Man Crush Monday: Shawn Mendes

Happy 18th birthday Shawn Mendes, to celebrate you becoming a legal adult, I decided to make you this weeks Man Crush Monday! How exciting, right?

For the record I thought Shawn was like 19 with all of the success that he has had in the past few years. You couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing ‘Stitches’, then of course his song with Camila CabelloIKWYDLS‘, and now his newest release ‘Treat You Better’. Even if you aren’t a fan of Shawn’s voice you have to appreciate his song writing ability.

One thing I actually like about Shawn is that he is really talented. He can play multiple instruments, all he needs to work on is stage presence. I think that comes in time though, so he has some years to work on that.

So happy birthday and I do think that Shawn will be around for a while. Whether it is from his own singing and his own tracks or writing songs for other people, I think Shawn will be around for a while!

Happy Monday and happy birthday!

Listen To JoJo Cover Shawn Mendes’ Song ‘Treat You Better’

I have said it once, I have said it twice, I have said it one hundred times. I am all about JoJo and her comeback that is happening right now. She is out there doing the radio circuit and just reminding us all what some people seem to have forgotten. She can sing. She can’t just sing though, she can SING! You feel me?

In a recent interview with the famous Elvis Duran, JoJo showed off her vocals by singing Shawn Mendes‘ hit song ‘Treat You Better’. Guess what? She slayed it. Like she always does.

Her new album is due in October and I am counting down the days until it is released! Pop music has been put on notice because JoJo is back in a big way.

My favorite cover of hers will always be her cover of ‘Marvin’s Room’, this is a close second though.

Shawn Mendes’ ‘Treat You Better’ Video Takes A Stand Against Domestic Violence

I have to be real, this is some pretty heavy stuff coming from Shawn Mendes, who I always kind of thought was nothing but someone who played it safe. From his image to music it’s all been safe so far, this video is pretty incredible though.

If you don’t want to watch the whole thing I will give you the rundown. His crush is dating a bad guy, Shawn tries to fight the bad guy in order to save the girl he is pining over, but ends up losing.

At the very end of the video there are credits for the National Domestic Violence Hotline along with it’s number which is 1-800-799-7233.

Pretty heavy stuff for a song that could easily be just another bubble gum pop love song. Great to see Shawn making it into something more though.

Ansel Elgort Covers Shawn Mendes’ ‘Treat You Better’

I will be the first to admit it, I am obsessed with Ansel Elgort and it’s probably weird because I am quite a few years older than him. I just think that he is absolutely adorable and extremely talented. He will absolutely be one of the biggest names out there in ten years, I say ten because I like to give people time to grow. Obviously Ansel has been in “The Fault in Our Stars” or “Divergent” series, but I think that he has a lot more to give.

Word on the street is that he is going to be releasing some of his own music soon as well! I genuinely like this cover a lot, slowed down, more emotional, pretty amazing.

His first official single ‘Home Alone’ will be out later this month according to his Twitter too!

Let’s go Ansel, you have an extremely bright future ahead of you!
