Despite the playful persona that Shawn Mendes displays on his songs he has actually been working very hard. Ever since Shawn became a celebrated pop star, he had been making extreme effort to grow in the music industry. While there a number of tested ways to grow in the music industry the Canadian star chose to forge his path. He experimented on a number of styles both good and bad in combination with his unique sound and that effort is what resulted in the fabulous track showcased on his self-named album. A lot of years have passed since the star released his debut album and with those years he has acquired a lot of experience in respect to romance and women. Consequently, his sound on the songs is more mature and believable. There is something in the way he sang on this album that will convince you that he knew exactly what he was talking about. From day one, Shawn always had a different perspective from youths his age. He always went for the best. Not surprisingly, his albums sound better with each release. He put an unusual amount of effort in this album though. Firstly, he collaborated with a handful of artists when he was recording this album. Secondly, he did not just play the role of song creator but he was also the executive producer of the album. In a way, young Shawn has become his own boss. The album was an extreme success though. The album topped the charts in both his home country, the United States, Australia, Belgium and three other countries. It debuted in the top three in the United Kingdom. If that is not an example of commercial success to you then your opinions are henceforth irrelevant.
Released in 2018, 14 tracks, 49 min
The title King of Pop has always been Michael Jackson, but that was in the yesteryears. Before the boom of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, the King of Pop was Justin Bieber. In today’s music industry, Shawn Mendes has dominated the music industry thanks to his catchy songs, memorable lyrics, his handsome looks, and his charming personality. The 20-year-old Canadian born singer has been charting all around the world ever since his breakout hit Stitches, he has collaborated with Camila Cabello, Zedd, and many others, and his biggest hit to date is his 2019 single, “If I Can’t Have You” – I personally like Shawn as an artist, and a person, because he is genuinely nice, and it shines through in his interviews, and fan encounters. Since Shawn will visit Manila this October 10, 2019 at the Mall of Asia Arena (promotion!), let’s take a look at two of my personal favorite songs as well as his latest single.
The Canadian heartthrob Shawn Mendes released his third studio album and narcissistically, all joked, titled it after himself. The pop album consists of fourteen tracks and two features, both Khalid and Julia Michaels. He released the promotional single from Shawn Mendes titled “In My Blood,” and it was stuck in my head almost instantly. In fact, it made me want to listen to this album, but for some reason I waited a year to get around to it… am I procrastinating, lazy, or busy- the world may never know.
Canadian singer Shawn Mendes has recently became one of the most recognized and popular artists all over the world. Being only 19 years old and making such an amazing progress and success in music world surely must be hard but he's doing it one album at a time gaining popularity and making his fandom bigger every day! His latest album, created in 2018, is a self-titled album Shawn Mendes. It is the third studio album Shawn has made in his young career. It has dropped on May 25th 2018 when Shawn made a YouTube live stream which contained some teasers for his new album and finally after midnight on the April 26th 2018, he released the pre-order and the track list for the album on all of his social media profiles. Shawn Mendes has released one of his singles before the actual album releasing and it is called “In My Blood” - which became the most popular single of this album, and there are also promotional singles: “Lost In Japan” ,“Youth” (which is collaboration with singer Khalid) , “Where Were You in the Morning?” and “Nervous” , which have been released before the release of the album. Julia Michaels, talented American singer and songwriter, has been featured on Shawn's album in a song called "Like To Be You".
In many cases it is inevitable that one begins to listen to a disc and after the third song begins to feel anxious to discover something that surprises you, that forces you to stay to listen to the last song and that moment does not arrive. Other times, impatient, we begin to go from song to song quickly because at the beginning of each of them you know what's coming, guess and think: "I've heard that before" or "boring". We spend months or perhaps years waiting for that record that moves our soul and that is an essential part of our life forever. And the disc does not arrive. I confess that when I decided to listen to the Shawn Mendes album that simply bears his name and that was released in 2018, I had my finger ready to change the track as long as ten seconds of each song passed ... but my finger stayed frozen, paralyzed, this time I did not use it !!! From the first track of the album, "In My Blood", I was hooked to it and I listened to it without stopping until the end. Probably "In My Blood" would have been a good name for the album, but when an artist is so sure of what he just produced he does not find the need to put names that attract attention, he does not need it and that's why I think he decided that the album simply bears the name of its author: Shawn Mendes. I must say with extraordinary surprise and frankness that the album moved me, it does not have waste and you can listen to it from beginning to end without feeling that time passes while you travel all the places where it takes you. Amazing, I still can not believe it. In his two previous albums, Shawn Mendes had already shown signs of being a brilliant composer, but I think he had not achieved such a complete work in every way and, had only made it clear that he had great sensitivity but that he was in the process of growing up and mature like every young composer. But in "In My Blood", the Canadian musician, singer and composer has made it clear that the previous successes were not chance and is ready to compete with anyone for the love and preference of the general public. The album takes us through genres such as rock, romantic ballad, pop and, R & B, with a soft and pleasant accent for all kinds of tastes. It is his very particular stamp and it satisfies everyone.
I’m not homosexual, but I will admit that Shawn Mendes is one sexy motherfucker to me. Here’s an old school reference from my Uncle Wiley who likes to stay abreast of the latest and greatest. Bryan Adams. Shawn Mendes is Bryan Adams he says. I said sure Uncle Wiley. Instead of this Canuck doing the Bieber thing, he struck out on his own with a real rock meets R&B voice that really gets the blood going. For my money, I might put more on Shawn Mendes than The Biebs or Charlie Puth, who has a similar eclectic style. But where Mendes loses some points is in his complete lack of balls. Almost every song is about some girl curving him or playing with his emotions. I’m not stupid enough to believe any of it of course, but some of you ladies out there really buy this story that he can’t get a date. He reminds me of a bee that dies after having sex once. I’d much rather him stop the ‘poor me’ routine. Be a man/bee, like the chosen few who bang a soft barked tree and scientists find him ten million years later in the amber.
