"I can't find a picture of Mendes wearing a fedora, but you know what? Some guys wear their fedoras on the inside."

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Mendes first became noticed thanks to his music on social media platform Vine. Not long afterwards, he was signed to his first record deal. Mendes' first hit single was "Life of the Party", which debuted at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the youngest artist to ever debut in the top 25. His first full-length album, Handwritten, was released the next spring. It produced the smash crossover hit "Stitches", which hit #4 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the pop airplay chart. His second album "Illuminate" was released on September 23rd, 2016.
Tropes associated with Shawn Mendes include:
- Break Up Demand: The whole premise of "Treat You Better". Shawn demands a girl to breakup with her current boyfriend who isn't treating her right so Shawn himself can date her instead, for he'll treat her with more respect.
- The Oner: Many of his videos have used this effect, "Something Big" being the most notable exception.
- Shirtless Scene: See here and here.
- Teen Idol: He tries not to be marketed as one, and more of a serious adult singer/songwriter a la Ed Sheeran, but being an good-looking 18-year old, it's impossible for him to avoid the stigma.
