Shawn Mendes Wanted Something 'Dancier' With New Song 'There's Nothing Holding Me Back'

Shawn Mendes Wanted Something 'Dancier' With New Song 'There's Nothing Holding Me Back'

Shawn Mendes‘ latest single, “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back”, doesn’t sound anything like anything else he’s ever put out — and that was the point.

“I wanted to make something that could play in the clubs,” he revealed in a new interview. “I wanted something people could dance to at parties. I realized I never had that [in my catalog].”

Shawn also opened up about the unexpected element of a guitalele in the track.

[It's] like a baby guitar with nylon strings that sounds like a ukelele,” he says of the instrument. “I went over to my buddy and was like, ‘I’m just going to play this [in the empty space after the chorus]‘. It ended up sounding so badass. It sounds like something you’d hear on an old Justin Timberlake record, right?”

You can definitely expect to hear Shawn playing it at all the festivals this summer too.

“I’m doing a couple festivals this summer so I know that’ll be a good one to play live,” he shared.

Shawn is pictured below, performing at his concert in Manchester, England on Friday (April 28).

Halsey's Track List is Out & It Features a Collab With Lauren Jauregui!

YES! Halsey has released the track list for her new album, hopeless fountain kingdom — and one of the songs features a surprise guest — Lauren Jauregui!

Halsey teased earlier today that some fans would wake up to a newspaper “on their doorstep that features some clues and hints about hopeless fountain kingdom.”

“Queen of marketing tbh,” iHeart Radio answered the tweet, and we reiterate their compliment — girl is good!

A few hours later, Halsey tweeted out the complete song list, which was (as promised) hidden in the pages of the newspaper she sent out to lucky fans.

Fans were quick to react to the fact the song “Stranger” features Fifth Harmony‘s Lauren. Fans of both artists have little (okay, no) chill about the collaboration.

Lauren tweeted about it as well!

We cannot WAIT for this collab!! The album will be available for purchase in early June.
