"Work"

With Kane Brown’s marriage to Katelyn Jae occurring right around the time his new record ‘Experiment’ came out, it’s only natural some of the songs included would focus on what it’s like to be in such a strong, committed relationship, Brown learning to navigate the waters to make sure he doesn’t end up drinking alone at a saloon to drown his sorrows like so many of his songs have him doing. Whereas “Good As You” focused on his intentions to give his all to his wife, literally shooting its music video at their wedding as he talked about all the ways he wants to live up to her expectations, “Work” takes a look at the inevitability of friction between the two of them as they grow old together, acknowledging that no relationship is without its dark days where you just want to give up – The general storyline talks about preparing for the storms that may begin to brew in the future, making use of the sayings “don’t go to bed angry” & “always kiss goodnight” to set themselves up for success by promising to squash whatever beef they have as soon as it comes to fruition, believing that proactivity is the only way they’ll be able to control the outcome of their relationship & defend themselves from escalating to potentially life-altering disagreements that would threaten the very foundations of their marriage; Even so, Brown admits that this may not be enough to keep things on an even keel, noting that “there’s gonna be a couple fights just to see who’s wrong or right” but that “if it’s love, we both know what it’s gonna take…work,” hoping they’ll both be mature enough to know that a simple fight isn’t grounds enough for a breakup & that peace will only come with active engagement with one-another, putting in the work to stay together & never giving up on what they have.
It’s surprising to see Brown go from such generic storylines of sadness in “Baby Come Back To Me” & betrayal in “It Ain’t You It’s Me” to suddenly having a level head in this tune, but this newfound maturity he’s discovered from Jae has done absolute wonders to his songwriting, giving audiences much more heart & soul than he’s ever put into a song before, both in his narratives & in his musical performance. This is shown directly in the instrumentation for “Work,” Brown utilizing a soothing finger-picked lead melody for this song that delicately delivers soft tones to the listener’s ears, backed by a wonderfully achy slide guitar, synth strings for atmospheric warmth & a serene percussion vibe full of lightly-malleted drums with a somewhat tribal rhythm that beats like a healthy heart, creating a soundscape of pure love & adoration that feels hopeful, desperately trying to survive the storm to protect the passion he & his wife share; Even Brown’s vocals step up their game here, his low-tones embracing you with a comforting melody before shooting up to brilliantly resonant high notes during the choruses, making sure to keep himself in a relatively speak-singing decibel range to treat this song more as a conversation than an bombastic performance, helping to create an intimate environment of love for the listener to sink into, Brown’s drive & desire to keep the flame alive burning brightly inside – Many of the tracks on ‘Experiment’ give delightfully upbeat performances that show a great evolution in Brown’s style, but “Work” stands out above the rest as his most meaningful performance of the bunch, a spectacular ballad that stretches his talents as a showman & asks him to lay his heart out on the line like he hasn’t shown anywhere else on the album.

Lyrics

"Work"

[Verse 1]
They say don't go to bed angry
They say always kiss goodnight
Maybe there's somethin' to it
I don't know, but what if they're right
If we're gonna be forever
If it's gonna be just us
If we're gonna ride together
Turn two to one

[Chorus]
Gotta make it work, I'm not sayin' it's easy
Sometimes we get hurt, I promise I ain't leavin', yeah
There's gonna be a couple fights
Just to see who's wrong or right
If it's love we both know what it's gonna take
Work
Yeah, we can make it work

[Verse 2]
I've seen the things that happen
One side self destructs
I've seen the beautiful madness
When things erupt

[Chorus]
Gotta make it work, I'm not sayin' it's easy
Sometimes we get hurt, I promise I ain't leavin', yeah
There's gonna be a couple fights
Just to see who's wrong or right
If it's love we both know what it's gonna take
Work
Yeah, we can make it work

[Bridge]
Can't always be there for ya
Can't always be by your side
But I promise that I'm gon' love ya
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die

[Chorus]
Gotta make it work, I'm not sayin' it's easy
Sometimes we get hurt, I promise I ain't leavin', yeah
There's gonna be a couple fights
Just to see who's wrong or right
If it's love we both know what it's gonna take
Work
Oh no, yeah, we can make it work
