Shawn Mendes Covers Niall Horan’s ‘Nice to Meet Ya’

Niall Horan is finally back with some new music, and even his friend Shawn Mendes is taking part in the hype.

The “If I Can’t Have You” crooner took to his Instagram story on Thursday (Oct. 10) to share a cover of the former One Direction member’s latest single, “Nice to Meet Ya.” Played on guitar with a black-and-white filter, Mendes captures the upbeat energy of the tune.

“The lyrics came about from a half-true story,” Horan recently told Billboard of his sexy new song. “I was out one night and locked eyes with this girl. We got chatting, and she was with a group of her mates and I was with a group of my mates. It felt like every time I turned around — like the lyric says — she just kind of disappeared. But then over the course of the same night, in different bars around that same area, we would bump into each other. It’s a song that is basically like a movie that is based on a true story, and then you start changing stuff that makes the song start to sound a little bit more interesting.”

“Nice to Meet Ya” is the lead single off the crooner’s upcoming sophomore album, which does not yet have a release date. Check out Mendes’ cover below.
