Shawn Mendes kicked off his week long residency at the Late Late Show with James Corden by joining the host in the popular ‘Carpool Karaoke.’ Throughout the ride, Mendes sang an abundance of his hits such as “Mercy,” “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” and “In My Blood,” which was the lead single off of his latest album. The Canadian singer even discussed his Harry Potter obsession and showed off his hockey skills.
The main takeaway from this video is that Shawn Mendes is not just a star, but a superstar. A few years ago, this kid was a star in the making, but not anymore. Mendes is the complete package. He’s good-looking and charming. His voice and guitar abilities are top-notch. Every one of his songs is a head-bopper. It’s hard to look at Mendes and not see a superstar. Mendes draws a lot of comparisons to his idol, John Mayer, but I also see a lot of Harry Styles and Ed Sheeran in him. The craziest part about Mendes is his age. He’s 19 years old (!!!). At 19, Mendes has had three #1 albums and he can’t even drink a beer in the US. If you haven’t already, buy your Shawn Mendes stock now before it’s too late. I can’t even imagine where this kid will be in 5 years. It would not surprise me at all if Mendes passes his fellow Canadian, Justin Bieber, in superstardom. Sky is the limit for Shawn Mendes.
Enjoy my favorite Shawn Mendes song and performance.
