From the Album
• On March 16, 2018, Mendes first 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 be the same beige background color with a floral design, as featured in the single 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".
• "In My Blood" is a 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. "This song," he wrote in a social media post, "is the closest song to my heart that I've ever written".
• 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".
It debuted at number 72 on the Billboard Hot 100 after only one day of sales and streaming tracking and four days of airplay tracking. It rose fifty spots the following week to a new peak of 22. 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.
