Today* Star - Shawn Mendes

Powered by First County Bank

Shawn Mendes simply can't be stopped.  He's a chronic hit machine and the music industry's new blood.

He's the new "it boy" that everyone's talking about and it's hard not to see why.  He blew up on social media before making it big, paving a new way for young artists to get noticed who don't have connections or rich family members to get them started.  Also, those who may be too shy to compete on a national television show, too.

You don't need connections.  You need to make a statement and form a connection with the person watching your videos on YouTube.  Next thing you know... BAM, you're viral!  And Shawn Mendes shot to fame just doing what he loves... singing!  He was just having fun and, soon enough, producers and record companies came knocking on his door. 

Soon enough, he dominated radio airwaves with "Stitches" and "Treat You Better" in 2016, and he's already issued several major hits for this year with "Mercy" and "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back."  He writes all his songs, too!  He's turning 19 very soon, but it just goes to show he has a long career ahead of him.

He is the youngest artist to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Charts if you needed any proof.  Like, this kid is already going places.  It's crazy to think where he'll be in 2018 and beyond.
