March 2018 saw the return of Shawn Mendes, who brought us not just one, but two brand new singles, both of which vary greatly in style but have equally brilliant Feel-Good Friday vibes. We just couldn’t decide which one to share, so figured, why not share both?!
‘In My Blood’ is a (pop)-rock ballad that transcends from a soft, despairing beginning into a thunderous, passionate anthem by the very first chorus and continues to soar from there. This track shows off just how incredible Mendes’ vocals are with their raspy tones that show just how intensely meaningful this song is.
Meanwhile, ‘Lost In Japan’ is a melting pot of contemporary funk with R&B and pop flavours too; it’s very reminiscent of something by Justin Timberlake. This track is also passionate but in a very different way; lyrically the song expresses how Mendes would happily travel the globe just to be close to his lover, all of which sits atop a heavy bassline and groovy guitar rhythms.
Sadly, no music videos have been released as yet, but as soon as they do, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
What are your thoughts of Shawn Mendes’ two new singles? Are you as much of a fan as us? Have you got a #FeelGoodFriday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via our social media.

One thought on “#FeelGoodFriday: Shawn Mendes – ‘In My Blood’ & ‘Lost In Japan’”
I haven’t been much of a fan of Shawn Mendes, though I have to admit that both his vocals and songs are getting better as he matures – something that’s often the case with very young artists (see J. Bieber & S. Gomez). That said, I do like these two new songs, especially “Lost in Japan.”
