Handwritten won’t be the last hit for Mendes

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is an Canadian singer and songwriter who was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1998. Mendes has won a few awards so far, ranging from Choice Web Star: Music in 2014, to Favorite Breakout Artist in 2016. There is no doubt that he will continue to win a ton more.

Shawn Mendes is a really great singer; in fact his is my favorite male pop singer. In 2014, Mendes released his first debut single “Life Of The Party”, which peaked at number twenty-four on the US Billboard Hot 100. In fact the first song I had heard by Shawn was his first single “Life Of The Party”, after listening to that song I became interested in his music. Both my friends and I like Shawn Mendes. My favorite song by him would have to be his newest hit single “Stitches” or his first single “Life Of The Party”, it’s hard for me to choose.

“We don’t have to be ordinary, make your best mistakes. ‘Cause we don’t have time to be sorry, so baby be the of the party.”~Life Of The Party

Shawn Mendes released his first EP called The Shawn Mendes EP, in 2014. It debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 chart, and sold 48,000 copies within the first week. As of November 2015, the EP has sold 102,000 copies in the United States. In the spring of 2015, Shawn released his first debut studio album Handwritten. Handwritten came in at the number one on the US Billboard 200, and within the first week sold 106,000 copies. Thats a lot of copies. In fact he is the youngest artist since Justin Bieber to have a number one album on the Billboard 200 chart in nearly five years.

Even though all the songs on the Handwritten album are really good, my most favorite songs would still have to be “Stiches” and “Life Of The Party”.

“You watch me bleed until I can’t breathe. Shaking, falling onto my knees, and now that I’m without your kisses I’ll be needing stitches. Tripping over myself, aching begging you to come help. And now that I’m without your kisses I’ll be needing stitches.”~Stitches

If you are interested in purchasing Shawn Mendes’s Handwritten album, it is available in stores, or on iTunes and Amazon. I know for a fact that I really want this album, and hopefully I can purchase it soon.
