Shawn Mendes will turn 20 on August 8, but he just got an early birthday present.
The Canadian star’s current single “In My Blood” has topped Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs chart, which measures radio airplay. Shawn was already the only artist under 20 with three number-ones on that chart; now he’s the only one under 20 with four.
Shawn’s run of number-ones on the chart dates back to 2016 and his breakthrough hit “Stitches.” That was followed by “Treat You Better” that same year. In 2017, he topped the chart with “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.”
The only other artists who had multiple number ones on that chart before they turned 20 are Avril Lavigne and Lorde.
Shawn will spend August and the beginning of September overseas, playing festivals everywhere from Denmark and Hungary to Japan and the U.K.
