On his Instagram page, Shawn stated, ", the singer opened up about teasing he experienced after posting one of his earlier videos to YouTube. At the time, he was in 9th grade and a group of older bullies at school had gotten word, teasing him about it the next day.

"[They were] yelling out 'sing for me Shawn sing for me!' in a way that made me feel absolutely horrible… made me feel like a joke, like what I was doing was just stupid and wrong," Mendes recalled.

"It's not joke to me," he said. "To make someone feel bad about doing what they love… every single person deserves to do what makes them feel alive."

"I'm writing this not only to the 15-year-old kid who's scared to follow their heart because of what people might say, but also to the 50 year old who may be doing the exact same thing," Mendes explained.
