Early Life and Career:
Shawn Peter Raul Mendes was born on August 8, 1998, in Pickering, Ontario, Canada, and began his professional career shortly after. In addition to his mother, Karen is from England, and in addition to his father, Manuel is from Portugal. Aaliyah, his younger sister, is his closest confidante. The glee club, ice hockey, and soccer were among the activities that Mendes enjoyed while at Pine Ridge Secondary School, where he graduated in June 2016.
Mendes began posting his cover videos on YouTube in 2012, when he was 14 years old, after learning to play the guitar by studying YouTube tutorial videos.
A cover of Justin Bieber‘s “As Long As You Love Me” that he posted on the social video app Vine garnered millions of views and followers over a few months in 2013, and he began to acquire more recognition. As a result of his six-second versions of popular songs, he achieved popularity on Vine and by August 2014 had the third-largest following among musicians. In January 2014, he signed with Island Records, thanks to the efforts of artist manager Andrew Gertler.
Following his victory in Ryan Seacrest's “Best Cover Song” contest in April 2014, he secured a record deal with Island Records in May of that year. Before his agreement, Mendes had embarked on a two-month tour of the United States with other major Vine celebrities as part of the MAGCON event series, which included other prominent Vine personalities.
Mendes' debut major-label EP, “Handwritten,” was published in July 2014 and peaked at number five on the Billboard 200. This was followed by his debut studio album, “Handwritten,” which was released in April 2015. In its first week, “Handwritten” sold 106,000 copies, earning it platinum certification.
It soon rose to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, where it remained for three weeks. This was especially true for the third song from the album, “Stitches,” which went on to become Mendes' first top ten single in the United States and eventually reached number one in the United Kingdom as well. Following this triumph, Mendes was named one of Time magazine's “25 Most Influential Teens of 2014” and one of Time's “30 Most Influential Teens of 2015.”
As part of the Shawn Mendes World Tour, which launched in early 2016, the singer-songwriter scheduled 38 gigs across North America and Europe, all of which sold out in minutes. His second studio album, “Illuminate,” was released on September 23, 2016, and debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart in the United States for the second time. Aside from that, the album's lead singles “Treat You Better” and “Mercy” both scored admirably well on the charts.
When Mendes began on his Illuminate World Tour in April 2017, he also included the single “There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back” on the deluxe edition of his album “Illuminate,” which was released the following month. After “Stitches” (2015) and “Treat You Better” (2016), this was his third hit, making him the first artist under the age of 20 to achieve three number-one singles on the Billboard Adult Pop Songs chart.
Following the success of his self-titled debut album, which was released on May 25, 2018, Mendes became the third-youngest artist in history to have three number-one albums at the time of its release. During his self-titled global tour, which began in 2019, he also performed at various music festivals around Europe, North America, and South America. He also appeared on the BBC's celebration of the 92nd birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, which was broadcast live around the world.
Mendes' collaboration with singer Camila Cabello, “Senorita,” peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2019, marking the artist's first appearance at the top of the chart. The song is the duo's second collaboration, following their previous effort, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” released in 2015.
Television and Film:
Mendes made his acting debut on The CW's “The 100” third-season premiere on January 21, 2016, and has since been in several films. His numerous television show appearances, including those on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” has continued to build his profile.
As part of YouTube's Artist Spotlight Story Series, Mendes also appeared in a documentary directed by YouTuber Casey Neistat, in which he played the lead role. He also appears in the video, which includes behind-the-scenes footage from one of Mendes' shows as well as an interview with him. It was released on YouTube on September 28, 2018, and can be seen below.
Other ventures and projects:
Mendes made his formal model debut in June 2017, when he walked the runway for Emporio Armani's Spring 2018 show in Milan, Italy, which was his first international appearance. His appointment as the Brand's Fall Winter 2018-2019 watch collection's ambassador was revealed in June of that year. His other brand endorsements include his role as brand ambassador for Calvin Klein's #MyCalvins campaign, Smile Direct Club, Canadian-based food giant Tim Hortons, and Canadian clothing brand Roots Canada, among other things.
Personal Life and Philanthropy:
In July 2019, Mendes began dating a fellow musical partner, Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello. The couple has been together since. He has been candid about his battles with anxiety and has spoken openly about his experiences while seeking treatment for the disorder.
His foundation, the Shawn Mendes Foundation, was unveiled in August of this year, with the mission to “inspire and empower his fans and today's youth to bring about positive change in the world and advocate for topics that are important to them.”
