Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso featuring Florida Georgia Line and Watt, "Let Me Go"

Florida Georgia Line are no strangers to the EDM world, having collaborated with the Chainsmokers on their Memories... Do Not Open track "Last Day Alive" in 2017. While that song didn't make it to radio, their guest spot on the Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso song "Let Me Go" did, landing the duo in the Top 40 at the same time as another of their crossovers, "Meant to Be" with Bebe Rexha. Released in late 2017, "Let Me Go" features a vocal duet from pop artist Steinfeld and FGL, with production and arrangement from Swedish DJ Alesso. There's not much country to be found in this one, with its blippy synths and trop-pop beats, though Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley manage to sneak a little twang into the second verse with their two-part vocal harmony.
