‘Grand’ is from Kane Brown’s upcoming album
Brown released “Grand” on July 22, and the song strays from the country genre with more pop and hip-hop elements.
In an interview with Audacy, Brown shared how it felt to leave the country with “Grand.”
“I’ve always been so afraid to go out and just do the Pop thing. If you hear a lot from me [songs], they still have that Country streak…not this one,” Brown said. “Now, I’m not afraid, I feel like I am who I am now, I just feel comfortable with myself.”
With “Grand,” Brown examines how grateful he is for life and the support he has.
And I wouldn’t trade it for anything / No, I’d never trade it / It’s too long to live it for anything / So this is my mood forever / Isn’t life great? / Only the ones I keep around me is my family / It’s no coincidence, it’s always been the plan / And I always keep it jolly with the fans,” Brown sings on “Grand.”
