About Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes released his self-titled debut EP (2014) and his debut studio album Handwritten (2015), whose single “Stitches” reached number one in the United Kingdom and the top 10 in the United States and Canada. He then released his second studio album Illuminate (2016), whose singles “Treat You Better” and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” reached the top 10 in several countries. His self-titled third studio album (2018) was supported by the lead single “In My Blood”. All three albums debuted atop the US Billboard 200, with the first one making Mendes one of five artists to ever debut at number one before the age of 18, and the third one making him the third-youngest artist to earn three number one albums. Mendes is also the first artist to land three number one singles on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart (2017) and four number one singles on the Adult Pop Songs chart (2018) before the age of 20.

To promote the album, Mendes will embark on his self-titled world tour in 2019. Besides the tour, he performed at various music festivals across Europe, North America and South America. He performed at a televised concert honouring the 92nd birthday of Queen Elizabeth II on April 21, 2018. He made TV show appearances on The Late Late Show with James Corden in June where he sang one of his latest singles each night for a week. The tracks he performed live were “Nervous”, “Lost in Japan”, “Perfectly Wrong”, and the duet with Julia Michaels “Like to be You”. Mendes made an appearance on the late-night talk show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in October and performed Lost in Japan. He, together with Fallon and the show’s resident band The Roots, performed a special version of “Treat You Better” for the show’s Classroom Instruments series. He has also performed his latest singles on the iHeartRadio MMVAs in Canada on August 27, where he received eight nominations and won four awards.
