Honestly, I can’t even tell if this is serious or not.
Look, I know a lot of people hate what artists like Sam Hunt brought to country music, but at the minimum, even those people would likely agree that Sam can sing, and write a good song (whether you consider it “country” or not is a different story).
Backstreet Boy AJ McLean recently said he wanted to “disrupt” country music; whatever the fuck that means. News flash guy, it’s already been disrupted (see above). Now, he has a debut “country” single. I think Wes sitting next to me is a better singer, first off. Also, the production sucks. My puppy recently ate three socks, and puked them all out like a machine, in succession. The sounds of those socks coming back out are how I would describe this song.
You may hate a Sam Hunt, or FGL, or whoever, but at least the production is there, whether that production is country or not is again, another discussion and debate. AJ is a 40-year-old boy band member that never had the pipes to out-sing Brian or Nick – let’s be real, people. Now, he wants to be “country” and “disrupt” the genre?
Get this shit out of my face. I’m gonna go listen to Cody Jinks to cleanse my soul.
