Shawn Mendes Drops His Second Song of the Week, the Sultry “Lost in Japan”

By  | 

This has been a whirlwind week for Shawn Mendes fans — and we aren’t complaining. Earlier this week, the 19-year-old musician posted on social media, saying that exciting news about his new music was about to drop.

On Wednesday at midnight, we got the first taste of new Shawn music with the song “In My Blood.” “In My Blood” is a classic Shawn song that blends well with his previous work, while also showing off his improved and heartfelt songwriting.

When he first announced new music, we knew that we would also be getting something today on March 23rd, but we had no clue what it would be! Yesterday we said we hoped it was a music video or album name, but what we got was even better!

Once again at midnight, Shawn dropped a BRAND-NEW tune called “Lost in Japan,” and it is a BOP.

“Lost in Japan” has a way more pop-funk feeling than Shawn’s other work, and we love that he is willing to try new genres and branch away from what he is known for. Add that to the fact that there are steamy lyrics like, “I’m a couple hundred miles from Japan, and I was thinking I could fly to your hotel tonight,” and we know that this will definitely be a chart-topper.

If you need us, we’ll be listening to Shawn’s two new songs on repeat for the rest of the weekend.
