Shawn Mendes whipped the Internet into a frenzy with the midnight release of “In My Blood” today (March 22). The 19-year-old Canadian sweetheart showed his vulnerable side in this raw track, which is the lead single from his forthcoming third studio album.
Members of the Mendes Army were floored by the anthemic tune, and they immediately took to Twitter to express their feelings of the song’s sound and raw lyrics. Mendes is clearly facing some distressing heartbreak in this song, and fans were quick to feel just as emotional or offer a supporting shoulder to cry on.
