Honestly, who is this person?

If you're alive then you've likely heard chatter about someone by the name of Shawn Mendes. By all accounts this person is a moderately attractive teen child with a music career and a squeaky clean image. 

This moderately attractive teen child has been touted as the next Justin Bieber and is already breaking records with his debut album, Handwritten. Billboard are calling him the youngest person since Justin Bieber to have Billboard number 1 album. 

Besides knowing him as a dead ringer for the guy who let you copy his Chemistry homework in the 10th grade, you'll probably recognise him from Vine as part of the 'people who know Nash Grier' club. 


Other than knowing Nash Grier, Shawn's talents include looking like a nice boy and having a cool debut single.

Even the most jaded person could probably admit that this song is pretty good. Let's call this one Ed Sheeran meets Imagine Dragons, especially when that kick drum rolls around. And of course those 'oohs and ahhhs'

Before that, people found out about Shawn through this apt Justin Bieber vine cover.

He kind of has that Ed Sheeran songwriting vibe going for him. 

But the world could definitely do without a 16-year-old referring to anyone as their "lover". Yuck forever.

So, as it would seem, Shawn Mendes is a 16 year old guitar playing child from Ontario, Canada with a debut album and a nonthreatening outward appearance. Nice.
