Shawn Mendes: "In My Blood" Shows Spirited Defiance
Having reached the Top 10 of Billboard Hot 100 in each of the past three years, Shawn Mendes' release of "In My Blood" from his upcoming third studio album welcomes 2018 as another promising year for the young Canadian.
As for those Mendes hits in past years, "Stitches" went to No. 4 in 2015, "Treat You Better" went to No. 6 in 2016 and "There's Nothing Holding Me Back" went to No. 6 in 2017. His first two albums — 2015's Handwritten and 2016's Illuminate — peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. That is a lot of impact for a talent who turns 20 this coming Aug. 8.
"In My Blood" was co-written by Mendes with Teddy Geiger, Scott Harris and Geoff Warburton — the same collective behind "There's Nothing. …"
Look for Mendes to perform his new song on "The Late Late Show With James Corden" on March 28.
And save the date: On April 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Mendes will perform with SZA on the CBS two-hour concert special "Elton John: I'm Still Standing – A GRAMMY Salute." The two talents will duet on the John classic "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."
