Shawn Mendes' 2016 video for "Treat You Better" has joined an exclusive new club.

The clip reached 2 billion YouTube views, joining a list of less than 50 music videos to reach the milestone.

Following the song's lyrics, the vignette finds the then-teenage crooner infuriated at his crush's toxic relationship, as we watch Mendes' love interest go through physical and emotional abuse with another guy.

"I know I can treat you better than he can / And any girl like you deserves a gentleman / Tell me why are we wasting time / On all your wasted crying / When you should be with me instead?" he sings in the heartfelt chorus.
