Shawn Mendes Releases 'Stitches' Video

(Radio.com) If singing doesn't work out, Shawn Mendes could always be a stuntman--or so he proves in his latest video. The Vine breakout singer literally rolls with the punches in the visual clip for "Stitches," a song from his recently released debut album Handwritten.

When Mendes hits the chorus--"I'll be needing stitches," he sings--he's being dragged across a parking lot floor, slapped around and thrown through a wall. What exactly is beating him up? Metaphorical love.

It's another dry humor take on one of his songs, like the sarcastic video for "Life of a Party," where it turns out that the girl he's singing about is anything but.

Mendes' album Handwritten is out now on Island Records. It's the 16-year-old's debut studio album and features other singles in "Life of the Party" (No. 24 on the Billboard Hot 100) and "Something Big (No. 80). Watch the video here.
