You have just experienced a summer filled with love. Shawn MendesThis is the beginning of a much more serious season.
On Wednesday, Dec. 1, the 23-year-old singer dropped his latest single, “It’ll Be Okay,” and let’s just say we just may not be after hearing this one. This slow ballad is just two weeks following his and Camila CabelloAfter more than two decades together, he and his wife of 24 years announced their separation.
Shawn’s latest single—which fans are already speculating is about the couple’s recent separation—included the lyrics: “Are we gonna make it?/ Is this gonna hurt?” and “I start to imagine a world where we don’t collide/ It’s making me sick but we’ll heal and the sun will rise.”

He sings, as he enters the chorus, “We do not have to stay/I will still love you/ It’ll all be OK.” 
Ahead of the song’s release, Shawn sent his followers into a tailspin when he shared a 12-second snippet of the melody to Instagram on Nov. 30. One fan said, “It’s gonna hurt so badly.” Another fan added “HEARTBREAK ERA.”
