The last hit single from legendary Martina McBride, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” came out five years ago and nailed the No. 4 position on the U.S. Country chart. The album that followed didn’t make quite as big of a stir, so where does that leave her newest single?
Just launched on February 26th, 2016, “Reckless” brings on a new more-upbeat pop sound combined with McBride’s magical vocals and will definitely make it on any fan’s playlist.
Early public reception appears to be great, with people saying that it is a great reminder of why she has become such an iconic musician and admitting that this brings them back to earlier decades in music, but with a refreshingly new flare. Some even admitted that they aren’t a fan of country music, but this song is “exceptional”.
The song is a vivid track with a lot of chorus. Die-hard Martina fans will instantly hear that there’s something noticeably different about it. She strikes the first notes with powerful emphasis that she usually brings out later in her music. The song is a light, upbeat and springy track that issues a clear message: “I know I’m reckless, you must be reckless too.”
It reveals the foolish, reckless vulnerability that comes when you’re falling in love.
This is the first project McBride has worked on while signed to NASH Icon and the first with producer Nathan Chapman, whose influence is clear with the first listen of this single. It’s a pumped-up, poppy single, with reverberating vocals, but still retains a dose of her country side as you can hear at the ends of many phrasings.
