On her current single, Meghan Linsey joined forces with southern rap/hip hop artist, Bubba Sparxxx, to bring fans a flavorful track that combines beautiful melodic vocals and a bit of country swagger. “Try Harder Than That” grew legs and traveled all over SiriusXM The Highway this summer, now impacting radio stations across the nation.
With the growth and progression of the popularity of the song, Meghan and Bubba have now released a music video in tandem. The video shows a sassy Meghan, sitting upon an outdoor, country throne, being introduced to a series of eligible bachelors who clearly have to try harder than that. As her endearingly adorable assistant in the process stands by, Meghan whips out a large pink polaroid camera and snaps photographs of each of her gentlemen suitors. Quite predictably, after each of the men who fall in line fail to impress her, Meghan’s assistant hands her a bouquet of flowers, winning her over and escorting her away.
Of course, Bubba Sparxxx appears in the video as well, joining Meghan in what appears to be a barn, sitting atop bails of hay. As he raps through the bridge of the song, Meghan sits back and offers nods of support, smiles, and occasionally gets a slight groove on. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Meghan discussed the collaboration with Bubba, stating “At least I brought in a ‘real’ rapper. Bubba is the real deal: a great artist and a smart business man. If I had done the rap myself, I would have been more worried.”
