Shawn Mendes and Khalid have just dropped the video for “Youth,” their empowering anthem from Mendes’ most recent self-titled album.
The clip was released to coincide with the United States’ midterm elections, encouraging the youth around the country (and the world) to recognize their voice and their power.
Beginning with footage from the March for Our Lives rallies held around the country earlier this year, the clip highlights various young people and their talents—proving just how incredible the youngest voices can be. Mendes and Khalid come along for the ride, too, their lyrics becoming all the more powerful alongside the visual.
Both artists posted the clip on social media with the caption “Our youth is our strength, our vote is our voice.” Even if you’re not in their part of the world, this clip is inspiring nevertheless.
