Kenny Chesney and P!nk’s “Setting The World on Fire” collaboration is the musical epitome of being alive and in love— a perfect song for the long days and hot nights of summer. With the release of his Cosmic Hallelujah moving to October 28th, the country superstar wanted a tune that reflects the joy of the season.
“This time of year, you really want a song that feels like the best part of the summer,” Chesney explained. “You want something that grabs you and puts you right in the moment. Like ‘Somewhere With You,’ the listener is so caught up in what’s happening – you’re there; I think when people hear P!NK and I together, people will get that same sense of the moment.”
Upon its release on Friday, “Setting The World on Fire” shot to the top of the iTunes All-Genre chart, as well as topping several other sales charts. With barely three days, the uplifting song about the moment when love takes over also bows on the Mediabase chart at No. 32 and on the Billboard chart at No. 22.
“I can’t wait for this to get a little older, so we can put it in the show,” Chesney – in the midst of his Spread The Love 2016 Tour, including 14 major stadiums – stated. “This is one of those songs that’s going to be wild live. I can’t wait to hear the fans sing it back to me.”
We love the dynamic chemistry between these two very different vocalists. Share this with other Kenny Chesney fans!
