Canadian teen sensation Shawn Mendes just released the video to the upbeat track “Treat You Better”, the latest single off of his upcoming album “Illuminate” dropping this fall.
The song is about fighting for the love of a woman who is already with another man; a man who disrespects her and is seen in the video being mentally and physically abused, while Mendes sings “I know I can treat you better than he can/ And any girl like you deserves a gentleman/ Tell me why are we wasting time/ On all on your wasted crime/ When you should be with me instead/ I know I can treat you better/ Better than he can.”
Last night, the singer took to the stage as he performed the single on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon with a little help from The Roots. Shawn had previously posted an acoustic version of the song and while watching both performances, he’s bound to melt a few hearts. This Friday, the singer will be kicking off the North American leg of his tour and will be making a stop in Toronto on August 21st.
