Country-trap performer Breland enjoyed a viral hit earlier in 2020 with “My Truck,” an irresistible ode to pickups that zoomed to the top of Spotify’s charts after Tik Tok users began using it enthusiastically. After signing a new record deal, the Atlanta-based performer has returned with a remix of “My Truck” featuring Sam Hunt.
The new version retains the same ghostly, cavernous thump as the original, with Breland starting it off with his familiar declarations: “You can say you hate me/You can call me crazy, but/Don’t touch my truck.” But he also cedes a considerable amount of the spotlight to Hunt, who displays his familiarity and comfort with the tricky rhythmic cadences of trap across his two verses. “Paid 8 for it, woulda paid 8 more/Wouldn’t trade that sucker for a million bucks,” he sings.
Breland has been busy at work on new music under his deal with Atlantic, cooking up a mix of pop-country, R&B, and hip-hop that shows him branching out from “My Truck.” His debut EP is slated for release in May.
Hunt, meanwhile, released his long-awaited second album Southside earlier in April. Among the tracks are his Number One hits “Kinfolks” and “Body Like a Back Road,” as well as the Webb Pierce-sampling current single “Hard to Forget.”
