“So proud of you!!! It’s ⬆️ @breland,” wrote fellow genre-bender Monica. “LET’S GOOOO!!! 🔥” added singer-songwriter Haley Mae Campbell.
Breland co-wrote “Told You I Could Drink” with Kelley and songwriter Zachary Manno. Following the news, Manno wrote a sweet message to his longtime friend Breland, revealing what it was like working closely with the platinum-selling ensemble.
“I’m truly humbled to have had the opportunity to work on this song with @breland and @ladya,” the newcomer declared. “From writing the song with Breland and @charleskelley to working on the record with the group and with @samsumser, this experience is one I will carry with me forever,” he added.
Breland was quick to fire back with praise and gratitude. He also gave a friendly nod to the East Coast city that made them the musicians they are today.
“Burlington, NJ stand up! So happy to be working with you and for this song to come to life the way we planned it 🙏🏾 You are a FORCE, Zach 💪🏾.”
The up-and-coming artist teased “Told You I Could Drink” with Kelley on his star-studded set Breland & Friends benefit concert in April. Before showcasing the unreleased single, Breland delivered a harmony-infused performance of their 2009 smash hit, “Need you now.”
