Ashlie Amber Cruises Around In Her ‘Chevy’ (Review)
Ashlie Amber turns more than a few heads with her shimmering new song. “Chevy,” co-written by Oren Yoel, Anjulie Persaud, and John Thomas Harding, revs its engines with a thick breakdown and sticky backbeat. It’s perfectly primed for mainstream country radio, sitting alongside the work of Thomas Rhett and Sam Hunt. “All these boys want to get in my Chevy,” she sings
“Chevy,” produced by Ilya Toshinskiy (Jelly Roll, Taylor Swift), is a seductive little number with an addicting, unforgettable groove. It’s guaranteed to get the heart racing. “Throw your blue jeans out on an old back road / Got my heartbeat jumping,” she sings, “and away we go / Got the stick shift movin’ just the way you like / Burning up for your love, and I can’t stop.’
While Amber didn’t have a hand in writing the song, it fits her voice and aesthetic like a glove. “It has elements of country, pop, and hip-hop all forged into this incredible vibe. To me, it’s the perfect evolution of where the future of country/pop is heading,” she says in a press statement. “It’s fun to be confident, and it’s fun to feel sexy, but it’s even more fun to find the right person that makes you feel like no other love interest matters. Sure, it’s flattering when you have a lot of people who want to pop your clutch, but it’s so much more fulfilling knowing that this Chevy only has room for one.”
