LGBTQ+ fans continued to praise him due to him following this up with a duet with singer Shawn Mendes, who is also loved by the community. Their song “Youth” talks about gun violence and other political and social issues that were extremely relevant to young people at the time.
They performed it together at the Billboard Music Awards in 2018.
