Gabby Barrett Teams Up With Charlie Puth For “I Hope” Remix – Music Mayhem Magazine
Warner Music Nashville’s Gabby Barrett gives new meaning to his single “I Hope”, with a searing collaboration with Atlantic Records / APG’s Charlie puth. The anthemic track, co-written by Barrett with Zachary Kale and Jon Nite, with Puth’s contribution to the new release, and co-produced by Kale and Ross Copperman, is now available on all streaming platforms and digital retailers.
Taking inspiration from the Instagram story of Puth applauding the track, Barrett and Puth have now reimagined the “lightning single in a bottle” (PEOPLE(Rolling stone). Marking Puth’s first adventure in country music, “I Hope” (feat. Charlie Puth) will be included on Barrett’s highly anticipated debut album to be released this year.
“I can’t wait for the fans to hear this! With Charlie being on that track, it changes the perspective of the song, ”Barrett shares. “When I wrote it, I was writing from a woman’s point of view, and so with it, it kind of shows the point of view of men too. That both parties are being cheated and that’s not isn’t just a one-sided thing. “
Said Charlie, “I fell in love with the song when I first heard it, and being able to re-imagine it with Gabby and the writers and producers and take it to a new place, is really exciting.”
