Shawn Mendes Gives Us a ‘Better’ Look at New Music
During a commercial break on Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, Shawn Mendes premiered a 10-second video teaser for a new song called “Better.”
Now the 17-year-old wunderkind has shared an extended preview to give a “better” taste of the track with pieces of the intro and first verse. The new 21-second video is what Shazam directed users to if they searched during the first trailer.
It opens with modest guitar picking before growing with Mendes’ own vocals, singing, “I won’t lie to you/ I know he’s just not right for you.” From there, it seems Mendes will present a convincing argument of how much “better” he is than the subject’s current boyfriend.

Shawn Mendes also impressed at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards with an acoustic performance of his hit song “Stitches.” Walking through a stage set up to look like the inside of a house, he started on guitar before transitioning to a piano, with fans delighted by his vocals.
