It’s Shawn Mendes birthday and has actually turned 18 years old, this is crazy.
We truly can’t believe he’s now 18, a legal adult! It only feels like yesterday he was a little 15 year old posting covers onto Vine. (Is that still a thing?)
Shawn became the youngest 15 year old to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Hot 100 and remember when he released the ‘Something Big’ video and we all lost our damn minds? That was WAY back in 2014!
Where has the time gone? Almost a year since releasing his first single ‘Life of The Party’, ‘Stitches’ blew up and it seemed like our little Shawn had become the newest sensation. Not forgetting he was only 16 years old when his debut album ‘Handwritten’ came out. Crazy.
Now we’re just waiting until September when we can get our hands all over his next album ‘Illuminate‘. ‘Treat You Better’ is brilliant and it feels like a more mature version of Shawn but still with all the fabulous pop.
Everyone knows Shawn loves Ed Sheeran and John Mayer, and sees them as major music influences and we totally get that vibe. Honestly, we know he’s going to be a big pop name just like those two and we can’t wait to see that happen.
Happy Birthday Shawn, we love you!
