Florida Georgia Line seems to be committed to showing just how versatile they can be. The duo’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have already established themselves as a cornerstone to an entire trend in country music, but they’ve also sidestepped into more hip-hoppy grooves and rap-inspired lyrics, as well as straight-up pop music. Now the gifted pair is taking a big swing at R & B.
With their new single, “Women,” Brian and Tyler reunited with singer-songwriter Jason Derulo and the results are impressive. Written by BK, T-Hub, and Jason, along with David Garcia and Josh Miller, “Women” is the third song from FGL’s upcoming album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country.
In a release, Tyler says that they set out to create “something soulful, something that’s real.” Jason calls the song an “all-encompassing celebration” of women while Brian says that it “captures the beauty of their spirit.”
The companion video for “Women” is shot in black-and-white, giving in a melancholy and vintage feel. Cameras follow the trio of singers into the Nightbird Studio in Los Angeles where viewers are given a peek into the creative process of the dreamy ballad. As the three obvious friends lay down vocals to the music, they can also be heard discussing the content and tone of the song, and what they hope others hear when they listen.
Florida Georgia Line and Jason Derulo first worked together along with Luke Bryan on the 2014 remix of “This Is How We Roll.” At this rate, could we someday hear an entire album of collaborations between these artists? Maybe, but for now, we’ll just wait for Can’t Say I Ain’t Country to be released on February 15.
