American Idol winner, Chayce Beckham, and dynamic 21st-century country music star, Lindsay Ell, come together to create a passionately charged track with their first-ever collaboration, “Can’t Do Without Me”. Jordan Walker, Trannie Anderson, and Michael Carter penned the song, while Ross Copperman produces the debut to Beckham’s fresh record label deal.
“‘Baby I’m dyin / To catch that lightnin’ / I’m only fine from your fingertips / I’ve been missin’, wishin’ / To feel your kiss / And your hands all on my skin / It won’t be long till we’re burnin’ up them sheets / And doin’ all those things that you can’t do without me”
With unforgettably steamy lyrics like, “I can’t wait to see that dress spend the night on the floor,” amongst many others, the power of suggestion is real. The song is filled with a fiery passion, “There is such a raw intensity in this song that when A&R brought it to me, I knew I had to cut it—it hit me like lightning,” said Ell in a press release. “Chayce, wow, did he bring it on this song. I had heard so many great things about him but he more than understood the assignment on this one.”
“‘Who’s gonna send them chills runnin’ down your back / Who’s gonna turn you on when the lights go black / You know you’re the only one to do me like that / I’m here goin’ crazy / Come my way baby”
Ell and Beckham alternate verses in the well-deserved bridge that eliminates any form of suggestion and gets straight to the point, powerfully preparing us for the end of the song. They leave us satisfied with something we never knew we needed but now can’t get enough of.
The diversity is not just Ell and Beckham’s music, but their entire careers bring us a collaboration we never expected but flows together flawlessly. Beckham shares on the experience, “Working with Lindsay on this song was a blast. Being in the studio with such a talented artist really took this song to another level for me.”
“Can’t Do Without Me” is sexy, compelling, suggestive, and inviting all at once. Beckham and Ell’s chemistry is unmatchable, and of such a level you could never tell it was their first time working together. The debut of the song, and the success we foresee, is enough to pray that the two give us more as a duo in the future.
