Shawn Mendes — The Next Justin Bieber?

Meet the latest 'it' thing, as far as the music buzz goes

He's the latest 'it' thing, as far as the music buzz goes.

He's all over YouTube, all over the radio, and everyone seems to be talking about him. Shawn Mendes.

And to think, this Canadian 15-year-old got his start by posting snippets of his music on Vine…yes, 6 seconds is all it took to grab the attention of a legion of fans. He just released his self-titled debut album, and it debuted at number 24 on the Billboard's Hot 100 chart. And if that's not impressive enough for you, he managed to reach number 1 on iTunes in just 37 minutes.

And there's talk that he could be the next Justin Bieber.

Let's hope he turns less bad ass than the Biebs.
