New Pop Star Shawn Mendes is the Life of the Party–Debut Album Moved up by 2 Weeks


Shawn Mendes is 16 and about to break BIG time on the pop charts. Bigger than Bieber. Mendes’ debut album has just been moved up to April 14th from the 28th because teen girls are going crazy. Last night the video for his hit “Life of the Party” debuted on Vevo. The kid is young, but I’ve seen him live. Let me tell you, if he doesn’t lose his mind (and other things, over and over) he’s got the potential to be what Bieber is not in the music business: a force. And a credit to Canada. Get ready.
