The opening melody to this track offers all the Selena Gomez “Back to You” vibes with a more upbeat and carefree feel to it. To go along with this, the single art is perfectly paired to these flower child feels from Astrid S. and Brett Young. You can only imagine dancing and swaying to these lyrics in a field identical to the one that captures the voice of this singer-songwriter from Norway.
“I Do” categorizes the difficulty in moving on from a past relationship, specifically when alcohol is involved. The entire track conveys the thought process of a recent victim of heartbreak in which a guessing game comes into play. It’s a coin toss as to whether this longing is solely the effects of alcohol and loneliness rather than a genuine devotion to this person; one where the goodbye is still fresh in your mind.
“Am I lonely? / Is it really you I’m missing? / or just somebody? / I think I’ve got mixed feelings / with Bacardi / somehow I just can’t explain / ‘cause I don’t want me to want you”
This track stands out from many other collaborations because it doesn’t necessarily need a second voice to add character or depth. Astrid S. is a whole identity and it’s even more evident after listening to this release. However, Brett Young lending his vocals to this piece separates the 23-year-old upcoming female artist from his rendition of the song. It seems to be two songs in one since both acts show their creative abilities despite their different styles, which makes this production so strong.
“And I try not to wonder where you’ve been / And I try to have a drink, toss it back, I don’t wanna think / I really try not to miss you, but in the end / I do, I do”
“I was so honored to be asked to collaborate on this track with Astrid. When I first heard ‘I Do,’ I instantly connected to the lyrics and storytelling, so jumping onboard and digging into something a little bit different was a no-brainer for me. I can’t wait for the fans to hear this one,” Young says in a recent press release.
