Toby Keith is doing more hip hop. He did it about ten years back when he spoke incredibly fast through one of his hits. The song back then got a lot of traction and became a big hit.
Toby is looking for another one with this one. Check it out.
Shut Up And Hold On – Toby Keith
Toby definitely has the voice and attitude to pull off this kind of song. He’s been doing it for twenty years and he still has it.
But for the last couple years Toby has been kind of struggling to crack the top 15 on the charts. He hasn’t the kind of hits like he’s had in the past. He’s still having hits, but nothing to the scale that he’s used to.
I’m sure he’s going to keep making music, but you never know. Maybe he’ll get bored of not having the huge success and he’ll look for something else to do.
It feels like maybe he’s reaching a little bit with this one. I don’t know. We’ll have to see. It’s a good song. The melody is good. It sounds different while feeling modern, but it just sounds like another top 30 or maybe top 20 song. I don’t see it racing to the top of the charts.
We’ll have to wait and see how the fans react.
