On Monday, Shawn Mendes released the music video for his inspiring Khalid collab "Youth" via Apple Music. The clip is set in New York, and opens up with footage from Parkland High shooting survivor Emily Gonzalez's riveting March For Our Lives speech.


Throughout the rest of the video, Mendes and Khalid appear as minor players behind a number of trailblazing youth, including musicians, artists, dancers, inventors, scientists, and young politicians. The nearly eight minute visual highlights each kid at the end, giving their name and passion along with a short clip of their talents.

Mendes released a brief trailer for the video on Sunday. Watch it above, and watch the full video via Apple Music here.
