People are not only loving how Shawn Mendes looks in his new video, but also how his Toronto backdrop looks.
The new music video for It’ll Be Okay was released today, a moving ballad that many are interpreting as Mendes’ recent breakup with Camila Cabello.
The pop star was recently spotted filming the video in and around Berczy Park in Toronto, driving fans wild with anticipation.
Now the video is out and the reactions are pouring in. Mendes walks the streets of Toronto in the video, snow covering him.

This isn’t the first time Shawn Mendes has shot a music video in Toronto: George Street Diner also served as the setting for one of his music videos.
