Country newcomer Renee Blair has her eyes set on an unforgettable, fun-filled summer with her smokin’ hot new song, “Heatin’ Up My Summer.” 

The bright country-pop tune opens with synthetic beats, before Blair declares with sass in the opener: “It’s hot as hell, it’s already triple digits / My drink melts before I even sip it.”

“I want you heating up my summer, keeping me up all night / Don’t you dare go make me wonder what kissing you is like / Baby don’t you want to put your hands on my body / Where the sun don’t tan,” Blair sings in the risqué chorus, euphorically dreaming up a fun-filled summer fantasy with her man.

“Summer and fun go hand in hand to me and those who know or have met me know “fun” might as well be my middle name,” the St. Louis, Missouri native shared with Sounds Like Nashville. “I’ve always wanted an up-tempo summer anthem in my repertoire so I called up my go-to guys to help me write this one, Matt McGinn and Jordan Schmidt.”

Good morning world, this is not the “New Music Friday” I imagined months ago when we began planning for the release of this song. I’ve had a heavy heart praying, meditating and debating all week if I should hold back the release. I decided to still stay on schedule. When your heart is hurting, a doctor can’t fix it, but music can. Music has been instrumental in my healing throughout my life and I am a musician. So I’m putting music out into the world, because that is something I CAN do to brighten people’s day when I feel helpless that I can’t save the whole world. These last few months haven’t been easy on any of us and sometimes we just need to close our eyes and take a deep breath. My gift to you is 2min and 46 seconds long. If it is the only chance today you get to hit pause on everything else and sing and dance around like a fool, please enjoy yourself. There are far more important things we need to be doing with the rest of our day and I am here, with you, fighting for change. My goal is to live in a world with MORE PEACE, LESS PAIN. Love you guys ☀️💕

“This song is so fun and flirty!” she admits. “I can only hope it gets as stuck in your head as it does mine!!”

“Heatin’ Up My Summer” is the lead single off Blair’s forthcoming EP, The Ones For Summer, which is set to drop later this summer. Prior to this, the CMT Next Women of Country artist released her three-track EP The Ones To Slow Dance To earlier in March.

Grab your significant other or girlfriends, and get ready to dance to this song all summer long!
