Your Heart Will Need “Stitches” After This Shawn Mendes Video

The singer-songwriter gets his heart (and face) broken in the clip, premiering exclusively on BuzzFeed Music.

Meet Shawn Mendes, the Canadian teenager who parlayed six-second Vine covers into a full-blown pop career.

Since signing with Island Records last summer, he’s released a chart-topping album, headlined his first shows, and become a favorite of Taylor Swift, who invited him to join her massive 1989 tour as an opening act.

Since signing with Island Records last summer, he’s released a chart-topping album, headlined his first shows, and become a favorite of Taylor Swift, who invited him to join her massive 1989 tour as an opening act.

Earlier this year, he released a series of romantic music videos to promote his debut album, Handwritten — including one for the record’s standout track, “Stitches.”

The clip has racked up over 9 million views since it was published in March, but Shawn felt the song deserved a video of its own, and so the worldwide trending topic #NewStitchesVideo was born.

In the new video, premiering exclusively on BuzzFeed Music, Shawn gets bruised and bloodied by a broken heart.

Once the hits start coming, they don’t stop.

It’s hard to watch him ~bleed until he can’t breathe~.

But ~like a moth drawn to a flame~, he just can’t seem to resist the pain.
