Shawn Mendes ft Khalid – Youth Mp3 Download
If it isn’t Shawn Mendes‘ talent alone that makes him one of today’s top singer-songwriters, his mere 19 years of age make it all the more impressive. He’s determined to maintain his lively spirit even as years pass, and he proclaims so in his latest single, the Khalid collaboration “Youth,” which dropped Thursday (May 3).
It’s safe to say Mendes doesn’t need to worry about getting older just yet. However, his musical maturity continues to grow — in this case, he acknowledges the unavoidable negativity in the world, but refuses to let current events turn his heart bitter.
On “Youth,” he and Khalid alternate between lines of the verses before their silky smooth vocals merge together in the memorable chorus. “You can’t take my youth away/ This soul of mine will never break/ As long as I wake up today/ You can’t take my youth away” they insist over a steady beat and Latin-tinged acoustic guitar riffs — simple enough to easily sing along, but still plenty profound to be marked yet another success from Canada’s teen sweetheart.
“Youth” is the third single from Mendes’ self-titled third studio album, set for release May 25. The singer has discussed the slew of influences that can be heard on LP 3, and probably thanks to Khalid’s contribution, “Youth” might also be Mendes’ most R&B-esque tune to date.
