5 Achievements From the Young Star, Shawn Mendes
Grammy Nomination & Performance
First up on the list of accomplishments from the young and talented Shawn Mendes is his first Grammy performance and nomination. The Canadian singer was nominated for two awards for the 2019 Grammys. The first nomination was his song “In My Blood” for song of the year. Then, his self-titled album Shawn Mendes was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album. While neither one went on to win an award, it is still quite the accomplishment to have two Grammy nominations at only 20 years of age!
Furthermore, Shawn was not just nominated for two separate awards, but he also performed at the Grammys alongside Miley Cyrus. The two sang Shawn‘s hit single “In My Blood” and gave an emotional yet mind-blowing performance.

The 2nd Most Listened to Artist on Spotify
Secondly, on July 15th, 2019 Shawn Mendes surpassed J Balvin on the list of most listened to artists on Spotify. Landing second on the list, with 57.93 million listeners, he trails only behind Ed Sheeran. It’s safe to assume that Shawn’s latest single, gave him the boost in listeners. In fact, his duet partner for “Señorita“, Camila Cabello, follows close on the list at number three with 57.85 millions listeners. The single has also surpassed 300 million streams on Spotify, making it Shawn‘s eighth song to do so!

Furthermore, Shawn even held the record before that with 3 number one songs!
Shawn Mendes & Calvin Klein Campaign
Of course, a fan favorite, another one of Shawn‘s successes would be his partnership with Calvin Klein.

Singers, Demi Lovato and John Mayer, were two well-known names amongst the many who showed their support for the campaign.
Partnership With Flow Alkaline Spring Water
