It’s been a big week for Phil Collins and “In the Air Tonight”.
First off, Chris Stapleton, Snoop Dogg and Cindy Blackman Santana debuted their version of the classic for this season’s “Monday Night Football” this past Monday… and it’s stellar.
So, there’s that, and Kane Brown just dropped a song that heavily samples “In the Air Tonight” called “I Can Feel It”:
Yes, Kane did get Phil’s permission to do this.
I honestly don’t hate it. It’s fun, radio-friendly, catchy… and has the iconic drum solo. I did think he said “I Saw Your Boobs Bouncing to the Beat” in the first verse, but it was boots, not boobs.
Been cooler if he had said boobs.
Anyhow, this song follows the new trend of sampling Classic Rock staples in Country music. I’m ambivalent about it. I love Classic Rock, and this is a good way to keep bringing the music to a new audience. BUT… my heart will always belong to the originals.
That being said, expect more of this in the future. Also, expect more Kane Brown as he’s working on a new album and announced a tour for next year.
