“So me and Kate have been trying to release a song for like five years now,” Brown previously shared of the duet. “And we kept getting songs coming in, we thought that you know, each of them was the song for us but it never felt right. So my buddy Josh, that’s signed to my publishing deal, he sent me a song called ‘Thank God’ and I listened to it and I fell in love with it. And then kept listening to it and kept listening to it. I was like, this could be a duet. So I asked Kate and Kate fell in love with the song and now it’s one of my favorite songs.”
