Cole Swindell, "Break Up in the End"
Cole Swindell has had some divisive moments in his rise to chart domination, from the pulse-free "Flatliner" to the party-heavy, Luke Bryan light "Chillin' It." But his new single, "Break Up in the End," is a dramatic turn for the Georgia native. Set to a simple guitar backdrop, Swindell's voice is more poignant and unvarnished than ever, floating through a gentle love song that shows how romance is worth it – even if it's destined to fail. "Break Up in the End" is a radical departure from anything Swindell's done before, and a welcome, mature surprise. M.M.
