"In My Blood" is a song recorded by Canadian singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes. Written by Geoff Warburton, Scott Harris and its producers Mendes and Teddy Geiger, it was released by Island Records on March 22, 2018, as the lead single from Mendes' self-titled third studio album.

"In My Blood" chronicles Mendes' struggle with anxiety. It marks the first time the singer has publicly discussed his experiences with the mental health disorder.

On his decision to write the song, Mendes said he wanted to "make something as serious as anxiety tangible where everybody can listen to it and either connect with it or understand it". He then added that, "sometimes it lasts two hours, sometimes it lasts a day and sometimes it lasts five minutes". He emphasized that, "The point of the song is that no matter how long that lasts, you can come out the other end stronger and you come out of the other end always".

On March 16, 2018, Mendes posted a collage on social media consisting of two uncaptioned images of blank color blocks, one in beige and one in coral. He later changed his profile picture to a beige background color with a floral design, as featured in the single’s artwork.

On March 19, Mendes partnered with Spotify to promote the single on a billboard in New York's Times Square that reads "Shawn Mendes coming soon". Shortly after, he posted a video that includes two dates: March 22 and March 23. The dates were also projected in various places in London.

He officially announced the song on March 20, along with its release date and the single’s artwork. "This song," he wrote in a social media post, "is the closest song to my heart that I've ever written". A Portuguese version was also released on June 3, 2018 in support of Portugal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, owing to Mendes' Portuguese heritage.

"In My Blood" is a rock and pop rock ballad, whose acoustic opening was described as "soft and despairing". As the song progresses, "an insistent drum comes in" before Mendes' voice rises on the chorus. A Rolling Stone contributor noted that the chorus features "shuddering drums" and "throbbing electric guitars", with "choral backing vocals" that "add soothing textures to the final hook". Mendes's vocals spare from A2 to C5 in this song.

Jon Caramanica from The New York Times opined it as a standout in comparison to Mendes' previous singles, referring to how "scarred and forlorn" he sounds while commending his songwriting ability. Hugh McIntyre of Forbes.com noted that the song is an evolution of Mendes' well-known sound, beginning with "a familiar acoustic guitar". He wrote that Mendes has adopted "a more mature Kings of Leon-type sound", calling the song "a job well done".

Mike Nied of Idolator opined that "the sweeping anthem offers an intimate glimpse into his deepest thoughts", with a radio-friendly pop rock instrumental, adding that the song "sounds like another sure-fire smash". He concluded by calling it "a moving and inspiring track and a wonderful taste of things to come". Gil Kaufman of Billboard deemed the song "one of Mendes' most mature efforts to date". In another Billboard article, Abby Jones listed it as his best single to date. Fuse's Jeff Benjamin praised the song's mature themes and deemed it an "arena-rock anthem."

It debuted at number 72 on the US Billboard Hot 100 after only one day of sales and streaming tracking and four days of airplay tracking. It has since risen to its current peak of number 11. Mendes became the first artist to have four number-one songs on the Billboard Adult Top 40 radio airplay chart before turning 20 years old, with "In My Blood" being his fourth.

In Canada, the single debuted at 62 also after one day of tracking. The following week, it rose 53 spots to a new peak of 9, making it Mendes' fifth top 10 in his home country. It went number one in Hungary and reached the top 10 of several European and Asian countries.

The music video for the song was uploaded on April 24, 2018. Directed by Jay Martin, the video features Shawn Mendes lying on the floor barefoot, while his surroundings begin to change. As he sings, it begins to snow and rain. The video ends with a wide shot of Mendes surrounded by a garden of flowers.

On March 28, 2018, Mendes made a live performance debut of the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden. On April 12, Mendes performed the song live during the German Echo Music Prize. Mendes performed the song several times in the UK, including at the BBC Radio Live Lounge on April 19, on Sounds Like Friday Night on April 20, and at Queen Elizabeth II's 92nd birthday party at the Royal Albert Hall in London on April 21. On April 24, Mendes performed the song at the TIME 100 Gala.

Mendes's performance of the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show aired on May 17, and he performed the song at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on May 20. He performed the song on The One Show on May 28, and as part of his set at BBC Music's Biggest Weekend in Swansea on May 27. Mendes also performed the song as part of his sets on The Today Show and at the Governors Ball Music Festival, both on June 1 in New York City, and at Wango Tango the next day in Los Angeles. He performed the song at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards held in New York on August 20.

"In My Blood"

Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can't
It isn't in my blood

Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing
I'm overwhelmed and insecure, give me something
I could take to ease my mind slowly
Just have a drink and you'll feel better
Just take her home and you'll feel better
Keep telling me that it gets better
Does it ever?

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
It isn't in my blood

It isn't in my blood

I'm looking through my phone again feeling anxious
Afraid to be alone again, I hate this
I'm trying to find a way to chill, can't breathe, oh
Is there somebody who could...

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
It isn't in my blood

It isn't in my blood

I need somebody now
I need somebody now
Someone to help me out
I need somebody now

Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can't
It isn't in my blood

It isn't in my blood
It isn't in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn't in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn't in my blood
