Shawn Mendes breaks the silence in the best way possible-by releasing a new acoustic track. Shawn Mendes is one of those rising stars with a God-given voice and it would be a shame to waste them on non-acoustics. Because they really do stun with their vocal skills.
“Treat You Better” was released on Friday (June 03rd), a perfectly timed release for the weekend. And as you and Shawn Mendes would have expected, the single took off! It’s already number one on several global charts and climbing on Billboard Hot 100 too. “Treat You Better” is expected to from Shawn’s upcoming album, which is yet to be titled.

The music video is perfect as well. It’s just Shawn Mendes sitting in a reading room playing his acoustic guitar and working the magic of his voice.
And you can tell me if I’m off
But I see it on your face
When you say that he’s the one that you want
And you’re spending all your time
In this wrong situation
And anytime you wanted to stop
The best part about “Treat You Better” is that almost all of us can relate to the song. It’s about how your princess-to-be is stuck in another (wrong) relationship.
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 your wasted crime
When you should be with me instead
I know I can treat you better
Better than he can
When you have to watch your crush be with someone else (who you think is wrong for her), all you can think is all the ways you could have treated her better-loved her better. We have all been there.
The lyrics of “Treat You Better” are simple and beautiful. Shawn Mendes and his acoustic guitar does the rest to make this a huge sensation worldwide. We are expecting a top-of-the-list premier of this single on Billboard charts coming Monday.
If “Treat You Better” single is a work of Shawn Mendes’s upcoming second album, we have high hopes for 2016 as well.
