When Shawn Mendes eventually gets back on the road and in front of crowds, one can bet that his explosive new single “Wonder” will make for a massive moment onstage.

On the latest Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), the team discusses why the new track (which is paired with a video filled with epic elements -- from monster-size trees to huge crashing waves) will be a major cathartic moment for fans in concert. That is, whenever concerts happen again.

Also on the show, Pop Shoppers Katie and Keith chat about why Mariah Carey’s new archival compilation album “The Rarities” is a gift to fans, and review big chart news from Travis Scott, Machine Gun Kelly and Fleetwood Mac.

In addition, singer-songwriter Julia Michaels catches up with the Pop Shop to talk about how an upside-down kiss with JP Saxe led to her new single “Lie Like This” and how her upcoming debut full-length album is about “finding love and being in love.”
