Shawn Mendes gave fans a glimpse into his life and his struggle with anxiety after the release of his hit single “In My Blood” back in March.
Now, singer-songwriter Charlie Puth is taking his own spin on the rock-inspired song with a tear-jerking piano cover in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.
Just like the original, Puth begins the tune with only a piano and his smooth vocals. But where Mendes’ voice usually explodes in the chorus, Puth keeps it mellow, making the lyrics feel even more raw and devastating with the piano playing in the background
The 26-year-old also took time to sing his own hit song, “How Long”. Take a look at his performance below.
You can hear more of Puth’s soothing voice and singer-songwriter skills on his second studio album, “Voicenotes”, which is available to stream now.
