SWAG! Shawn Mendes reveals his hidden hip-hop side on ‘Radio 1’s Live Lounge’ and we are dead

Shawn Mendes was last featured on Radio 1’s Live Lounge in February and quite a lot has changed since then…

  • ‘Illuminate’ was released in September (and it’s been on repeat ever since)
  • He toured the world supporting with first album ‘Handwritten’.
  • Shawn even SOLD OUT Madison Square Garden, New York. Impressive!

And just in case you need a reminder, he really is this beautiful.

Shawn covered fellow Canadian, Drake’s ‘Fake Love’ and it is just too good. He stripped it back with an intimate performance of just vocals and electric guitar (think ‘Love Yourself’ by Justin Bieber).

Of course, Shawn’s loyal fans tweeted to show their support.


We couldn’t agree more with you all!

In the interview with Clara Amfo, Shawn also promised UK tour dates in early 2017 too. Keep your eyes peeled people!
