Both his mother Karen and his father Manuel hail from different countries; England for Karen and Portugal for Manuel. Aaliyah is the name of the man’s younger sister. Mendes earned his diploma from Pine Ridge Secondary School in June of 2016, where he engaged in extracurricular activities such as ice hockey, soccer, and the glee club.
In 2012, when Mendes was just 14 years old, he taught himself how to play the guitar by watching tutorial videos on YouTube. He then began uploading his own cover videos to the internet.
After uploading a rendition of Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me” on the social video app Vine in 2013, which quickly garnered millions of views and followers over the course of the subsequent few months, he began to receive widespread media coverage. As a result of the increasing popularity of his six-second renditions of well-known songs, he had amassed the third-highest following of any musician on Vine by the time August 2014 rolled around.
In January of 2014, artist manager Andrew Gertler was the one who introduced him to Island Records. Following his victory in the “Best Cover Song” competition hosted by Ryan Seacrest in April 2014, he made his formal signing with Island Records in May of the same year. Mendes had participated in the MAGCON tour around the United States for a period of two months prior to his signing with a record label. The tour featured a number of other renowned Vine celebrities.

Following the release of his debut extended play on a big label in July 2014, which peaked at number five on the Billboard 200, Mendes released his debut studio album titled “Handwritten” in April of 2015. The song “Handwritten” was awarded the platinum certification as it swiftly ascended to the top spot on the Billboard 200 list and sold 106,000 copies in its first week of release.
The third single taken from the album “Stitches” was very successful. Not only did it become Mendes’ first song to make it into the top ten in the United States, but it also went on to become the number one single in the United Kingdom. As a result of his achievements, Mendes was included on both the “25 Most Influential Teens of 2014” and “The 30 Most Influential Teens of 2015” lists published by Time.

On September 23, 2016, he released his second studio album titled “Illuminate,” which debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 list. The album’s songs “Treat You Better” and “Mercy” both did well in the charts as well, contributing to the album’s overall success.
Mendes kicked up the Illuminate World Tour in April of 2017, the same month that he released the track “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” on the deluxe edition of his album “Illuminate.” After “Stitches” (2015) and “Treat You Better” (2016), this was his third hit, making him the first artist under the age of 20 to have three songs that peaked at number one on the Billboard Adult Pop Songs list.
Mendes became the third-youngest artist in history at the time to have three albums debut at number one with the success of the release of his self-titled album on May 25, 2018. In 2019, he kicked out his global tour under the same name as the album, and he also gave extra performances at a number of music festivals in Europe, North America, and South America, as well as at a concert that was broadcast on television to celebrate the 92nd birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.
The song “Senorita,” which Mendes recorded in 2019 in collaboration with the singer Camila Cabello, was the first time that Mendes had a song at the top of the Hot 100 chart.
