He will have an impressive worldwide tour with 88 upcoming live shows in 19 different countries. Still, a quick reminder is that tickets for Shawn Mendes sell out fast, so don’t waste a lot of time.
Nevertheless, let’s see the top five tracks you should check out before you buy your passage.
Lost in Japan
This track was released back in 2018 by Island Records, and it’s the second single from his self-titled studio album. It sold more than one million certified units in the USA, but it was also a success in many other countries worldwide, including the UK, where it sold over 400,000 units.
Lost in Japan is pop but also an R&B and funk song that managed to peak at the top of various music charts, reaching number fifteen on Billboard’s US Mainstream Top 40. You might say that this wasn’t a huge success chart-wise, but it didn’t matter since the track became highly popular as time went by, and it received many positive reviews.
In the music industry, sometimes even the best musicians don’t know whether a song from an album will be a hit. And even though Imagination wasn’t part of the initial album release of Handwritten, it came out as a bonus track on the deluxe edition and conquered the hearts of fans worldwide. Probably no one expected something like this to happen, but that is what makes the music business so exciting.
And that wasn’t all since this track already has over 94 million views on YouTube, which for a track that wasn’t released as one of the first singles on the album is for sure an excellent success.
Probably Shawn Mendes’s best song, Senorita feat. Camila Cabello is one that you have listened to on the radio even if you never heard of Mendes. One of the main reasons it’s so popular worldwide is that it’s a Latin pop hit that is perfect for hitting the dance floor.
As of October 2021, this track became the 9th most streamed song on Spotify, and it has over 1.3 billion views on YouTube. It reached number one on US Hot 100, and it’s certified multi-platinum in France, Poland, Mexico, etc. Furthermore, music awards were also friendly to this track since it won two MTV Video Music Awards, a People’s Choice Award, among others, and it was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.
There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back
Another track that will forever stay as one of the best Shawn Mendes songs is his single There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back, released in April 2017.
A fantastic song for dancing with your friends that also has one of the best music videos, this track reached the top ten both in the USA and the UK. It was number one on US Adult Contemporary, US Adult Top 40, and US Mainstream Top 40. Therefore, it’s not a surprise that it has over one billion views on YouTube. Also, There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back managed to stay at number four on the year-end chart of US Mainstream Top 40.
A Shawn Mendes – Justin Bieber collaboration was what everyone waited for, and luckily for the fans, it did happen, which was also a fantastic moment in Mendes’s music career since he started by singing Justin Bieber cover songs.
Monster was featured on Shawn’s fourth album by the name of Wonder, and it was released as the second single. You probably already guessed that it was an instant success worldwide, managing to sell thousands of units all over the globe while having over 172 million views on YouTube. As for music charts, it peaked at number one in Denmark and Canada, reaching number eight on Billboard Hot 100 and number nine on UK Singles.
Of course, everyone expected Monster to be a hit since when two music superstars of such caliber as Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber make a song, it’s more than sure that it will be popular worldwide.
So, here you have the top five Mendes songs you should most certainly check out as soon as possible before you buy Shawn Mendes concert tickets. But the good thing is that even if you don’t and you are just a friend to a friend not to go alone, you will still have a lot of fun and dance all night long since his tracks are created for audiences to have a lot of fun!
