Artist of the Week: Shawn Mendes and Songwriting

Shan Mendes is our artist of the week

Canadian singer-songwriter, Shawn Mendes, took over the music world the minute he stepped foot in it. He has the ability to deliver smash hit singles like ‘Treat You Better’ and ‘Stitches’ and offer more subtle, unassuming tracks like ‘Air’ and ‘Ruin’. Side note: Mendes is only 21 years old.

One day, Shawn Mendes decided to pick up the guitar and well, we’re just glad he stuck with it. In his years in the industry, he has worked hard to be recognised as a capable songwriter. All that effort and all that talent makes him the perfect candidate for our Artist of the Week badge.

And, to celebrate his time in the Artist of the Week spotlight, we’re taking a look at some of his best moments as a songwriter. Behind those dreamy eyes and ‘Senorita’ like pop hits, his writing skill may escape you. But, this is sure to remind you. So, dive right in.
