As excited as we were to see Shawn Mendes shirtless in his new music video, and as much as we’d love to talk about it for hours, because ummmm, HELLO.. we’d like to focus on the more important issue and message behind his video.
As if it isn’t obvious by the title of the song, it’s about treating a girl better than the man she’s with. In the video, he used his song to touch on abusive relationships, which is something that has become a very big issue in our culture today. Using his voice and platform to give an outlook into this situation, and prove that you CAN get out of a situation that involves any type of abuse in a relationship, the song speaks about how there are SO many other guys out there in the world that can, and WILL treat you better.
The video is so raw and real, and we hope there’s SO much more to come. Shawn is educating people with this video, and that gives him MAJOR points in our book.
