JoLivi, ‘Take a Shot’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Country newcomer JoLivi is premiering her brand-new song “Take a Shot” exclusively for readers of The Boot. Readers can press play below to hear the track.
A bubbly, upbeat drinking song, "Take a Shot" is JoLivi’s first foray into country music, replete with mentions of popular boozy spirits: "Are you down with Jameson pourin' all night? / Johnnie Walker sittin' on ice? / Throw it back with a little Jack ..."
"He says, 'Come on, girl, let's not waste it,'” sings JoLivi in the chorus of "Take a Shot." “Fireball when it hits you just right / Southern Comfort, it goes real nice with / You and me in a barroom scene / And if you take a shot / Take a shot on me.”
JoLivi wrote “Take a Shot” was written alongside her producer, Mark McKee; as JoLivi added country music to her live sets, the two began to discuss writing together -- and "Take a Shot" is the result.
“I don’t know why I waited so long," the artist says, "‘cause this feels so right.”
Before making her way to country music, JoLivi worked as a pop artist, recording two EPs and releasing three singles. The Hawaii-born songwriter's videos have racked up more than a million views on YouTube; she recently recorded a series of country cover videos, dubbed the Country Live Sessions, that she'll be releasing in the coming months.
Fans can keep up with JoLivi on her official website.
