All 14 of Shawn Mendes's Singles Ranked From Good to Better to Best

Shawn Mendes is one of the most popular artists today, and when you listen to his music, it's easy to see why! From the supercatchy "Treat You Better," to the heartfelt ballad "Mercy," all the way to his most recent release with Camila Cabello, "Señorita," Mendes consistently puts out some great songs. Though he's from Canada, Mendes has become an absolute staple in worldwide pop culture.

Ever since his first single release of "Life of the Party" back in 2014, Mendes has been killing the game. You may currently find yourself in my situation and be addicted to the "Lover" remix that he and Taylor Swift recently put out together. Whichever song is your favorite, it's pretty obvious that Mendes has never released a bad single. That being said, let's take a trip down memory lane as I offer my definitive ranking of his singles.

"I Know What You Did Last Summer" by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

This song is super catchy and showcases just how well Mendes and Cabello can work together. Released in 2015, both Mendes and Cabello were still coming into their own when it comes to music (Cabello was still a part of Fifth Harmony at this point). This duet only foreshadows even better music to come from both artists!

"Mercy" by Shawn Mendes

There's something about this song that has always really resonated with me. It's really vulnerable and easy to relate to — the pain of wanting someone who simply doesn't want you back. Even if they aren't trying to be malicious, there's still a lot of pain when it comes to unrequited love, and this song encompasses that feeling perfectly.
