Toronto-based, multi-platinum artist and producer Elijah Woods shares his new track, “last girl (ft. MacKenzie Porter),” out on all streaming platforms today.
"last girl” was originally released as part of Wood’s bright orange everglow EP earlier this year. For the duet version, woods tapped rising singer-songwriter MacKenzie Porter to add her sweet country touch to the love song. It’s a truly stunning cross-genre love song that will appeal to both their audiences and beyond.
Woods elaborates on how the collaboration came together: “As soon as I heard MacKenzie’s vocals, I knew she would be perfect for ‘last girl.’ It was written with a blend of easy-listening pop and country undertones. The song lends itself perfectly to a duet, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!”
“I’m such a fan of Elijah’s music and when he brought me this song, I knew I had to be a part of it,” MacKenzie adds. “It’s the perfect mix of honest country lyricism and dreamy-pop. I’m so excited to collaborate with another incredible Canadian artist.”
