Destination Jam: Our Top 5 Kane Brown songs that prove why he is touted as country music's rising star
If you tuned in to the star-studded summertime event 'CMA Summer Stay-Cay' on Wednesday, July 1, you may have noticed a special performance by country singer Kane Brown, who sang a previously unreleased track, titled 'BFE' from his upcoming EP. For those who need to be acquainted with this rising country star, we have compiled a list of our five favorite songs on today's Destination Jam.
Right off the bat, when you hear Brown's powerfully deep and gruff vocals for the first time, you can't help but fall in love with his songs. 'Heaven', which released in 2017, is easily one of those numbers. It was released as the third single on the re-release of his self-titled debut album and reached No 1 on the Country Airplay chart dated May 19, 2018, becoming the singer's second No 1 on the chart. It also reached No 2 on the Hot Country Songs chart.
'One Thing Right' with Marshmello
The genre-hopping track 'One Thing Right' is a collaborative effort with American electronic music producer and DJ Marshmello. You may notice Brown ain't your typical cowboy-styled artiste of country music as he would rather don hip-hop-inspired gear over a cowboy hat, jacket, and boots. Likewise, his music tastefully reflects the blend of the two styles, although it is thick in all the sounds country music lovers would enjoy. In this track, both Blake and Marshmello prove to be masters of their craft as the song slides in EDM elements and is insanely catchy.
'Last Time I Say Sorry' featuring John Legend
Another amazing collaboration, the heartrending 'Last Time I Say Sorry' features John Legend. Brown lays his heart on his sleeve with candid romantic crooning in the lyrics, "I won't say I'm sorry over and over. Can't just say I'm sorry, I've gotta show you. I won't do it again, I'll prove my love is true. I hope the last time I said sorry. Is the last time I'll say sorry to you." Blake's vocal versatility is also shown in this track as he adopts a subtle soulful tone.
'What's Mine Is Yours'
Brown consistently shines in his ballads. In the romantic music video for 'What's Mine Is Yours', which released in 2017, Brown enlisted his wife, fellow musician Katelyn Jae (who was his fiancee at the time), to show off a little domestic bliss. A sense of passion underlines many of Brown's songs: in this track, Brown sings, "What's mine is yours. Every breathe I take, every choice I make. It might sound crazy. All my pain, washed away, in the blink of an eye. Yeah, you saved me. You got all of me and I don't need it anymore. What's mine is yours."
In the upbeat 'Lose It', Brown rocks out over a banjo, a steady power beat, and scorching guitar. The catchy track is the lead single on his second major-label album 'Experiment'. After its release in 2018, it reached critical acclaim and successful public reception, peaking at No 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
