Kane Brown and his last non-genre collaborator, songwriter / pop producer black bear, share a word of warning in their new song, “Memory. The song’s lyrics address the anxiety of living and partying in overdrive, while also worrying about when the repercussions will kick in.
“I want to live fast, I don’t know how to slow down / I want to get high, I don’t know how to get off / Help me now, I’m running on empty / And I don’t want to be a memory,” the two harmonize in the chorus.
Kane and blackbear exchange lead vocals throughout the song, Kane singing, “I know this can’t be healthy / So I’m looking for a way out,” in the first verse.
Through Billboard, “Memory” is heading to pop radio this Friday. Both artists co-wrote the track with Ernest smith, Andrew Goldstein and Joe kirkland. They also created the clip for their new song on YouTube on Friday afternoon, tapping into the platform for a live chat with fans shortly before.
“Memory” is the latest in a long line of non-country collaborations for Kane, who has previously shared songs with people like Marshmello, Khalid and Swae lee, Becky g and Camila Cabello.
Meanwhile, Kane also continues to dominate the country world. His duet single with Chris Young, “Famous Friends” is currently in the top five.
