Sing “Treat you Better” with Shawn Mendes on Smule

 

Today on Smule we introduce our newest partner artist, Shawn Mendes. Singer and songwriter based out of Canada, Shawn started writing his own music at a young age which he then displayed in 6-second videos on Vine. These Vine videos started getting attention, and eventually artist managers Andrew Gertler and Island Records A&R Ziggy Chareton took notice and signed him on.

Not long after his growth on social media in 2013, Shawn released his first full-length album Handwritten, which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2015. “Stitches,” the third single on the album, was his breakthrough hit and peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. His second album, Illuminate, released in 2016 featuring the song “Treat you Better”, which we bring to you today in Sing! – come sing with Shawn on Smule!

And when you sing with Shawn, you can enter to win a brand new LG V20 phone, an LG Home Entertainment System, and a chance to meet Shawn Mendes in person!

Sing “Shut up and Dance” with Walk the Moon on Smule

 

By now, you have probably heard this song – if not danced to this song, sang this song or karoake’d to this song. A catchy song with an awesome melody, it’s tough for anyone not to get it caught in their head. Today on Sing! Karaoke you can sing the song with the band!

Since 2006 when lead singer Nicholas Petricca started the band, Walk the Moon, in Ohio, they had many member changes until they ended up with its current members in 2010. In 2012 they released their second album, Talking is Hard, which included “Shut up and Dance.” Not surprisingly, the song rose quickly and became the band’s biggest hit, peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, while also holding a spot at number 1 on Billboard Hot Rock Songs and Billboard Alternative Songs.
