Happy birthday, Shawn Mendes! One of our favorite pop stars is turning 17 today, August 8. Can you believe that someone so accomplished is so young?
It’s Shawn Mendes‘ 17th birthday, and we’ve got to help him celebrate! The “Stitches” and “After Taste” singer has had such a great year, and we know next year is going to be even better! From new music and collaborations, to hints about a debut album(!), Shawn’s been making waves all year long! We just hope he has a happy birthday!
Shawn really started his year off right — going on tour with Austin Mahone and Fifth Harmony! The youngster said that life on the road was “unreal,” and just gushed about the support he’s had from fans. It must be such a dream to go from posting YouTube videos of your music, to rocking out on stage in front of thousands of people!
He later made us all swoon with the release of another hit, “Something Big,” with an amazing video to match! How many videos have you seen that feature alpacas and someone dressed like an owl? Shortly after that dropped, Shawn drove fans crazy with an important announcement: his debut album was dropping in February 2015! Handwritten is so, so good; he should be so proud of his work!
The rest of the year, Shawn just continued to make our jaws drop with performances of his gorgeous music. From “After Taste” to “Never Be Alone,” to “A Little Too Much,” it’s all gold. We’ve definitely abused the replay button while jamming to these tunes.
Shawn’s got a promising list of collaborations as well. His duet with Hailee Steinfeld on “Stitches” was utterly beautiful, and the music video was just adorable. He’s also got Taylor Swift on his list of potential collabs, too. We would love to see that happen!
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Shawn a happy birthday in the comments!
