On Thursday evening (Mar. 10), the three artists released their heavy rendition of the Durk and Wallen tune, a song that quickly became a fan-favorite hit and went viral on TikTok upon its initial debut. No Resolve, Drew Jacobs and Nate Good’s cover debuted at the top of the iTunes Rock Songs chart.
Produced by BJ Perry and John Pregler, the “Broadway Girls” metal rendition find the artists taking the already popular tune to a whole new level, bringing a refreshing new energy to the song.
“Now, there’s two things that you’re gonna find out / They don’t love you and they only love you right now / If I was smarter, I’da stayed my ass at home / And leave them Broadway girls alone / Broadway girls, Broadway girls / Them Broadway girls alone / Broadway girls, Broadway girls / Them Broadway girls alone,” the groups sing on the chorus.
In addition to sharing the song, the bands shared a music video, directed by White Knuckle Films’ Paul Raymond, to accompany the metal version of the chart-climbing hit.

On Friday (Dec. 17), Durk and Wallen first dropped the highly-anticipated track, which details a night out in Downtown Nashville with a girl that he met at “Aldeans,” a SoBro bar owned by fellow country star, Jason Aldean.
Sonically, the song is different from anything we’ve ever heard from Wallen. While maintaining his signature deep southern twang, the superstar pushed his musical boundaries further than ever before by incorporating hip-hop elements for a fresh new sound.
Wallen and Lil Durk blend their voices together flawlessly while traded verses throughout the fan-favorite track.
“I met her down at Aldean’s / she said she that saw me walking in about a mile away / Bean had to take her phone and that just took her smile away / she said I’m too drunk and crazy she don’t like the way I dance / I said you don’t have to join in / she said she’d take a chance / I’ve been kind of crazy since it went down / I get kind lost and this is what I found / girls like you just want to take me around, around and around / there’s two things that you’re going to find out / they don’t love you, and they only love you right now / if I was smarter I would’ve stayed my ass at home and leave them Broadway girls alone / Broadway girls alone / Broadway girls alone…”
The collaboration did not come as a surprise to fans, as Lil Durk gave Wallen his stamp of approval by commenting on the chart-topping hitmaker’s teaser clip, released in early October. When the teaser of “Broadway Girls” appeared on social media, the anthemic tune instantly took the internet by storm as fans begged for its release.
