After a successful run of her debut album REAL TO ME: THE WAY I FEEL, country riser Callista Clark drops the deluxe edition of the project! The expanded set includes four new versions of previously shared tracks, featuring a duet with Grammy nominated country megastar Jimmie Allen, “Wish You Wouldn’t.”

Clark and Allen provide a fresh take on the standout track, as the pair harmonize with lyrics, “You’ll pick up your phone/ Thinkin’ you should call me up/ ‘Cause you’re wonderin’ how I’ve been (No, no)/ And you’ll say you’re still in love/ Oh, I wish you wouldn’t (I wish you wouldn’t)/ ‘Cause you know you shouldn’t (You know you shouldn’t)/ You’ll say you couldn’t help it, but you’re really bein’ selfish/ So I wish you wouldn’t (I wish you wouldn’t).”

The two joined forces to offer fans an accompanying music video for the post-break up track. Watch the official video for “Wish You Wouldn’t” featuring Jimmie Allen below.

“Having Jimmie Allen on ‘Wish You Wouldn’t’ is a literal dream come true,” gushed Callista. “He was the only person I wanted for that song — he brings such an effortlessly smooth charm to the song. I’m still ecstatic he said ‘yes’!”

“I love diving into all types of projects and experimenting with different artists so I was honored Callista asked me to jump on this song—I’m grateful to be a part of her journey,” added Allen. “We met out on the road years ago and she has become like a little sister to me. She is an incredible talent and I loved getting to play with the variation between the fast and slow vocals—it’s a fun song to sing.”
