“He believes he’s not at his best right now. regarding creativity... and wants to take some time to regain passion for music and performing,” they added.

On Reddit, fans cited Mendes' unsuccessful latest album, Wonder, and his break from touring over mental health issues earlier this year, as a reason for retirement.

“me thinks it’s shawn. his last album was 3 years ago and has only put 1 (?) song out since. he himself as a person has been super lowkey [sic],” another insisted.
