It feels like it was forever ago that we first heard “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes. For me, it was an instant hit and continues to be one of my favorite pop songs from the past year. Glad it’s finally topping the charts and getting the much deserved recognition.
Shawn stopped by BBC Radio 1 and did an excellent live version of the song in the iconic Live Lounge. For his obligatory cover, Shawn chose “Here” by Alessia Cara and put an interesting spin on it.
To be frank, Alessia has such a unique and defining singing style and production on the record, it took me a few listens for the cover to grow on me. I think I prefer the original, but appreciate Shawn’s take on it.
Check it out and tweet me your thoughts on Shawn’s cover!
This, on the other hand, is pure genius, and have zero shame about blasting this song in my car and singing along.
