Blake Shelton broke the silence on the reaction and called on critics to choose ‘fight’ after complaints about his new song ‘Minimum Wage’ surfaced.
The single, which was officially released on Friday, made headlines on NBC’s New Year’s Eve, especially after the country’s coroner’s song.
The song includes lyrics like “You can make six packs on the carpet / taste like a million dollar bill / You can make a one-bedroom apartment feel like a house on a hill” and the girl looks at you, at me. Seeing that one way / one man can feel rich at the minimum wage. “
The singer-songwriter responded to the critics: “If it’s offensive to you, we’ll have to agree.
The singer added: “They just want to hear what they want to hear, and they want to choose the fight. No matter what your intention is, no matter how true it is, they want it to be something like that Worry about what they can do so they can go on social media and try to get a title. “
“I feel like these days, there are a lot of people out there who don’t want to know the truth,” he added.
Blake Shelton, who initially refrained from criticizing, opened up about his new single in an interview with CMT on Thursday, saying that anyone who dealt with the lyrics had not heard the song and did not. Just read the melodies.
