Shawn Mendes showed off his rippling six pack in a trio of shirtless photo shoots last year, starting with a high-fashion spread in L’Uomo Vogue. (The others appear in Flaunt and Hero). A series of unused pics found their way online today (April 25) and they are sure to make the 18-year-old’s devoted fanbase all warm and fuzzy inside. There are a couple of dapper black-and-white snaps of the heartthrob in a suit and a batch of pictures that show off his abs. You can check out the original photo shoot here.

Apart from looking good without a shirt, Shawn has just released a repackage of his chart-topping Illuminate LP. It features a new single called “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” which dutifully reached number one on iTunes. Time will tell if the catchy track, which finds the Canadian in a sexy mood, can follow “Treat You Better” and “Mercy” into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. Given his track record, it’s highly likely. Listen to Shawn’s new track below.
