Why do you gotta do this to me, Shawn?
Shawn Mendes is a tease. There, I said it. Mr. Shawn Mendes has given us another single in a matter of two days. I’m not complaining about it because “In My Blood” was everything I didn’t know that I need in my life. We are now in full swing of the third era of Shawn Mendes. So far, I am here for it.
“Lost in Japan” is totally the opposite of what I totally expected. It’s actually a mix of Justin Timberlake, Nick Jonas, and John Mayer. It’s pure pop. That means its pure everything. I don’t know what Shawn is trying to do with the album but I’m here for it. It’s a super sexy song to as well. It’s something that I would expect from Charlie Puth, but I like this side of Shawn.
The lyrics tell a story about wanting to meet up where the girl is staying in Japan because he can’t get her off his mind. I’m pretty sure “Lost in Japan” is a euphemism for something else. It’s something like how “Cake by the Ocean” is really about having sex on a beach. I just haven’t decided if this is about real sex or just him playing with himself. Either way, It’s a Shawn Mendes sex song.
The production on this song is excellent. It starts out with a piano before just busting out that sick beat. Like I said before, it’s a super sexy song. Like it has sexy flowing from its pores if a song was to have pores. I honestly hope that this is the first single because I want to see the video for this song.
Shawn Mendes’ song “Lost in Japan” is everything. I like it more than I liked “In My Blood.” It extremely catchy and it’s a banger and bop rolled all into one. I highly recommend this song. Frankly, this is my favorite song that he has put out so far for this era. After listening to “Lost in Japan,” the gif choice is on fleek. You’re welcome for that.
Here’s the song for your ears to enjoy:
