Shawn Mendes Finds (International) Love In “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” Video
Shawn Mendes embarks on an international adventure with a love interest in the video for “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.” Shot while on the road for his European tour, the Jay Martin-directed visual finds the pop star and his girlfriend (played by Ellie Bamber) exploring big cities and gorgeous pastoral scenes across Paris, Amsterdam, and the UK. Through it all Bamber is constantly by his side, cheering him on just offstage or joining him in wanderlust.
“I really wanted to make a video for this song that represents the spirit of adventure. It felt like there was no better place for that than to shoot throughout different beautiful cities and landscapes in Europe,” Shawn states in the press release. “The song is about following someone that you love to the world’s end, and making decisions you wouldn’t ever have thought you would, because of someone you’re just that enamored with. We wanted to put a story together that shows this relationship between a guy and a girl and their travels together, in the purest way possible.”
Things are looking up for the track as Shawn stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week to perform the infectious single. The North American leg of his Illuminate Tour kicks off in a couple of weeks, but it’s safe to assume that he’ll fit in a few more performances before then. “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” has already hit top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 and should climb a lot further. Watch up top.
