Country-Disco Artist Alyssa Scott Releases Summer Anthem "You" Out Now
As Alyssa puts it, "You" is a mixture of "dreamy country disco happiness," and that is clear as you can’t help but smile while listening to this upbeat tune. This song is all about the feeling of unfiltered happiness, perfect for summer. With a dance-pop groove that feels inspired by Dua Lipa crossed with the country edge of Kacey Musgraves and Shania Twain, Scott takes us to a cowgirl disco party.
Right from the start, the instruments fade in gently, giving an ethereal vibe. Then, Scott draws listeners in with her unique vocals, full of personality. The syncopation in her line, "We can blow this joint wherever we want to go," adds a playful voice while leaving listeners on the edge of their seats for what is next. The music swells into the chorus with the iconic exclamation, "You!"
