Singer Shawn Mendes has performed his new song "In My Blood" on the Today show, the Billboard Music Awards, and The Ellen ShowHe's also performed it in BBC Radio's Live Lounge and now, Charlie Puth is giving it a go, too.

During his recent appearance in the Live Lounge, Puth performed his own rendition of "In My Blood" one that was slower and gentler than the original. Puth played the piano while singing softly, hitting the high notes with subtlety. 

"Hands down my favorite cover of the song!!!" one YouTube viewer commented on the performance.

"Charlie covering a Shawn song is all I've ever wanted," another commented. 

In 2017, Puth joined Mendes on his North American leg of his Iluminate world tour. Puth told Billboard magazine: 

"I'm always going out on stage wondering if people are going to sing along with me ... [Shawn] has songs that obviously everybody knows. All of his fans there, die-hard fans, will sing every lyric back, but seeing that so many times and having some of his fans sing every lyric of my song back — and being so excited to see me — it injected this newfound confidence in performing ... I was moving differently on stage."

We love that Puth has now covered "In My Blood," and we think it's the perfect cover to watch over and over again.
