Welcome to the newest edition of Music Monday! This edition features a group of artists who expose their ever changing artistry on their latest new music.

Pop singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes continues to prove he is more than a teenage heartthrob with his latest release, “In My Blood”. The arena ready anthem is the first of two new singles released this past Friday. While his second new track, “Lost in Japan” finds Mendes at his most experimental, exploring the funky soul a la Justin Timberlake, however it’s “In My Blood” that steals the show.

The song is an acoustic guitar driven track that begins like a delicate sorrowful lullaby as Mendes tells you his sincere story about being in the lowest lows and pleading for help. Mendes’ artistic growth is undeniable, as the song continues to the bridge, his voice reaches an unseen vulnerable state oozing despair as the song production soars up to unseen music heights. “In My Blood” is Mendes’ most relatable work for everyday listeners because it touches on the moments in life where you see no end to the darkness swallowing you whole and you don’t see the light of hope waiting for you in the other side.
