Shawn Mendes is back along with artist Khalid for a new song titled ‘Youth’! Shawn said he wanted to write a response to the 2017 terrorist attacks in Manchester and London. The lyrics to the track tell a story of strength and resilience and according to Shawn speak to what’s going on in life and how the youth are feeling, "You can't take my youth away/This soul of mine will never break/As long as I wake up today/You can't take my youth away." Shawn Mendes’ new self-titled album ‘Shawn Mendes’ drops May 25th. This will be his 3rd album.
What's your reaction to this song? I think it's another incredible work from Shawn, and Khalid is equally as impressive! This kid is pure talent man! All leading up to May 25th!
