Recently, Shawn Mendes stopped by BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge to perform his new song, "In My Blood." But Mendes also took the opportunity to perform Post Malone's "Psycho," and we're glad he did.

Billboard describes the performance: "The 19-year-old turned the hip-hop hit into a soft-rock jam, with his smooth vocals laid over gentle electric guitar and haunting keyboard chords." 

YouTube viewers also pointed out that Mendes changed some of the lyrics, including Malone's original line "Gave ugly girl a sip," which he made "Gave every girl a sip."

This isn't the first time Mendes has taken to the Live Lounge: in 2016, he performed a cover of Drake's "Fake Love," Alessia Cara's "Here," and his own hit, "Stitches." 

Now, Mendes' latest performance has raked in more than 200,000 views, and it's one we'll probably have on repeat for a while. 

On Tuesday, Mendes dropped a music video for "In My Blood," tweeting a teaser below:

We can't wait to see what he does next!
