Shawn Mendes "Shawn Mendes" album review

Shawn Mendes is the self-titled third studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes released on May 25, 2018 through Island Records. If you don't know who Shawn Mendes is or you have been a fan of him since one day, then you should definitely go and give his new album a listen.

In My Blood serves as the opening track for Shawn Mendes. This song is described as a "rock ballad" while also sticking to Shawn's acoustic roots as he sings about struggling with anxiety with lyrics like, "Laying on my bathroom floor, feeling nothing/ I'm overwhelmed and insecure, give me something/ I could take to ease my mind slowly", and, "Help me, it's like the walls are caving in/ Sometimes I feel like giving up/ No medicine is strong enough/ Someone help me/ I'm crawling in my skin/ Sometimes I feel like giving up/ But I just can't", before singing on the chorus with, "It isn't in my blood/ It isn't in my blood".

H.E.R. Vol. 2 EP was released on June 16, 2017 by R&B singer H.E.R. Also, while you're at it, check out my review on Vol. 1 by clicking on the link you see below:

Every Kind Of Way serves as the opener to Vol. 2. This song is where the singer touches on themes like love and emotion to a guy that she has been having a crush on singing, "Baby, the sound of you/ Better than a harmony/ I want you off my mind/ And on me/ Holding me closer than we've ever been before/ This ain't a dream/ You're here with me/ Boy, it don't get no better than you/ For you, I wanna take my time/ All night", and then describes her undying love for this person with the chorus, "I wanna love you in every kind of way/ I wanna please you no matter how long it takes/ If the world should end tomorrow and we only have today/I'm gonna love you in every kind of way."
