Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have contributed to a new song that is a far cry from country music, despite the mention of a picket fence in the lyrics.
The dynamic duo shares vocals with actress and singer Hailee Steinfeld on her new track, “Let Me Go,” which also features Swedish DJ/ producer Alesso and songwriter Watt.
The catchy call-and-response tune, which dropped on Sept. 8, can certainly speak to many no longer existing relationships since its about a couple who goes their separate ways after one partner no longer has romantic feelings for the other. The song isn’t entirely bitter, though, as the singer only wishes for their former partner to find love again.
“It’s been some time / But this time ain’t even / I can leave it in the past / But you’re holding on to what you never had,” sing FGL on the dance track’s second verse. “It’s good on paper / Picture perfect / Chased the high too far, too fast / Picket white fence but we paint it black.”
This, of course, isn’t FGL’s first time collaborating outside the country genre. They’ve previously worked with the Backstreet Boys on “God, Your Mama, and Me,” Jason Derulo on a remix of “This Is How We Roll,” Nelly on a remix of “Cruise,” Bebe Rexa on “Meant To Be,” the Chainsmokers on “Last Day Alive” and Ziggy Marley on album track “Life Is A Honeymoon.” In addition to that, both the Backstreet Boys and Nelly joined the duo on their 2017 Smooth Tour, which goes until mid-October.
