Single Review: “Do I” by Luke Bryan
Love or hate his sometimes awkwardly fitting and unique vocal style, Luke Bryan has defiantly grown a lot since his debut as a writer. Following up his successful debut, Bryan takes a new turn on his newest release by shifting from the party-anthems and country pride songs to a more sentimental one, a love song in fact.
Actually Bryan’s newest single isn’t much of a love song at all, it’s more of a longing for love song really. Bryan takes the character of a man questioning whether or not he still does it for his girl, and asking her if she still loves him and if it’s still work it to try and make it last. With it comes a power and an angst that, up until now, we had yet to actually hear from Bryan considering the material on his debut album was mostly upbeat and pertaining to life rather than love.
There isn’t much wrong with this song other than the fact that it’s pretty generic. it’s nice to hear something different from Luke and see him explore new boundaries, but this single might find it difficult to compete with the many other ballads radio has taken in. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s underserving of the attention. Far from it. In fact, in my personal opinion, this is one of Luke’s best and shows a lot of potential and growth in what he is willing and able to do as an artist.
Final Say: Favorable
