Shawn Mendes bares his washboard abs as he enjoys the beach in Miami ahead of his 24th birthday

Shawn Mendes wore a huge smile on his face as he took to the beach in Miami on Saturday.

The pop star — whose 24th birthday is August 8 — showed off his gym-honed abdomen in cranberry-colored swim trunks.

He bared his numerous tattoos on his tanned torsos as he soaked up the sun and sand with friends.

It comes more than one week after the singer–songwriter announced he would be canceling his world tour to focus on his mental health.

Shawn’s thick tussles of curls were slick with water after he took a dip in the ocean over the weekend.

He wore a thin gold necklace around his neck that had two pendants hanging from it, which rested on his chest.

The heartthrob sported a shadow of facial hair, as well as hair on his chest. And on his fingers he rocked three rings between both hands.

Before news of his canceled tour broke, the hitmaker had postponed some of the gigs to focus on his mental health.

But it was confirmed on Wednesday, via social media, that all dates have been scrapped as he prioritizes his wellbeing.

‘As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll of being back on the road would take on me,’ he said in a heartfelt message to his fans.

‘I started this tour excited to finally get back to playing live after a long break due to the pandemic, but the reality is I was not at all ready for how difficult touring would be after this time away,’ he explained.

‘After speaking more with my team and working with an incredible group of health professionals, it has become more clear that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger,’ the Stitches songwriter continued. 

‘I unfortunately have to cancel the rest of the tour dates in North America, and the UK/Europe.

‘We were hopeful that I might be able to pick up with the rest of the dates after some much needed time off, but at this time I have to put my health as my first priority,’ he affirmed.

Shawn assured his fans that he will still be making music and expressed that he felt heartbroken to let those who had tickets for the gigs down.

The Canadian-born singer taught himself to play the guitar when he was 14 by studying tutorials on YouTube.

He started sharing music covers on the site, later obtaining success with the release of his version of Justin Bieber’s As Long As You Love Me on Vine. 

In April 2014, he won Ryan Seacrest’s Best Cover Song contest and released his first single, Life Of The Party in June of that year.

‘I’ve been touring since I was 15 and to be honest it’s always been difficult to be on the road away from friends and family,’ he said on social media after he canceled the initial string of gigs.
