VIDEO PREMIERE: SHAWN MENDES | I'LL BE OKAY
Grammy-winner released the music video to his latest single, "It'll Be Okay," nearly two months after his split from Camila Cabello. The music video, directed by Jay Martin, follows Mendes as he walks down the wintery streets of his hometown Toronto, Canada. As Mendes makes his way around, he passionately sings along to the tune, struggling with the pain of the past. The 23-year-old singer released the emotional ballad in December, and in the lyrics, Mendes details the end of a turbulent relationship. The video consists entirely of Mendes slow-walking his way through his hometown of Toronto at night amid a snowy night crooning the lyrics with no one other people around to hear his laments. “Oh, if the future we’ve dreamed of is fading to black/ I will love you either way,” he sings as the song’s piano coda wells up, and he slows to a crawl in a dimly lit alleyway. The song marks Mendes’ first solo music release since his fourth studio album "Wonder," which came out in Dec 2020 and topped the Billboard 200. He’ll be taking "Wonder" all around the world during his 2022 tour, which kicks off its European leg in spring before heading Stateside next summer with openers Dermot Kennedy and Tate McRae.
