I have been a fan of Shawn Mendes since his days on Vine when he rose to fame with amazing covers of songs. That was over three years ago. Today, Shawn is back with his new Single 'In My Blood' which chronicles his struggle with anxiety disorder.
Lyrically, he's the same Shawn we all knew - broken, brooking and with his heart on his sleeve - but the age and experience has since emboldened him. It seems like heartbreak is no longer a detriment to his powers, but now a creative fuel. He has been getting some songwriting support from pop superstars such as Ed Sheeran and John Mayer, and it's definitely paying off.
'In My Blood' is a really unique and catchy pop-rock song. I can see why it's trending as the #5 song on the iTunes charts! It is the first time he has publicly discusses his experiences with anxiety disorder, but wanted to help people connect with it or understand it.
I love the soft yet despairing vibe that the song gives off. It's really emotional. It's become one of my fave songs!

- Emotional, with deep meaning.
- A catchy rock/pop rock ballad.
I really enjoy the acoustic opening and the insistent drum that comes in before Shawn's voice rises on the chorus.
