Shawn Mendes on Friday released his new single “Wonder,” a heartfelt ballad, and an accompanying music video. The new music video follows the Canadian singer-songwriter riding a train, venturing into a forest, and singing his heart out on a cliff’s edge in the rain.
He is seen singing, “Right before I close my eyes / The only thing that’s on my mind / Been dreaming that you feel it too / I wonder what it’s like to be loved by you.”
Shawn Mendes’ song comes a day after he teased fans with a photo of himself in the ocean with the word “wonder” repeatedly scrawled in the sky above him.
