Shawn Mendes Songs: Here to get the lowdown on Shawn Mendes and his songs?

“I love it when you call me Señorita…”

“I know I can treat you better than he can…”

“And now that I’m without your kisses, I’ll be needing stitches…”

Familiar? 

Yup, I thought so.

Almost every millennial – and boomer, mind you – jam along to Shawn Mendes’ songs. There’s really no arguing that lil’ factoid. 

One of the very popular singers of this generation, Shawn Mendes’s songs resonated with pretty much everyone so there’s really no wonder he’s so high on a pedestal compared to other artists of his generation.

Despite having been born and raised in Canada, he’s gained worldwide fame and has since worked with Island Records.

As Shawn would have it, “Every time I write a song, it feels like the first time I wrote a song. It’s just as hard; it doesn’t get easier, but that’s why I love it: because it’s a challenge every time. I also feel like I’m learning new ways.”

Makes sense, right?

Ever since he was young, he was indulged in music. 

In fact, we owe everything to him for having uploaded that tiny video clip all those moons ago. 

If he hadn’t mustered up the courage, we wouldn’t be singing along to his songs now.

And the good news?

Well, we have this article for you to check out – and enjoy – all of Shawn Mendes’s songs. Well, the popular ones, at least.

Let me fill you in with new songs by Shawn Mendes and together, let’s take a trip down memory lane to some of his old – but definitely gold – songs.

Read on with me, will ya?

1. “In My Blood” (2018)

Released in 2018, In My Blood is arguably his most heartfelt and resonating song to date. 

In the music video, he’s seen in his most vulnerable state – lying down on the ground while unaware of things around.

Shawn’s “most anthemic song,” according to Billboard, the rhythm and the lyrics send out a clear message about how to deal with anxiety.

The most real and raw of all his songs, In My Blood, is among the other titles released in the third self-titled album that shot him up the ladder of success, as cheesy as that sounds.

Put another way…

… the song was nominated for Song of the Year at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.

As if that’s not enough…

… In My Blood won “Single of the Year” at the 2019 Juno Awards.

The chorus is the best part as it’s a stark cry for help from someone who suffers from anxiety and insecurity.

“Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in. Sometimes I feel like giving up but I just can’t. It isn’t in my blood… No medicine is strong enough.”

It’s not every day we get to see our favorite artists open up their lives to us. 

But when they do, their vulnerability only makes us love them more, right?

2. “A Little Too Much” (2015)

Flashback to 2015, just three years before he released In My Blood, he gave his fans the acoustic performance of A Little Too Much.

From a point-of-view of someone from the outside looking in, this thought-provoking acoustic song sees Shawn Mendes performing on stage and singing his heart out – sans audience.

Just so real!

The rhythm of the song complements its lyrics.

Oh, and Shawn’s voice is as raw as it can get! 

With his iconic tenor pitch with just a hint of huskiness.

Catch a glimpse of the music video here.

Oh, you’re done watching? 

How’d you find it? 

Here are the most memorable lines from the song, IMO:

“She would not show that she was afraid but being and feeling alone was too much to face. Though everyone said that she was so strong, what they didn’t know is that she could barely carry on. But she knew that she would be okay so she didn’t let it get in her way.”

I swear, if you just gave this guy a guitar and a few hours, you’d have a song that rings true for everyone.

3. “Something Big” (2014)

Written by Dijon McFarlane, Paul Salva, Americo Garcia, Jorge Medina, Brandon Paak, and Nick Jonas himself, the song “Anywhere” hit the charts in Czech Republic’s Radio Top 100.
Both Mustard and Nick Jonas teased their then-upcoming single via Instagram where they posted a video before the song’s release.
In it, the song’s details were displayed on an airport departure board featuring the artists’ names and the song’s title.
On May 22, 2018, the music video was released to mixed reviews.

4. “Stitches” (2015)

If it isn’t obvious yet, 2014 and 2015 were Shawn’s breakthrough years. 

Shawn continues to prove that he’s so much more than just a pretty face.

He’s the total package!

And which song resonates with almost everyone since its release?

Yes, that’s right! It’s Stitches.

Ever since the song Stitches was released in 2015, Shawn…Mendes…hasn’t…stopped!

If you’re a fan of him looking all handsome and charming, well, you can’t go wrong with this music video. I mean, we have a list of Memes that prove he’s truly a total hottie even if he was beaten up in the video – bruises and all.

Shawn released this song at a time when he didn’t have many connections in the music industry – and its proof enough how fast-paced his rise to fame was.

Of course, the iconic lyrics of the song are:

“You watch me bleed until I can’t breathe. I’m shaking, falling onto my knees. And now that I’m without your kisses, I’ll be needing stitches.”

Okay, it’s 2016 and I swear this guy must have been working his nuts off!

Shawn released the song Treat You Better and the fans went gaga over it for months and months.

The song has been so popular – even to this day – that it earned a well-deserved Radio Disney Music Award for “Song of the Year.”

Part of his album “Illuminate,” the song was so popular it now has a whopping 1.9 Billion views on YouTube!

If you’re living in a fantasy world where Shawn Mendes is your knight in shining armor, then I’m pretty sure the music video will be a very nice treat for you.

“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 cryin’ when you should be with me instead? I know I can treat you better…better than he can.”

Okay, I’m just going to pretend he’s singing to me.

What? 

A girl can dream, right? 

LOL

Okay, let’s not beat around the bush.

Shawn just has this way of making his fans swoon.

If you watch his music video on YouTube, and if you shut your eyes, it almost seems like you’re listening to a Justin Bieber song – because of the same quality of voice they both have – in some ways, at least.

This relaxing and laid-back song is considered by Billboard as “one of the Best Songs by Shawn Mendes.”

Couldn’t agree more!

Owing to that, Life of the Party is also Shawn’s very first song to be played on the radio.

The song is also very relatable in more ways than one.

“We don’t have to be ordinary. Make your best mistakes. ‘Cause we don’t have the time to be sorry. So baby be the life of the party.”

Right back at ya, Shawn!

7. “Don’t Be A Fool” (2016)

One of Shawn’s original songs, Don’t Be A Fool stays true to his balladeer roots and speaks about love in the most real way possible.

Through the song, Mendes gives advice to a lover and encourages her to move on. Apparently, he’s too preoccupied with other things – he no longer has time to be in a relationship.

According to Billboard, “But even despite using the word ‘fool,’ Mendes lets his subject down easy, particularly thanks to the doo-wop-inspired melody that makes the song (and breakup) feel a little less painful.”

Talk about killing me softly.

“Don’t be a fool and wait on me, darlin’. I know that you don’t wanna hear this but I’m always on the move.”

8. “Perfectly Wrong” (2018)

According to Billboard, “There aren’t many guitar-less songs in Mendes’ catalog, but “Perfectly Wrong” shows he doesn’t need his guitar to shine. In fact, the piano-heavy song helps bring out the pain in Mendes’ voice as he copes with the end of a relationship that he knows isn’t going to work in the long run.”

Ouch, brutal!

“You’re perfectly wrong for me and that’s why it’s so hard to leave” is, by far, the best part of the song, which, speaks volumes.

9. “Fallin’ All In You” (2018)

Going back to where his heart is truly rooted, Fallin’ All In You was released by Mendes and speaks of love in the sweetest of ways.

Billboard was right when they described the song as having “a sway-along, guitar-plucked melody.”

The best part about it?

Well, can you guess?

“Every time I see you baby I get lost. If I’m dreaming, baby, please don’t wake me up. Every night I’m with you I fall more in love. Now I’m laying by your side. Everything feels right since you came along…You’re bringing out a different kind of me.”

Your voice, Mr. Mendes – music to my ears!
