“Memory” Story Behind the Song – Audio
KANE BROWN: What’s up guys? I’m Kane Brown.

blackbear: And I’m blackbear and we’re gonna tell you more about our song memory. This song kind of started out, I was on a beach riding trip with Andrew Goldstein. As Kane knows he worked with the Andrew Goldstein before on a John Legend record. And it was I was just beach vibes and I just wrote this record out and I sent it to Kane and we finally got together in the studio and made it. It’s incredible.

KANE BROWN: Yeah, I just connected with the song. Just because I feel like it’s hard for me to be able to connect with a lot of people in my personal life. And a lot of times I feel like I’m alone. So I just really connected with songs but I could I could jump on

blackbear: Yeah.

ABOUT Kane Brown
Global entertainer Kane Brown, recognized by the New York Times as “one of Nashville’s most promising young stars and most flexible” and TIME as “one of 31 people who are changing The South,” released his 2X Platinum self-titled debut album in December 2016. Since then, Brown has earned 16 RIAA certification awards, including 6X Platinum No. 1 hits “Heaven” and “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina, respectively the third and seventh most-streamed country songs of all time. Additionally, his Platinum-certified sophomore album Experiment yielded the 2X Platinum “Lose It,” “Good As You” and “Homesick” which became back-to-back airplay chart-toppers. 5X American Music Award winner Brown dropped Mixtape Vol. 1 last August, achieving the best country EP debut of 2020 and highest first-week on-demand stream total since Sam Hunt’s SOUTHSIDE album debut. The EP was nominated for Album of the Year for the 2021 ACM Awards, the first time a Black artist has received a nomination in this category. Kane Brown’s Mixtape Vol. 1 includes the powerful “Worldwide Beautiful” which was originally released on June 4 in 2020, two days after the music industry’s sector-wide Blackout Tuesday. In April, Brown celebrated a 2021 ACM Award win for Video of the Year for this clip, the first time a Black solo artist has won this trophy. Last fall, Brown held a “Worldwide Beautiful” virtual Town Hall for 100 Boys & Girls Club members hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier. After watching the music video, all participated in a candid Q&A about diversity, equality and the challenges and opportunities of the next generation. Brown, who has worked with the Boys & Girls Club for the past four years, was surprised during the Town Hall with an invitation to become an honorary Club member for life.

ABOUT blackbear
Since first crashing onto the scene in the mid-2010s, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter/producer blackbear has continually turned heads and defied all expectations, effortlessly mixing his satirical humor and refreshingly forthright semantics with deeply heartfelt emotion. Delivering an outrageously catchy hybrid of pop and hip-hop and alt-R&B, the L.A.-based artist has put out five studio albums in the last six years alone, including 2019’s magnum opus ANONYMOUS, and 2020’s gold-certified everything means nothing (a #15 hit on the Billboard 200 Chart.)Hyper-creative and massively prolific, he’s also collaborated with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Linkin Park, and brought his top-notch songwriting skills to Justin Bieber’s six-times-platinum single “Boyfriend.” And in his unflinching honesty about his own demons and depression, blackbear creates a powerful sense of solidarity—ultimately moving forward with his longtime mission of “inspiring everyone to be more unapologetic about who they are.”

In August 2019, blackbear dropped his biggest smash to date with the 3x-platinum hit “hot girl bummer,” – the anthem reached #2 at Top 40 radio, landed at #11 on Billboard’s 2020 Year-End Top 40 Radio chart, and #26 on the Year-End Hot 100 Chart. blackbear’s hitmaker prowess continues to be showcased through numerous recent collaborations, most notably featuring on Machine Gun Kelly’s “my ex’s best friend” and All Time Low’s “Monsters,” both of which spent multiple weeks #1 at radio. He kicked off 2021 garnering nominations for two 2021 Billboard Music Awards (Top Rock Song x2), and two 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards for “Best New Pop Artist” and “Alternative Rock Song of the Year.” blackbear returned with his brand-new single “u love u” featuring Tate McRae on June 4, 2021, as he continues to tease the release of his forthcoming EP, misery lake.
