Things will ‘Never Be the Same’ for Kane Brown now that he teamed up with pop singer Camila Cabello for a vocal feature on her current single.
The track, “Never Be the Same,” has been blowing up on Top 40 radio for the past couple months now, and Cabello wanted to spice the sound up with a flair of country music. After getting advice from an industry professional about how the song sounded like something from country radio, she knew she needed someone like Brown to add that twang into the mix.

“when we were writing this song, @frankdukes kept telling me ‘the melodies you’re doing make it feel like this could be a country song’ !!!!! ever since we finished writing it i always thought this could be reimagined with a country artist, and i heard Kane brown’s song ‘What Ifs’ one day and freaked out!!!! I was like he’s the PERFECT artist to do this with…. i’m so so excited about this and hope you love it as much as i do and thank you Kane for your magical voice, this song tells a different story now @kanebrown_music,” Cabello wrote in a tweet.
Although some fans of Cabello may look at the collaboration as somewhat of a stretch from her sound, she actually cut a track called “Consequences” co-written by Nashville songwriters Emily Weisband and Nicolle Galyon. She also sent a shout out to her followers after catching wind that Keith Urban and Kelsea Ballerini had covered one of her songs during their Graffiti U tour announcement concert, writing that the moment was magical.
Brown himself isn’t shy when it comes to collaborations, as his massive hit with Lauren Alaina, “What Ifs,” gained huge radio play and the ACM nomination for Vocal Event of the Year.
Cabello and Brown’s version of “Never Be the Same,” is available now.
