! Don't scare us like that! Shawn Mendes
On Wednesday, the Canadian crooner dropped the music video for his new single
Mercy, and it's suuuuuuuuuper dramatic. The 18-year-old's songs may all sound pretty much the same, but he's certainly switching things up in this visual.
Video: Watch Shawn Perform A Stitches Parody!
While the hitmaker is continuing his pattern of
intense videos, this one actually features him drowning in a car.
And in-between shots of the songsmith being submerged underwater while trapped in a two-ton motor vehicle, we also get glimpses of him hanging out in a studio with a bunch of instruments.
Things really reach a boiling point in the
Jay Martin-directed clip when the artist tries to smash his way out of the car, because that's when Studio Shawn starts smashing instruments!
Sooooo… does he escape?! Ch-ch-check out the music video (above) to find out!
And, Shawn's new album
Illuminate drops on Friday, so there's that, too.
