Is there a better way to launch an album campaign than with a topless photo?

American singer and teen heartthrob Shawn Mendes has teased the release of his upcoming album with a shirtless beach snap, and unsurprisingly, fans have gone into meltdown mode.

The mouth-watering photo shows the 19-year-old shirtless, wet, and erm… where were we going with this?

Shawn captioned the photo “album soon come,” as he swings from a tree in paradise. See below.

Shawn’s last studio album – Illuminate – reached the top ten in the UK, Australia, Germany, New Zealand, and topped the charts in the USA, Canada, Ireland and Sweden.

The album spawned three singles, Mercy, Treat You Better and There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back, the latter two of which reached the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart.

While we wait for his highly-anticipated third album, let’s revisit some of his hottest Instagram photos so far…
