Priscilla Block has announced her debut self-titled EP is set for April 30th. Additionally, she dropped a brand new song, “Wish You Were The Whiskey”, available now, April 7th, everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
TikTok star turned major-label artist, Priscilla Block released a brand-new song today, April 7th, titled “Wish You Were The Whiskey.” This track follows “I Bet You Wanna Know” and “Just About Over You,” which soared to number one on iTunes within 12 hours of its release.
Block has been teasing this song to fans on social media for a while now. She even burned a copy of the song on CDs and mailed them out to some lucky fans for early-listen access. The vocalist in the song is at the bar, pouring back Jameson to help her get over a breakup. Over a pop-rock production, Block expresses the similarities between the whiskey and her ex.
“Now I’m drunk, like a fireball lighting me up // Put it to my lips and I feel that rush // Letting 80-proof do what it does // and I’m high, it’s rocking me through the night // Keeping me warm, holding me so tight // Finally feeling fine and then it hits me // I wish you were the whiskey”
Block admitted on Instagram that a little over a year ago, she tried to pitch the song to Jason Aldean – and it would have been perfect for him. Between the lyrics, the imagery it portrays, and the loud, percussion-heavy sound, it is right up his alley and his voice would sound great on it. He already had a lot of songs about whiskey on his latest album, 9, which may be why he did not decide to cut it, or perhaps he just never saw the post. It was surely a missed opportunity because, with its catchy chorus, we think this could become a big hit for Block.
Block was singing covers and even some original songs for her followers on TikTok before officially releasing “Just About Over You” and signing with UMG Nashville last September. Her humorous side and positive attitude along with her powerful vocals and creative songwriting ability has helped her become an overnight success, which is why we selected her as one of NYCSwag’s 2021 artists to watch.
