 Shawn Mendes inspired by Taylor Swift as he continues his ‘Illuminate’ World Tour

Shawn Mendes , the ‘Treat you better’ singer is back with his latest album, Illuminate due to be released in September and is currently on a world tour to promote it. Following up his 2015 debut album and hit single “Stitches,” Mendes has firmly planted himself in pop rock and has gone on to release the much awaited third single ‘Three Empty Words’ from the upcoming album, Illuminate. Shawn Mendes, who captured hearts across the globe with his heartfelt video ‘Treat You Better’, about domestic violence is now keen to spread a more positive message with his upcoming tour.

Shawn believes he has grown a lot in terms of his craft with his next studio album and compared to his debut, “Handwritten,” Mendes says this new album will take things up a notch —from the lyrics and vocals to the instrumentation and melodies”.

A large part of Shawn Mendes inspiration for his upcoming tour has come from Taylor Swift, on which he says, “The major thing I learned, aside from just the singing and production and the performance, offstage she was just so sweet and works so hard,” Mendes told The Huffington Post. “She was just doing interviews and meet and greets. It seemed like she never stopped … It was cool to see that somebody at that level of fame and success was still working so hard to be there. It showed me that there’s no amount of success that allows you not to work hard, which is a really cool thing to learn at a young age.”

Shawn Mendes not only plans to follow footsteps of Taylor Swift and work hard during his current tour but he is also dedicated to helping “spread joy” as part of his partnership with the Paper Mate InkJoy initiative, which encourages fans to share notes with others to help brighten their days.
