“I felt the second we wrote this song it was special,” says Luke. “I loved every aspect of it from the melody to the lyric. So fun to enjoy this one with Ross and Jon and I’ve been wanting to have a big hit with Hillary for years! This is an uncertain time for our country and I’m thankful to the fans who can find an escape with music. Let’s continue to look out for each other!
“What She Wants Tonight,” Luke’s previous #1 single “Knockin’ Boots,” and current digital smash and fan-favorite “One Margarita” are all from Luke’s forth coming seventh studio album BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE.’
