Country singer Brad Paisley‘s “Same Here” featuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has reached Billboard charts.
“Same Here” enters the all-genre Digital Song Sales chart at No. 7 with 5,000 downloads sold February 24-March 2, according to Luminate. The track also debuts on Country Digital Song Sales at No. 3.
“Same Here” is the first song from Paisley’s new record, Son of the Mountains, which is set to drop later this year via Universal Music Group Nashville. Paisley co-wrote the song with Lee Thomas Miller and Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith.
In the song, Paisley compares the hopes, dreams, and fears of people living in both countries, as he notes that “there’s just no differences.”
“However you talk, whatever you think, from the songs that you sing to the drink that you drink, if you miss your mama and worry ’bout your babies, and love each other like crazy, and want someone to share your hopes and fears, same here,” the lyrics read.
Although the song doesn’t mention Ukraine specifically, the song ends with Paisley and Zelenskyy in conversation, recorded during a video call.
Zelenskyy talks about Ukrainians’ desire for freedom, adding, “There is no distance between our two countries in such values.”
