Not to overlook Darius Rucker’s glorious contributions, but Kane Brown is the most successful African American in country music right now. And he’s not even one hunid percent African American. But it is all good from my perspective, because I feel that America is so hung up on race that there is actually a big discussion on what ethnicities can do what music. Enough. As I have stated, black folks have been doing county music, and will continue to do so, but as far as the mainstream is concerned, Kane Brown is the man who is breaking the most barriers in country music. I feel he has executed this surgical move because he ties his music to both pop and rnb wherever he can, and country almost takes a backdrop. I have been happy though to recognize that his rising career trajectory has been met with kindness from all communities, because I would hate for it to be the other way.
Released in 2018, 12 tracks, 39 min
I’m really not sure why Kane Brown called his second album Experiment. It is such boring music from the get go, and I hate to be negative about a review. But I refuse to do two things, which are (is?) to act like I haven’t heard better country (which I have) and that this album is a progression from his first album (self titled). Sophomore albums ate supposed to be better than this – not just country pop that anybody on their cousin can whip up. Honestly, I am beginning to doubt the overnight success of this gentleman. The only one that I really felt (whole body rocking to the music) was the little known “American Bad Dream.” That is a song you can feel.
Since the late-noughties & early-teens, Country Pop artists have experienced an impressive amount of mainstream appeal thanks to a push towards more generic Pop ideals, masculine sensitivity & an increased focus on faux-feministic romanticism, but as time progressed this quickly transitioned to a heavy period of repetition, insincerity & streamlined production for the purpose of achieving higher record sales without concern for artistic integrity – When Kane Brown hit the scene, he followed many of these formulas, but he also injected a surprising amount of morose, Emo-like narrative aspects into his songs; This allowed him to rocket to the forefront of mainstream appeal by seeming like the alternative for modern listeners, a more caring individual whose words felt refreshing, but the question still remained as to whether he could keep it up – With Experiment, he refined his sound to a considerable degree, although the pull of studio-mandated mediocrity unfortunately plagues much of the album.
