Breland dropped the music video to his new Shania Twain-inspired song, and for him, it marks the start of summer: “She’s an ice cold natty/ She drink like her daddy/ And when she gets the night off she dance her heels off/ She southern and sassy/ A barbecue baddie/ But she can put a tire on and I want to take her down/ Don’t need a filter the way that she built it’ll blow your mind/ She’s an actual, natural, back it up country girl/ Natural/ Country girl.”

“Natural” released earlier this week, when Breland appeared on TODAY With Hoda & Jenna and announced that his long-awaited debut album would release later this year. The “My Truck” artist excitedly announced that Cross Country is set to release on September 9. He said on Instagram: “I’m so excited for y’all to hear what I’ve been working on for the past two and half years.”

Now that Breland’s latest music video has arrived, that’s the sign that “summer has officially begun,” he announced on Instagram, along with a 26-second clip from the video. Breland also thanked everyone who worked on the project, including “all the amazing women that stood out in 100 degree Austin TX humidity…I’m so grateful!”

“It’s awesome seeing the resurgence of 90s Country and its influence on today’s new music,” Breland said in a statement on Thursday (June 16). “I’ve noticed a lot of people have been taking inspiration from a lot of male artists, so I wanted to sample one of Country music’s most influential females, Shania Twain! Fusing her empowering ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman!’ with my lyrics for ‘Natural’ resulted in an ode to women in their natural elements and loving what God gave them just as they are.” 

“Natural” is described as a “magnetic” song that nods to one of Twain's most iconic songs, featuring an interpolation of “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!,” according to a press release earlier this week. It follows other fan-favorite singles like “My Truck,” which later got a remixed version with Sam Hunt, and other collaborations, like “Throw It Back” featuring Keith Urban, “Praise The Lord” featuring Thomas Rhett, and “Cross Country” with Mickey Guyton.
