Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson released their fiery new duet, which is guaranteed to become your new favorite song.

On Thursday (Nov. 18), the GRAMMY-nominated country superstar and fast-rising star joined forces for a duet called “Never Say Never.”

With an irresistible melody that begs for radio airplay and catchy song lyrics, “Never Say Never” will quickly become a fan-favorite hit. The just-released song finds the two singers trading verses before flawlessly blending their unique vocals together during the chorus, making for the perfect pairing.

“I never say never with you, I end up together with you / It’s Hell, and it’s Heaven with you, baby / Anything’s possible, the highs are unstoppable / It’s so uncontrollable, it’s crazy / We say we won’t, and then we do / You’re all I want, I never say never with you, yeah / I never say never with you,” Swindell and Wilson sing during the chorus.

The arena-ready anthem, which is destined to prompt massive singalongs during live shows, is bound to become Swindell and Wilson’s next chart-topping hit.

“I wrote ‘Never Say Never’ with Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill in 2018 about a relationship you just can’t stay away from,” Swindell said. “I have been a fan of Lainey Wilson’s for a while now and what she brings to this song is everything it needed. So glad it’s finally out!”
 
“’Things a Man Oughta Know’ was such an incredible ride, I can’t wait to get this next song out into the world and see where it leads,” Wilson added. “It makes the journey that much more special that I get to share it with a friend this time around—I’m looking forward to playing it for y’all, and I’m sure Cole is too!” 

Listen to Swindell and Wilson’s duet below.

Co-written by Swindell alongside Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill, “Never Say Never” follows Swindell’s back-to-back No. 1 hits “Love You Too Late” and “Single Saturday Night.”

The song also marks the follow-up to Wilson’s first-ever No. 1 single, “Things A Man Oughta Know.”

Swindell and Wilson first teased the song throughout social media earlier this week via a video.

The clip found the two chart-topping singers seated at a table having a comical conversation, where they asked each other questions, all which included the word “never” within their answers.

“I’ve been waiting a long time for this one,” Swindell captioned the clip, Wilson adding, “Cole Swindell, I think we got us a good one.”

“Hey Cole, I have a flat tire. Want to go out there and help me change it?” Wilson asked Swindell. 

“I’d never have to. We all know you know how to do that,” responded Swindell.

The “Single Saturday Night” then asked Wilson if she would trade hats with him, “No, never. Sorry about it.”

As the clip continued, Wilson asked if she could buy Swindell bell-bottoms and Swindell asked if he could get her a White Claw, both of which were “never” answers. However, the conversation ended with Wilson asking Swindell a question that they both agreed on. “Cole, whatcha say we do a song together?” Wilson asked. 

“I’d Never Say Never with you,” Swindell replied, referencing the song’s lyrics.
