Feat marks Brown and Khalid’s biggest first week launch at the format
Multi-platinum country superstar Kane Brown’s latest track, “Be Like That” with Swae Lee & Khalid is the No. 1 most added record at Top 40 Radio. The track marks both Brown’s and Khalid’s biggest first week launch at the format with over 100 stations adding the record.
The pop-forward summer anthem, which all three artists had a hand in writing, follows Brown’s unifying ballad “Worldwide Beautiful,” which he released last month and debuted on nationwide television with a performance at the 2020 BET Awards on June 28th.
“Be Like That” reunites past collaborators Brown and Khalid, who teamed up for a remix of Khalid’s single, “Saturday Nights,” in January 2019. From there, Brown went on to work with a series of stars across multiple genres, including EDM artist Marshmello, with whom he co-wrote and released “One Thing Right,” which reached the Top 15 at Mediabase’s Pop Radio Airplay chart. His ballad with John Legend, “Last Time I Say Sorry,” followed in March 2020 and peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart. The following month, Brown dropped “Cool Again,,” which closed out April as the most-added single to country radio and is currently Top 15 and rising on the Country Airplay charts.
Swae Lee released “Reality Check” last month, his first new music since his feature on Chloe x Halle’s hit “Catch Up” from their Top R&B Albums No. 2 long-player, Ungodly Hour. Earlier this year, Khalid, who was just named BMI’s Songwriter of the Year, alongside Post Malone, unveiled a pair of critically acclaimed new singles, “Know Your Worth” with Disclosure and “Eleven” feat. Summer Walker along with stunning visuals to accompany both tracks.
