“It’s changing and developing and growing and it’s really fun," says the teen star of his upcoming material.
Shawn Mendes just scored his first-ever Top 20 hit on the Hot 100 chart, as his latest single “Stitches” moves 32-20 on this week’s chart. The teen singer-songwriter spoke to Billboard about the song on the red MTV Video Music Awards red carpet, saying that the Handwritten single is a good indication of what’s to come on his next full-length.
“I think it’s a very good bridge to how my new music is going to start to sound — a little bit more soulful, and it’s still obviously a good pop song,” says Mendes. “I think it’s the right vibe, and it’s emotional, and that’s what I’m all about when it comes to writing music. I think when you have raw emotion in a song, it makes it great.”
