No 'Wonder' I'm Still Obsessed With Shawn's New Album, Even One Week Later

The hype has yet to die down

Shawn Mendes

An upbeat album that makes you feel like you're the main character of a movie? That makes you want to sing it and blast it in the car with all of the windows down? That makes you want to jump and dance around to? Umm, YES PLEASE!

Last Friday, Shawn Mendes delivered everything fans wanted and more in his fourth studio album, "Wonder." I have followed Shawn since the beginning when we were both just youngin teenagers, and these new songs are some of my absolute favorites. Here are just a few that I've had on repeat all day every day the past seven days.

"Always Been You"

I can just PICTURE this song in a sold-out stadium. The stadium goes black...then, POOF! Bright white lights, big confetti canons, electricity running through the walls.

"Teach Me How To Love"

When they gave us a very very small preview of this song in the Shawn Mendes documentary on Netflix, I knew this new "Shawn era" would be much different in every good way possible.

The background singers and instrumentation give it an 80s vibe. For some reason, it reminds me of Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough..." especially the last 20 seconds of the song.

"305"

This is a total SUMMER SONG. I can't wait to listen to run around on a beach with this song in my AirPods. When I listen to this song I picture a rollercoaster, the beach, surfing and little golden retrievers just like Tarzan. Simple, pure happiness in the warm sunshine.

I can see a full-blown music video for this song in the future. With Camila, in Miami, of course.

"Wonder"

When this single was released at the beginning of October, I was instantly hooked. The Pacific Northwest vibes mixed with action and running just roped me in. It's definitely one of my "top songs" of 2020.

Plus, whenever I listen to this song while walking on campus, it makes me walk 10x faster. So, if you're ever in a rush somewhere, I'd recommend blasting this song through your earbuds.

"Look Up At The Stars"

If we're thinking about concert line ups for the *fingers crossed* future "Wonder" tour, this one would be perfect after "Always Been You." This song gives me similar vibes, but calming energy.

"Higher"

Not gonna lie, this is probably my favorite song on the album just because of the high energy. My favorite songs are always the ones you can dance around to, and this one certainly checks off that box. It makes me want to be on a city rooftop in the summertime, just like the first line of the song, "New York in the summertime…"

Thank you Shawn, for making 2020 a whole lot better. Keep the music comin'!!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11192

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
