(June 25, 2015 – New York, NY) Fresh from his show-stopping performance at this past weekend’s MMVAs (Much Music Video Awards), where he won the Fan Fave Video award for his RIAA gold single “Something Big,” Island Records star Shawn Mendes premiered the video yesterday on Buzzfeed for his new single “Stitches,” which has now bulleted inside the Top 40 Airplay chart at radio. Watch the video HERE! Both hits are from Shawn's debut album HANDWRITTEN, which entered Soundscan at #1 in April, with first week sales of over 119,000 copies, making Shawn the youngest artist in nearly five years to have a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
Shawn is currently on the road as special guest on Taylor Swift’s sold-out The 1989 World Tour, which opened in May and continues through October 2015. Throughout the Taylor Swift tour, Shawn is headlining his own shows in between her dates, including the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, his biggest headlining show yet! ShawnAccessLive, as the Greek Theater date is billed, will not only be his biggest solo show, but will also be filmed for later release with special guests to be announced. (See upcoming tour dates below.) In addition to his upcoming performance of “Stitches” on Live! With Kelly and Michael on July 15th, Shawn is nominated for two Teen Choice Awards this year, for Music Choice Male Artist and Choice Song: Male Artist for “Stitches.”
Shawn, picked by Time Magazine as one of the most influential teens of 2014, was also crowned“The real deal” by Teen Vogue. Shawn transitioned from teen viral online sensation to full-fledged industry best-seller when his videos were discovered online by manager Andrew Gertler & he was introduced and signed to Island Records. He has since performed live on the The Late Show With David Letterman, ABC’s Good Morning America, Live with Kelly & Michael, NBC's Today Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! He has also performed on & was interviewed by Ellen twice, and toured last summer across the U.S. and Canada on Austin Mahone’s Secret Tour. Shawn is one of MTV's 2015 Artists To Watch in addition to being selected to be a part of Vevo’s emerging artists program, LIFT.
