Shawn Mendes’ new single ‘If I Can’t Have You’ gives me the goosies and his smile melts my heart!

Shawn brought his fine Pickering self to the SNL Studio 8H stage last night and he performed his new hit, If I Can’t Have You and of course, a Shawn classic, In My Blood and let me just say – he KILLED both performances!

As Billboard explains, “He followed that up with a serious tonal shift with “In My Blood,” which had him starting out playing solo at the piano before grabbing his guitar for a dramatic finish that felt like the grand finale for a stadium show. This was a similar (and effective!) approach to Mendes’ last appearance on SNL, when he paired a piano-driven “Mercy” with the upbeat “Treat You Better” for his debut on the show in 2016.”



While on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Shawn opens up about his new single and calls it, “a confident pop record and it’s clearly that for me.”  Shawn also says, “I’m going through this phase right now where I’m testing out all the styles I can possibly be doing.  Pop is what’s in my blood — no pun intended. In the last six months I wrote about 45 songs and they’re all over the place and different vibes. This is the one consistently every time I played for myself and for friends and family was giving people that smile.”

Here are some of Shawn’s hilarious SNL skits.





Okay…I have to go watch this performance now x1000 because it’s amazing – bye! #LOL
