There’s nothing holding him back.
Shawn Mendes stripped down to his board shorts and flexed his arm muscles while hitting the beach in Miami on Friday.
The “Mercy” singer, 23, was seen going for a dip after canceling the rest of his tour late last month to prioritize his mental health.
The Canadian crooner slicked his wet hair back off his face as he put his abs on display in maroon shorts.
He accessorized the look with a gold necklace and black bracelet, before changing into a pair of blue shorts and chatting to pals on the beach.
Later that night, Mendes headed to LIV Miami where he was spotted in the DJ booth with The Weeknd, record producer Kaytranada and restauranteur David Grutman.
We’re told Mendes was smiling and singing along throughout the night, while rocking a plain white tank top and his hair styled in his signature curls.
The South Florida outing comes just over a week after Mendes revealed he needed to continue working on his mental health, therefore canceling his “Wonder: The World Tour.”
“As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll that being back on the road would take on me,” the “Treat You Better” singer said in a social media statement.
“I started this tour excited to finally get back to playing live after a long break due to the pandemic, but the reality is I was not at all ready for how difficult touring would be after this time away.”
Mendes noted that he spoke with his team and an “incredible group of health professionals,” who came to the conclusion that it has “become more clear” he needs to take the time he has “never taken personally” to “ground” himself and “come back stronger.”
“…I promise I will be back as soon as I’ve taken the right time to heal,” he concluded his statement. “I love you all and thank you all so much for supporting me and sticking by me on this journey.”
Mendes initially told fans he was postponing his tour in early July. The tour kicked off in Portland in June and was scheduled to run through August 2023.
