Profile Bio Text
Shawn Peter Raul Mendes (born August 8, 1998) is a Canadian singer and songwriter. He gained a following in 2013, posting song covers on the video-sharing application Vine. The following year, he caught the attention of artist manager Andrew Gertler and Island Records A&R Ziggy Chareton, which led to him signing a deal with the record label. He has since released three studio albums, headlined three world tours, and received several nominations and awards.
Mendes released his self-titled debut EP (2014) and his debut studio album Handwritten (2015), whose single "Stitches" reached number one in the United Kingdom and the top 10 in the United States and Canada. He then released his second studio album Illuminate (2016), whose singles "Treat You Better" and "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" reached the top 10 in several countries. His self-titled third studio album (2018) was supported by the lead single "In My Blood". All three albums debuted atop the US Billboard 200, with the first one making Mendes one of five artists to ever debut at number one before the age of 18, and the third one making him the third-youngest artist to earn three number one albums. Mendes is also the first artist to land three number one singles on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart (2017) and four number one singles on the Adult Pop Songs chart (2018) before the age of 20.
Mendes has headlined three concert tours: ShawnsFirstHeadlines, Shawn Mendes World Tour and Illuminate World Tour. He is scheduled to headline another world tour in 2019 to support his third studio album. Among his accolades, Mendes has won 13 SOCAN awards, three BMI Awards, three Juno Awards, eight MTV Europe Music Award, eight iHeartRadio MMVAs, and two American Music Awards. In 2018, Time named Mendes one of the 100 most influential people in the world on their annual list.
Mendes has been open about his struggles with anxiety disorder, which he disclosed publicly through "In My Blood", a track from his third studio album. He declared that he had been undergoing therapy in order to help him deal with the mental health condition, stating:
I spoke to a therapist a couple of times [...] Therapy is what works for you. Therapy is listening to music and running on the treadmill, therapy is going to dinner with your friends—it's something that distracts you, that helps you heal and so it just depends on what you think therapy is. I made a conscious effort to be more connected to the people in my life. I found I was closing myself off from everybody, thinking that would help me battle it then realizing the only way I was going to battle it was completely opening up and letting people in.
Mendes revealed before Met Gala 2018 that he come from a religious family. Mendes also said that religion "is going to have a massive impact on people’s fashion. It always has been and always will be."
