This new one by Lee Brice acts as the perfect prologue to “Rumor”, which was released July 2018 and hit #1 on Billboard and Mediabase charts. “One of Them Girls” is a stream of consciousness that personifies those thoughts before you meet a potential lover. An honest fondness seeps out of these lyrics that exist solely to wonder about this female personality. Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson, Ben Johnson, and Brice included a healthy dose of hypothetical scenarios to play around with what one might find when getting to know this obscure yet charming presence in the room.
“And you’re one of them girls that / Ain’t tryna meet nobody / You’re just here for the party / If I’m wrong then stop me, yeah / You’re one of them girls that / Ain’t handin’ out your number / You like to make us want you, you like to make us wonder”
In its attempt to figure out a girl, the song becomes just as abstract. The imagery is blurry, but it’s there. Nonetheless, this song succeeds in its identity as a thought-provoking piece.
Brice was pulled to write this song during a moment of appreciation for his family on Father’s Day of last year. “But, it’s so very much about that girl that all of us—deep down, at the end of the day, at the end of our lives—really hope to have loving us,” he admits. The bridge supports this idea and suggests that all of those voiced characteristics were inspired by his wife, Sara. It seems that he solved the puzzle of one of them girls.
“You’re one of them girls / I wanna put my lips on / Hold all night long / Write a little love song”
