From his smash hit “Life of The Party” Shawn has created a masterpiece out of Handwritten. His music is real, relatable and truly touches our heart.

Not to mention with some of his new songs on his upcoming album, Illuminate, being released it showcases the talent this man has!
15. More Than Just A Singer
Yes, we know that Shawn can sing and write but we need to take the time to appreciate his skills with the guitar. Whenever his fingertips touch those strings and produce beautiful melodies, we can never get enough. Shawn, his voice, and guitar will always be one of our favourite things to hear.

13. Laughter makes others laugh!
You think we would stop with just a smile, you are wrong. Similar to Shawn making us smile, he has the same effect with his laugh. Sometimes if he’s laughing super hard, he will cover his face and it is just the cutest thing ever. What more can we ask from this boy?
13. Family Guy
Can we just agree on the fact that Shawn loves and appreciates his background so much he got a tattoo that outlines the CN tower and the woods? Not only that Shawn also explained that, “The soundwave here that looks like buildings is actually an audio of my parents saying I love you.” via Perez Hilton.
12. His Love For The Fans
The fans are always there to support him no matter what and Shawn also tries his best to show gratitude. For example, not many people do this for the fans but Shawn makes sure he tweets his ‘good mornings’ and ‘goodnights’ and casually replies back to the fans daily. Some people may not think of that as a huge deal but by being noticed by the ones you love is special and just something you can never unexperience.
11. Snapchat For The Win?
We love any second we can get of Shawn and with him sharing his everyday basis with us through Snapchat, it lets us see deeper into his life. If you haven’t added him yet, you need to right now! (shawnmendes1)

8. Pick-up Line With Mendes
This can’t get any cuter. Shawn is ready to be your gentlemen and tells you all the good things you want to hear. Everyone must remember, although Shawn is asking if it hurts when we fell from heaven, you can easily ask that question back to him. Now that’s what we call a win-win situation!
7) Shawn + Tomatoes = Shawmatoes
Yes, we just made Shawmatoes a thing. All in all, everyone loves Shawn just as much as they love food. Shawn loves food, so what more is there to say?
Clearly seen in the music video of “Treat You Better”, Shawn raises awareness on the topic of domestic violence and relationships. It’s a great reminder for everyone to understand that whenever we’re not feeling comfortable or safe in any situation, there will always be someone to help out because we’re never alone. With a kind heart like this, who wouldn’t love him?
