Shawn Mendes has teamed up with YouTube Music to share a part of his emotional journey to stardom in the latest YouTube Artist Spotlight Story, out today (Sept. 28).
The short film focuses on the 20-year-old musician's life leading up to the release of his self-titled third studio album, Shawn Mendes, in May of this year.
"It was just about doing it for fun and posting videos,” Mendes recalls. “I wasn't dreaming about stadiums, or Grammys. I was dreaming of my friends being like, 'That's very cool. I love that. You sounded great.' I just wanted to be that guy who sang and played guitar on YouTube.”
