Colbie Caillat is saying goodbye to those laidback beach vibes and hello to the dancefloor with her new single “Hold On.”
With help from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who wrote and produced the track, the “Bubbly” singer is channeling her inner diva. There’s no acoustic guitar to be heard, just a pounding drum beat and layers and layers of Caillat’s voice, acting as both the devil and the angel on her shoulder as she figures out what to do about her new crush.
“I like that when I sing it, I feel rad — ‘rad’ is my word right now,” she told USA Today about the new track. “The production that Ryan used, the second the music comes on, I get in the moment. It makes me come alive, and it makes me want to perform.”
