Chris Young Selects ‘Think of You’, Duet With Cassadee Pope, as New Single [LISTEN]
Press play on the video below to hear the song, which will have big shoes to fill. The track follows "I'm Comin' Over," Young's first single from his newest project, which hit No. 1 and has been certified gold.
Young decided to ask Pope to sing with him on "Think of You" after watching her perform at an acoustic radio station event. She was his first ask -- and she, obviously, said yes.
"She’s definitely somebody that can sing her butt off," Young tells The Boot of Pope. "And that was really the defining thing in me wanting to ask her do a duet: She has an amazing voice. She's an amazing artist.
"One of the things I want to be known as, first and foremost, is, I’m a songwriter. Yes, I loved producing this project and putting my stamp on that part of it. But I’m a vocalist," Young continues. "I want people to leave my show or get done listening to my record, going, ‘Man, I love that that guy can sing like that.’"
Young co-wrote nine of the 11 songs on I'm Comin' Over, including the title track.
"Not only did I just really, really love [“I’m Comin’ Over”] when I wrote it, but also, because of the way we cut stuff on this record, it seemed like the perfect way to kind of bridge the gap between what I’d done sonically on prior records and what we’ve done on this,” Young tells The Boot. “And I thought it played real well and it balanced real well [with] what we were trying to evolve my sound as, and I think anybody that’s heard anything prior to this would go, ‘Oh, that sounds like something that he would do.’”
