Representing the youth, Shawn Mendes and Khalid, join forces on their new single, “Youth.” Today, a lyric video was released for the acoustic guitar-drive song that was recorded in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bombing. The song focuses on youthful hope through times of despair. “Waking up to headlines filled with devastation again, my heart is broken but I keep gong. Pain, but I won’t let it turn into hate. No, I won’t let it change me.”

On the hook, Mendes and Khalid sing, “You can’t take my youth away. This soul of mine will never break. As long as I wake up today. You take my youth away.
