Dylan Scott finally dropped the powerful country anthem that he recorded with Jimmie Allen, nodding to the things that make them who they are because it’s “In Our Blood.” The two country artists also marked the release with the official music video premiere on Friday (May 6).
“This song was sent to me, ‘In Our Blood,’ and I immediately fell in love with it, and I knew it was a special song,” Scott said in a behind-the-scenes video. “I knew it was a powerful song, so I was just thinking, ‘how can we make this more of a powerful song,’ and I feel like with adding Jimmie to that…this was the perfect opportunity to do something really special.”
Allen, of course, was on board. He added: “No matter where you’re from, we got a lot in common. We all bleed red, we all wanna love, we all wanna be successful. So, that’s what I love about this song. It’s a beautiful song.”
The two country artists first started teasing the collaboration in April, when they shared a photo captioned: “We cookin’ something up! Not sure if y’all are ready!” Soon afterward, Scott revealed more details, posting the single artwork and confirming: “Told y’all we were cookin’ something up. [‘In Our Blood’] drops 5/6. Can’t wait for y’all to hear it.” Scott’s upcoming album, Livin’ My Best Life, is set to release August 5. Allen also has a new album, Tulip Drive, debuting on June 24.
