Shawn Mendes - Unplugged Teaser: Shawn Mendes Performs “There’s Nothing Holdin Me Back”

Move over, Justin Bieber! There's a new Canadian heartthrob on our radar! We are currently on a Shawn Mendes appreciation train, and boy are we falling hard. Would you please have mercy on our heart?

It took only three years for Shawn Mendes to become a chart-topping sensation, even becoming a Vine star along the way. His first two albums even debuted at number 1 on the Billboard charts. And he did all that before turning 18! (He's also got his own MTV Unplugged session – see deets at the end of this article.)

Here are 5 reasons why we're crushing on Shawn Mendes.

1. His songs are totally relatable. Even though Shawn has revealed that not all his songs are based on his own experience, his lyrics are absolutely on point and we can all relate to his songs!

2. He's a total klutz – which makes him totally human. And an adorable human at that. Shawn has missed his cues, fallen on stage and messed up his lyrics – but he's never let that get to him!

Here's a compilation of his on-stage falls, just because:

3. He loves his fans, and takes every chance to thank them. On Twitter, on Instagram, a little wave as he passes by – he definitely knows how to get to our hearts. The randomness of his actions shows how much he really cherishes each and every one of his fans!

Love what i do. Thank you

4. He also shows his love to everyone who has helped him get to where he is right now, be it his parents, his stylist or his manager. The boy is just bursting with love!

Congratulations @jwolosky & kelly on your marriage ! Love you both! ❤️

5. His voice. With such a beautiful, soulful voice and damn good looks to complete the package, how can you not fall for Shawn? There's nothing holdin' you back.
