MAJOR best friend goals alert. Last weekend, Shawn Mendes took the stage at his best friend Matt’s wedding reception to play a new and unreleased love ballad for the newlyweds’ first dance. Before diving into the song titled “Try My Best,” Shawn explains that both he and Matt wrote the song together for this special day, and, according to Billboard, the song originated from a love letter Matt had written to Catherine (the very lucky bride). While strumming the intro, Shawn states,”So technically I’m not the only writer on this song. Matt and I both wrote this for you, Catherine, so I hope you love it.”
