The wait for the Kane Brown and Marshmello collaboration is over.

Available everywhere now, “One Thing Right” pairs the superstars together for the first time ever. The song was written by Brown, Marshmello, Jesse Frasure, Josh Hoge and Matthew McGinn and is an autobiographical tune for Brown.

“It just…tells you everything that I’ve done wrong growing up and it’s saying that the one thing I did get right was you, talking about my wife,” the Georgia native previously told Billboard.

The cross-genre collab came about after Brown and Marshmello first connected at the 2018 American Music Awards. After Brown took home three trophies (Favorite Male Artist – Country, Favorite Album – Country, and Favorite Song – Country for “Heaven”), Marshmellow, who took home the AMA for Best Electronic Dance Artist that same night, contacted Brown to congratulate him on his big wins.

“Marshmello had reached out to say congratulations while I was at the AMAs,” Brown shared. “I sent him the song and he ended up being really passionate about it, and said he wanted to even make it a single, so we ended up working on it together. I am a huge Marshmello fan and think he is an incredible artist in his space, so I am thrilled to be able to get to collaborate with him on this. It’s amazing seeing a song you wrote come to life like that.”

Marshmello and Brown will bring “One Thing Right” to Good Morning America‘s Summer Concert Series on August 30.
