Shawn Mendes' third studio album will be here in less than a week, and the 19-year old star revved up anticipation with a performance of its riveting lead single at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.
"In My Blood" is a somber, heartfelt track for Mendes (about his battle with anxiety) and his stage show reflected that. The lights were dimmed, with a bed of light-up flowers illuminating the stage around Mendes and his backing band. Playing guitar alongside his gripping vocals, Mendes delivered the mid-tempo rock ballad to the Las Vegas crowd.
Despite the weighty subject matter, the audience latched onto positive vibes -- especially Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello, both of whom the cameras caught dancing along.
