Remember back in 2013 when people were posting video snippets on Vine that briefly made them famous? Vine may no longer be a thing, but at least one hero of Vine went on to become an actual pop star. Canadian folk-pop singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes used his online exposure to land a major label record deal that soon resulted in “Stitches,” a top ten hit in the U.S., England, and Canada that was only the first of many chart visits. The 20 year-old’s self-titled third album from last year found him working with top shelf talents like Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, and Khalid. It predictably topped the charts in Canada, but surprised many by becoming his third number one album in America as well. That makes him the third youngest artist to hit number one with three albums, alongside far more famous acts like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.
