Shawn Mendes took fans to a wonderland with his latest single, “Wonder.”
“Wonder” may just be his most vulnerable and honest song yet. With Mendes’ soulful voice and the rock beat, “Wonder” sounds like an anthem, but actually has some really deep lyrics.
The chorus goes, “I wonder what it’s like to be loved by you.” During a virtual live chat a fan asked if there will be any love songs about his girlfriend, Camila Cabello, and he’s told them there will be a lot, so maybe that lyric was about her.
One of his most relatable and vulnerable lyrics in the song, and Shawn’s favorite is, “I wonder, when I cry into my hands, I’m conditioned to feel like it makes me less of a man.”
When the video starts, Mendes is on a train, which kind of looks like The Hogwarts Express. It then cuts to another scene where he is in a forest of sorts which looks like the Hunger Games, so maybe he wonders what another world would be like- a fantasy world.
The song is like nothing we’ve really heard from the singer before. He has definitely matured a lot as an artist during quarantine and it is so exciting to see him grow and be very honest with his fans. Mendes has definitely saved 2020 with his return to music – what a way to end the year!
We are going to go watch the video again and again and cry into our hands when we listen to it every time.
“Wonder” the album will be released on December 4th. You can pre-order it now, along with other merch. “Wonder” the song is now available to stream on all platforms.
