The internet is begging Shawn Mendes for mercy after the Canadian crooner teased a steamy new pair of modeling shots.

The “In My Blood” singer, 20, stripped down to his skivvies for his debut as a Calvin Klein model — and though summer heat is still months away, the thirst is extremely real.

The shots, which Mendes shared to his 40.5 million Instagram followers Saturday, feature the star and his six-pack abs lounging in a kitchen and on a chair, wearing nothing but his Calvins.

“Delete this before my gf sees this,” rapper Hoodie Allen wrote in the comments.

Drake Bell appeared to have the same thought, as he replied, “My gf already saw it…she has my permission.”

The swoon-worthy shots — which have more than 7.2 million likes on Instagram as of Sunday afternoon — were also praised by stars like Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Tedder, Julia Michaels, Alex Rodriguez, Tom Daley and Charlie Puth.

“Killin’ it,” Lopez wrote alongside three fire emojis.

Mendes weighed in on his upcoming campaign with the iconic company, and noted that today’s youth are speaking up now more than ever.

“I think that youth, and this generation in general right now, are speaking so loudly, and people are listening more than ever,” he said in a statement. “And it’s incredible because they’re saying very, very important things and people are listening. I don’t think we’ve ever been louder as a younger generation – and in the best way.”

Fans of the singer took their excitement to Twitter, where various tweets and memes captured the lust many were feeling after Mendes unveiled the photos.

“Today’s tea: Shawn Mendes is an absolute snack,” one user wrote.

Mendes previously showed off his ripped physique at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10, when he performed both solo and with Miley Cyrus while wearing a sleeveless black vest.
