Earlier in the week, Shawn Mendes released the music video for his latest single, “Treat You Better.” The treatment tells the story of a girl in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend. Meanwhile, Shawn is trapped in the “alternate reality” of a room, empathizing with the girl’s woes and vowing to be a better man than the one she currently has.
BuzzFeed went behind the scenes of Shawn’s latest visual and showed exactly what went into crafting the dramatic imagery.
Check out what went into making the video below.
