This is so exciting! HollywoodLife.com caught up with Shawn Mendes backstage at the 2016 American Music Awards, and he told us that a joint project with Justin Bieber could be in the works. So will the two heartthrobs be recording a song together anytime soon? Here’s the answer!
Shawn Mendes, 19, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that he’d love to team up with Justin Bieber, 22, on a song! “Yes, maybe one day,” Shawn revealed. That would just be so amazing and Canadian that we would be unable to handle it. We can totally see Shawn’s sweet vocals meshing perfectly with a head-banging JB beat!
ICYMI, Shawn is basically the new Justin, except that Shawn is better behaved. He gave a beautiful performance of “Treat You Better” and “Mercy” at the AMAs on Nov. 20, putting his heart and soul into it. “Thank you @AMAs amazing night,” Shawn gushed on Instagram after the big night. Love this kid!
Anyway, it’s safe to say that Shawn loves being part of a team! As we previously told you, Shawn teased a collaboration with Niall Horan to us exclusively back in July, and it became a reality — sort of — when the two sang “Mercy” together on Instagram (check out the video above). Hopefully we’ll get a full-fledged song from the duo soon!
If you’re dying to see him in person, Shawn is currently on his world tour, and if you haven’t grabbed tix yet, make sure you do so here! More tickets for the North American leg have just been released in case you missed out on the sale for your city.
