Shawn Mendes Makes Billboard History

Posted on November 09, 2017

At just 19-years-old.

Shawn Mendes might only be 19-years old, but he is consistently breaking musical records. He just achieved another major accomplishment by nabbing himself THREE number one songs on the Adult Contemporary charts before turning the age of 20.

Since the Billboard chart launched back in 1961, there’s been no other artist under the age of 20 that has accomplished what Shawn Mendes just has. Unreal.

Fittingly, it was August 8th on his 19th birthday when “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” rose to the No. 1 position in the charts. Along with his other hits, “Stitches” and “Treat You Better”, TNHMB allowed Shawn to break this record. 

With two studio albums down, and an MTV Unplugged album that’s just been released, 19-year old Shawn continues to pull out all the stops. With his telling lyrics, and down-to-earth personality, we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Shawn.
