Luke Bryan brought his latest single, “One Margarita,” to life on the American Idol finale on Sunday (May 17).

Getting creative with his performance, Bryan performed the summer-ready track virtually with his band in front of a green screen that showcased his music video.

“It’s a drinking song Ryan, a lot of people are drinking out there during the pandemic,” Bryan joked to Idol host Ryan Seacrest before his performance.

“One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot/ Don’t worry ’bout tomorrow/ Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin’ dock/ When that sun lays down, we’ll be on our way/ One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say/ Hey Señorita, don’t you think we need a salt and a Buffett song?/ One margarita, two margarita, three margarita/ We’ll be gone,” the superstar sings throughout the chorus.

“One Margarita” was co-written by Michael Carter, Matt Dragstrem and Josh Thompson and follows the release of his single “Knockin’ Boots,” “What She Wants Tonight” and “Born Here, Live Here, Die Here.”

The song comes from his forthcoming new album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here.
