Country superstar, Kane Brown finally dropped his pop-collaboration, “Be Like That” with Khalid and Swae Lee today (July 10th). Fans have been waiting for the official release of this song since videos of him performing this at his shows back in February surfaced the internet. When we saw it live at the Atlantic City stop on his Worldwide Beautiful Tour, he said it would be his next single to pop radio and teased possible guest features. Watch it below:
“Be Like That” is a heavily produced track in which the singer describes his complicated relationship. He hates constantly texting her and thinks he might be better off on his own but at the same time he says he’s not himself without her and he would never be able to move on if they broke up. This is a common scenario that is not often expressed. The usual situation described in country music involves two people who have broken up but after a few drinks, they make an overnight mistake which leads them to evaluate their status. The singer calls attention to what’s going through the mind of someone in that relationship rather than what that person is doing to get over it.
“I might be better on my own / I hate you blowing up my phone / I wish I never met your ass / Sometimes it be like that”
Swae Lee takes the second verse of the song and joins Brown for the third chorus while Khalid, who has joined Brown on a previous song called “Saturday Nights,” takes the third verses and backups the fourth and final chorus. Brown is no stranger to cross-genre productions as he has featured on songs with Marshmello, Becky G, Camila Cabello, John Legend, and more. Himself and rapper, Nelly, who has been featured on numerous country tracks already, will team up for a “Cool Again” remix coming out soon. The Texas-native teased the track on his Instagram page last month.
