Shawn Mendes has been in London for the past week or so and made an appearance on Capital FM yesterday. Whilst on the show, Mendes confirmed that he and One Direction’s Niall Horan have been in touch for a long while now and have even talked about the idea of writing music together.
In the interview, hosted by Capital FM’s Roman Kemp, Shawn made it pretty clear that there was something in the pipeline between himself and Niall…
“He’s got a great vibe happening with this acoustic thing so I really want to get involved with it, if he is down… which he is, I think.”
