Lauren Alaina Debuts New Single, ‘Next Boyfriend’ [LISTEN]
The song shows off how Alaina's sound has matured since her time on American Idol and the release of her debut album, Wildflower, in 2011 -- but the pop-country tune doesn't forget about her longtime fans.
“You look a lot like my next boyfriend / I can’t believe how much you act like him," Alaina sings. "You and me, we’d be unbelievable / And I’m available / No, I don’t think it’s a coincidence / I put it all together, it makes sense / Boy, you ain’t no fling or a could’ve been / You look a lot like my next boyfriend.”
Alaina co-wrote each of the songs on her new EP, including "Next Boyfriend," on which she was joined by Emily Weisband and Matt McVaney.
The Georgia native underwent vocal cord surgery in 2014, which gave her a break from touring and the chance to focus on her new project ... and Alaina says that her time off “was the best growing experience I’ve ever had.”
“Out of everything I’ve ever done, I had time to figure myself out, come into my sound,” she explains. “I’m excited for people to hear it. It’s a new me.”
