As far as this year goes when it comes to pop, we've embraced our curves with Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass," we looked perfect in our American Apparel underwear while listening to 5 Seconds of Summer's "She Looks So Perfect" and we contemplated love lost with Sam Smith's "Stay With Me." 2014 was also massive for Vine star-turned-pop-celebrity Shawn Mendes, whose sweet single "Life of the Party" gave us the confidence to approach the object of our affection. Not just a talented teen heartthrob, Mendes is also a massive pop music fan and he's curated a Spotify playlist just for you!

You'll find some of this summer's biggest songs on this bad boy including up-and-comers Magic! with "Rude," Coldplay's EDM banger (featuring Avicii!) "A Sky Full Of Stars," and Vance Joy's "Mess Is Mine." The tracklist also boasts Taylor Swift's "Red," Ed Sheeran's "Don't," Nick Jonas"Jealous," Imagine Dragons"Radioactive" and more! Need a party playlist? Shawn has you covered! He even has a message for you: "Here's some of what I'm listening to right now! Some of these songs inspire me to be a great guitar player, and some just make me feel good." Right on!

The young dreamboat has recently launched the "Something Big is Happening" campaign, where the pop singer will reveal, well, something big November 10. To get involved, fans can tweet #SomethingBigIsHappening to unveil the background image on his website. Get pumped and listen to this exclusive playlist below!
