Shawn Mendes takes his red MG roadster for a spin along the coastal roads of Mallorca, Spain, in the video for his latest single, 'Summer Of Love'. In the film for the Tainy and Neon 16 produced track Mendes is not only in a reminiscing kind of mood he's also into checking out some classic modes of transport as he appreciates the beauty of the Balearic Islands.
As well as taking to the wheel of his open top MG, Mendes also cruises around in a much sought after, and very well kept, hot-hatch white Golf GTI cabriolet in between taking dips in the Med, sailing his yacht and enjoying his speed boat. It's all very, very last year, and specifically, Harry Styles 'Golden' video from last year. A different car, and a slightly different setting maybe but its ostensibly the same!
Taking to Instagram on the day that the video premiered Mendes wrote, "I hope this song makes people feel free, free from the weight of life, even if just for a moment." The anthemic, Latin flavoured, track is sure to be a massive summer scented hit as Mendes sings about the 'Summer Of Love' where "It felt like we were 18" and there was "Meditation and tequila" where he was "Calling you my señorita".
The señorita in question, his long term girlfriend Camila Cabello, said recently, "I love this video and this song so much" as she endorsed and praised her partners work.
Mendes wrote the song after taking a vacation with Cabello in Miami and has said that, "Time was kind of stopped and it really just felt like we were kids again, you know? And we were able to just find ourselves and it was a beautiful kind of time. And that's what I wrote the song about."
Spoiler Alert - If you haven't been on holiday recently, for obvious reasons, and you may not be going on one any time soon, 'Summer Of Love' may make you just the slightest bit jealous! Just saying.
Returning with their first new song in five years, Placebo have just dropped ‘Beautiful James’ as the first taster of their forthcoming album.
