Shawn Mendes’ hit "In My Blood" has become a radio staple and fan favorite since its release in March, but before it came out he was incredibly worried its serious tone would alienate fans.
He tells Stuff: "I was really nervous, but with that being said, it was the most gratifying record I've ever released, because the second it came out, my nerves went from 'People are going to think I'm crying about nothing' to, 'I'm so happy I released this song because so many people are reaching out to me'. It quickly became one of my greatest achievements."
Shawn will be taking the stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Vegas September 21st and 22nd. Get info at iHeartRadio.com/Festival.
