shawn’s album, that has already nabbed the top spot on Billboard’s Top 200.
Justin showered his fellow Canadian friend with compliments, telling his followers that Shawn “truly” has a “gift to be able to move peoples emotions.” AW! We love seeing Justin support younger artists!

The Biebs even tweeted the Apple iTunes link to listen and buy the Deluxe version of his Illuminate album. Justin’s shoutouts have gotten thousands upon thousands of retweets and likes, and fans are obsessing over their friendship. In fact, Twitter users are begging the singers to team up for an insane collaboration! How awesome would that be?!
While we hope for an epic duet from the talented stars, we’re also hoping for Justin to make a triumphant return to Instagram. He’s still MIA on the photo sharing site, and we’re super bummed about it. In case you forgot, when Justin started getting serious with Sofia Richie, 18, back in July 2016, his ex, Selena Gomez, 24, didn’t really favor the idea of his excessive posts with the model. After fans started to throw hate at Sofia, he told them he would delete his Instagram if the bullying didn’t stop. Well, that’s where Sel came in. She commented on Bieber’s warning, “If you can’t handle the hate, stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol—it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you and supported you before anyone ever did.” Then, just like that, Bieber’s Insta was gone August 16, 2016. It was a sad day…
Justin and Sofia ended their short-lived romance in mid-September 2016. He’s since been on his Purpose World Tour and staying away from the ladies. But, we’re not sure if we can say the same for crazy controversy. The singer is on the European leg of his tour, but according to a new report, he is being ordered back to the states by a judge for a deposition involving a photog! You can check out those details right here.
