It’s the stuff our dreams are made of – the two Canadian singer-songwriters being fond of each other, and maybe then… well, no, but it turns out Shawn Mendes does do CERTAIN things to Justin Bieber.

Bieber took to Twitter, where he has more than 88 Million followers, to congratulate Mendes on his new album, and explain that the 18-year-old singer… makes him smile:

Shawn Mendes’ voice makes me smile. Truly a gift to be able to move people’s emotions through songs!

So proud of you brother! Great album!

Bieber also called his fans to to listen to Mendes’ new album, Illuminate:

The ongoing relationship between the two handsome boys has known its ups and downs. Last year, in an interview, Bieber claimed not to know who Mendes is – but he later Twitted a sort-of apology:

Shawn I checked out the music and I’m so proud! So glad to see another boy from Canada crushin it. #canadiansdoitbetter.

Mendes then did his part, and posted a cover of Bieber’s song “What Do You Mean?” –

What do you meannn?
