Perhaps the hardest thing for a successful new artist to do is to carry over success from a debut album into the second album. The saying is that you have your entire life to make your first record and no time for the second.
But Brett Eldredge kicked off his sophomore album with a number one hit and now we’re getting the next single. It sounds like another big hit.
Drunk On Your Love – Brett Eldredge
Brett Eldredge is really good at finding good melodies. It seems like a switch just turned on a couple years ago and ever since he’s been able to find these really catchy tunes.
And he’s now had a string of four number ones on radio. That’s pretty crazy and doesn’t happen very often. And this new one sounds like it could be the fifth in a row.
But, man, I have a tough time picking songs to go number one. I’ll say that this one will reach the top three with an eye on the top spot, but we’ll have to see.
The song fits in pretty well with what Brett has done in the past. This one is a love song. The lyrics are pretty standard to what we’ve heard before. I would say it’s about a new love, but it could be about the love you have with someone when you haven’t seen them in awhile and you get lost in the time together.
But the story here is the melody. It’s really catchy and the more you listen the more you find yourself grooving to this one.
That usually spells a bit hit.
