SOTD: Shawn Mendes plays hard to get on ‘If I Can’t Have You’
Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes bounces back to radio with ‘If I Can’t Have You’, his first musical offering of 2019.
The single was written alongside longtime collaborators Scott Harris, Teddy Geiger and Nate Mercereau and produced by Mendes and Geiger.
Mendes recently performed ‘If I Can’t Have You’ on Saturday Night Live, followed up by a rendition of ‘In My Blood’. The latter peaked at #3 on the TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart.
Mendes is undoubtedly one of radio’s most-loved acts. 2017 smash ‘There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back’ currently sits at #54 on the airplay chart where it has remained for 97 consecutive weeks.
He was also joint leader for Most Added To Radio crowns in 2018 with three (‘In My Blood’, ‘Nervous’, ‘Lost In Japan (Remix)’ alongside Zedd).
