Shawn Mendes Reveals The True Story Behind 'There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back'

Shawn Mendes‘ latest single, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” should be on everyones go-to playlists.

However, if you thought you knew the story behind the song — thinking that this was based on a girl surrounding his life — it’s not. Not at all.

In a recent video interview, Shawn explained that the song isn’t about a real life girl at all — it’s about a character on screen!

“I was reading a movie script that I was possibly going to be in and the girl who ‘my character’ kind of falls in love with, I actually really loved, like I really liked the character,” he admits.

Shawn adds, “I wrote the song about her [the character]. So it’s not a real girl, that one isn’t a real girl.”

Ellie Bamber, who stars in Shawn‘s music video for the song, is basically the movie character.
