Ansel Elgort (yes, the “Divergent” saga actor is now a singer) previewed this song in concert 8 months ago, and now, finally, he releases the studio version of what it’s confirmed to be his next single, “You Can Count On Me” featuring rapper Logic. And not only Ansel sings a lot in this song, and sings really well, he also produced the track! (Quadruple threat alert: he sings, he writes, he produces, and he acts). 23-year-old Ansel is signed to Island Records and has plans to drop an EP or full-length album later this year.
A track for a track is the name of the musical game, and since actor-turned-producer-singer Ansel Elgort featured on Logic’s album Everybody in the song “Killing Spree,” we should have known there’d be an Ansel Elgort single coming with verses from the rising MC,“You Can Count On Me” is a bare-bones pop ballad about making love work through hard times and good. It’s cute on the piano with a future bass-inspired hook. Elgort’s voice is deep and throaty, vulnerable in its performance while Logic comes in with straightforward swagger. It’s out everywhere on Island Records today (June 2).
