Kane Brown collaborates with blackbear on new song, “Memory,” available now, July 9th on all streaming platforms. The cross-genre track will be Brown’s next single to pop radio. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.
“Memory” was penned by Kane Brown, blackbear (Matthew Musto), esteemed pop writers Andrew Goldstein and Joe Kirkland, and Nashville’s very own ERNEST. This midtempo snap-track starts with Brown first speaking and then singing about his career, success, and life in general, living life in the constant fast lane and avoiding any letdown. However, there is fear that things will slow down, becoming just a memory. blackbear takes over the next verse, expressing the same concerns.
I wanna live life fast, I don’t know how to slow down // Wanna get high, I don’t know how to come down // Help me now, I’m running on empty // and I don’t wanna be a memory
Brown is no stranger to exploring with sounds outside of his genre and loves collaborating with artists in and out of Nashville. Since 2017, he has dominated the country charts with six number one hits, including his most recent chart-topper “Famous Friends” with Chris Young, which just reached the top spot last week.
The singer has also seen success on mainstream Top 40 radio, with two songs reaching the top twenty; “One Thing Right” with Marshmello (#16) and “Be Like That” with Swae Lee and Khalid (#8). blackbear, who is one of the most popular artists to collaborate with right now, has seen radio success himself with hits like “Hot Girl Bummer,” “Monsters” with All Time Low, and “my ex’s best friend” with Machine Gun Kelly.
With these two powerhouses pairing up, this song has the potential to top the charts as well. “Memory” is looking like another hit for the singer!
Brown will be hitting the road this fall on his Blessed and Free Tour with special guests Jordan Davis, Chase Rice, and Restless Road. blackbear is hitting the road with Maroon 5 beginning this August. Head to their respected websites for tickets.
