Shawn Mendes
Artist Name

Singer-songwriter Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is from Canada. When he uploaded song covers to the video-sharing website Vine in 2013, he started to amass a following.

He attracted the notice of Island Records A&R Ziggy Chareton and artist manager Andrew Gertler the next year, which resulted in his securing a contract with the label. 2014 saw the publication of Mendes' self-titled debut EP, and 2015 saw the release of his first studio album, Handwritten.

Mendes is one of just five musicians to have their debut album at number one before turning 18 thanks to Handwritten, which debuted atop the US Billboard 200. The song "Stitches" peaked at number one in the UK and in the US and Canada's top 10 singles.
