Shawn Mendes has just dropped his new video for “Stitches” through an exclusive premiere on Buzzfeed. (The song, for the record, is probably one of the best on his album so this is a good choice)
The video is pretty imaginative: Shawn is beaten to a pulp in a parking lot by an invisible force and gets pretty bruised. In the very last scene (spoiler!) Shawn washes off the blood in a bathroom sink only to find all of his bruises are magically gone. In other words, all of this is in his head. Buzzfeed says he is bruised by a “broken heart.” It’s a cool video–and one that might win over one or two male fans, which he’ll need when he starts to transition to more mature music in a few years.
“Stitches” comes after a week-long promo spree on Twitter and Instagram and I feel like it’s going to be met very positively from fans.
You can watch the video here and let me know in the comments what you think!
