Mercy, Shawn Mendes! Don’t scare us like that!
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.
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.
