Kacey Musgraves unleashed a new collaboration and she’s warning fans: “Listen with caution.”

Musgraves, who is nominated in two 2022 Video Music Awards categories, teamed up with fellow singer-songwriters Cuco and Adriel Favela to debut “Sitting in the Corner,” a song on Cuco’s second studio album that Musgraves describes as “a highly flammable TEXMEX bop,” the award-winning country artist wrote in her Instagram caption. “Thank you for having me on this song [Cuco].” Switching between English and Spanish, the three artists sing:

“Now I’m sitting in the corner where you’d lay down on your pillow and you’d see me/ We would dance and we would sing on New Year’s Eve the flashing lights decorate the ceiling/ Can’t ignore and can’t avoid that it was there we had it all it was the feeling/ I try to grab on to the clock I can’t accept that time is passing and it’s fleeing.”

The song is one of 12 tracks — and one of three collaborations — on Cuco’s new album, Fantasy Gateway. Other artists teaming up with Cuco on the project include Bratty (“Fin Del Mundo”) and DannyLux (“Decir Adios”). Cuco gushed in the comments of Musgraves’ Instagram post sharing the song: “You’re amazing , forever grateful for you!!” Listen to the song here:
