After sharing a snippet of the song on social media earlier this year, country superstar Kane Brown and 10-time Grammy winner John Legend just dropped their brand new duet, “Last Time I Say Sorry.”

The piano-driven ballad features gorgeous harmonies and falls within Legend’s pop/R&B wheelhouse. Brown holds his own alongside Legend, delivering some of his best vocal work to date.

Lyrically, the song finds Brown and Legend vowing to be better men.

“I won’t say I’m sorry over and over/Can’t just say I’m sorry, I’ve gotta show you/ I won’t do it again, I’ll prove my love is true/ I hope the last time I said sorry/ Is the last time I’ll say sorry to you,” Brown and Legend croon throughout the chorus.

The pair wrote the song alongside Matt McGinn and Andrew Goldstein after bonding with each other when Brown appeared on Legend’s IGTV series Trailer Talk late last year.

“It was amazing me and John [Legend]. John’s such a good guy, great family dude and, we just kind of related on talking about our wives,” Brown explains. “And, we didn’t know if we were writing this song for my record or his record and once we finished it, we both just loved it so much that we both decided to jump on it.”

Kane Brown and John Legend will join forces for the live debut of the song during the upcoming television special, ACM Presents: Our Country. The two-hour special will fill the broadcast slot previously set aside for the 55th Annual ACM Awards and will feature at-home acoustic performances and intimate conversations from country music’s biggest stars.

“Last Time I Say Sorry” is available to stream and download now.
