I gotta admit, I had some high hopes for Luke Bryan’s new single leading the charge for the new album.
We’ve posted some of the new songs he’s been teasing, and they definitely seemed to be more of the Luke from I’ll Stay Me. However, his new single “Light It Up” has a very familiar sound, almost to the point I could see fans mixing up this song with others from Bryan like “Strip It Down.” From a lyrical point of view, it even has a similar vibe to Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” although Luke’s is more of a “love story” versus Drake’s booty call.
It has the drum-beat R&B thing going for it, like you expect from Luke’s singles as of late. I was hoping one of his newer songs that pushed Luke back to his earlier stuff would get to carry the torch in anticipation of the new album, but we’ll have to wait for those.
Listen to “Light It Up” below and let us know what you think.
