Biography of Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes Bio

Shawn Mendes is a Canadian pop singer-songwriter. Mendes established a committed following by uploading a succession of his cover versions to various video-sharing platforms (starting with the now-defunct Vine in 2012). His ability, teen-idol good looks, and pre-existing fan base immediately earned him a record deal. Consequently, in 2014, his debut single, “Life of the Party,” peaked at No. 24 on the Billboard 100, making Mendes, then 15, the youngest artist to have a debut song in the Top 25.

Despite being branded “the next Justin Bieber,” Mendes’s acoustic-driven and catchy tunes resemble his idol Ed Sheeran’s musical approach. Moreover, he swiftly began writing his songs. His devoted fans (primarily tween and adolescent girls) have backed his platinum-selling hits and arena-sized globe tours, both as an opening act for Taylor Swift and as a headliner.

Early Life – Education and Birth Place 

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes was born in Pickering, Ontario on August 8, 1998, to English mother Karen (née Rayment) and Portuguese father Manuel Mendes. His mother works as a real estate agent, while his father is an Algarve-based businessman who distributes bar and restaurant equipment in Toronto. He has a younger sister, Aaliyah.

Manuel Mendes graduated from Pine Ridge Secondary School in June 2016, where he participated in ice hockey and soccer, joined his high school glee club, and worked on his stage presence in acting classes. He also gave an audition for the Disney Channel in Toronto. 

Struggle and Career of Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes Career


Before launching his music career, Mendes worked as a voice actor in animated films. His debut role was in the animated film Underdogs (2013). Mendes made his live-action acting debut in 2016 when he appeared in the third season premiere of The 100 on the CW.

In March 2017, the announcement revealed that Mendes would star in Ivan Reitman’s feature film Summer of Love, a road trip musical. Reitman’s production company had funded the script’s development and was negotiating a distribution arrangement. As of September 2021, the project had not yet entered production. However, on August 20, 2021, Mendes released a single titled “Summer of Love”.

Singing Career

Mendes’ internet fame, particularly on Vine, piqued the interest of American talent manager Andrew Gertler in late 2013. In May 2014, he joined Island Records as a signatory. Mendes released his first single, “Life of the Party,” in June, which landed on the Billboard Top 25. Mendes, who is just shy of 16 years old, is the youngest artist to debut that high on the Billboard charts. He followed this with his first major label EP in July 2014, which reached No. 5 on the Billboard 200.

Handwritten (2015)

On April 14, 2015, Mendes unleashed his first studio album, Handwritten. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and rapidly went platinum in the United States, selling more than one million copies. Mendes is the youngest artist to debut on the Billboard chart since fellow Canadian Justin Bieber did it in 2010. Mendes wrapped out 2015 as the opening act for Taylor Swift’s 1989 North American Tour. He also received a 2015 Juno Award nomination for Breakthrough Artist of the Year. In 2016, Mendes received nominations for Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year for Handwritten, as well as Artist of the Year.

Illuminate (2016)

The lead song “Treat You Better” came before Mendes’ second album, Illuminate, which was launched in September 2016. The single peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the album debuted at number one on both the Canadian Albums List and the Billboard 200. He finished his first solo global tour in 2016 and made his debut on NBC’s Saturday Night Live in December of the same year.
In 2017, Mendes embarked on another world tour in support of Illuminate. The tour sold out nearly quickly. Mendes has played in some of the world’s largest venues, including the O2 in London. By November 2017, Mendes had three No. 1 songs on the Billboard Adult Pop Songs chart before turning 20.

Shawn Mendes (2018)

In April 2018, Mendes’ track “In My Blood,” off his self-titled third album, peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard pop chart. This made him the first and only artist to achieve four No. 1 singles on the Adult Pop Songs chart before turning 20. Mendes’ third album opened at No. 1 on both the Canadian Album Chart and the Billboard 200, making him the third-youngest solo artist (after Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus) to have three No. 1 albums. Mendes set out on another globe tour to promote the record and performed at Queen Elizabeth II’s 92nd birthday celebrations.

Wonder (2020)

In December 2020, Mendes’ fourth album, Wonder, became available and debuted at No. 1 in both the US and Canada, just like his earlier albums. Mendes and his then-lover Camila Cabello joined forces to produce the duet “Señorita,” which clinched the 2020 Juno Award for Single of the Year and earned a nomination for a 2019 Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

Wonder led to Mendes being nominated for five Juno Awards in 2022, including Album of the Year, and Pop Album of the Year. Mendes became the youngest recipient of the International Achievement Award and the winner of the TikTok Fan Choice Juno Awards. Mendes is the third-youngest person to reach 18 billion Spotify plays a few days before the 2022 Juno Awards gala.

Style and Influences

Simon Hatten Stone of the Guardian hailed Mendes as “unfailingly polite, charming, gorgeous: the perfect pop star,” in 2020. According to a 2019 NME piece that he also highlighted, Mendes “had the makings of a Generation Z Bruce Springsteen: he looks good in a sleeveless vest, knows how to steam up a crowd, and is regarded as an all-around good guy who respects rather than objectifies women.” Despite having millions of admirers, Hatten stone pointed out that Mendes has many critics who call his music “bland and formulaic” and that he lacks personality.

One way to characterize Mendes’s sound is as pop, pop-rock, and teen-pop. He has given credit to pop stars like Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars but also mentioned John Mayer as a major inspiration. Shawn frequently credits the rock group Kings of Leon as an inspiration for his work. He has stated that he hopes to have a career similar to Justin Bieber’s and acknowledges the singer as a key early influence on his own.

Mendes Activities (2021)

Mendes had a NASA video chat with the International Space Station crew of Expedition 65 on April 22, 2021. During the televised event, students and kids participated in a Q&A session covering a range of Earth Day-related subjects, including general physics, and the astronauts’ experiences aboard the space station. He and several other well-known people sent an open letter to the US Congress in June 2021 pleading with them to enact the Equality Act. Mendes was among the musicians who expressed their belief that the Act would

“protect… the most marginalized communities”.

Shawn teamed up with Cabello and Bollywood celebrities in May 2021 to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in India at the height of its caseload. Mendes gave $50,000 to Give India, an NGO.

Relationship – Love Life, Marriage or Girlfriend

Shawn Mendes Girlfriend

In July 2019, he started dating singer Camila Cabello, a Cuban-American. Although Mendes maintained that their relationship was “definitely not a publicity stunt,” their relationship caused controversy when people alleged that they were trying to start one for attention. November 2021 saw the couple’s announcement of their breakup. In response to inquiries over his sexual orientation, he declared, “I’m not gay. Secondly, it should be irrelevant whether I was or wasn’t. The music should be the main attraction, not my sexual orientation.” 

Mendes has acknowledged openly in his song “In My Blood,” that he suffers from anxiety. He said, “I had a few conversations with a therapist. I consciously tried to spend more time with the individuals in my life. I discovered that, although I had believed that isolating myself from others would help me combat it, the only way I could do it was by fully allowing others into my life.”
