16 year old Shawn Mendes has made a seriously big splash since inking a deal with Island Records last year. Since his major label debut, the young star has released his first album, Handwritten, and landed his first film soundtrack with The Disney Channel.
The latest music video for "Stitches" features Mendes fighting an invisible assailant, a clear metaphor for a broken heart. Mendes is "thrown" around an empty parking garage, becoming more bruised as the video goes on.
