Album BackgroundEdit

Kane Brown wrote most of the songs on the album himself. In advance of the album, the tracks "Homesick", "Short Skirt Weather", and "Good as You" were released digitally.

"Lose It" was the album's first radio single. Dann Huff (who co-produced his debut album) is also the producer on Experiment. Brown said that he wanted to introduce new sounds on the album and introduce "more energy" to his style.

"American Bad Dream" is a song that Brown wrote about the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. He said that he took inspiration from his grandmother, who was a police detective.

Chart PerformanceEdit

"Experiment" debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 with 124,000 album-equivalent units (including 105,000 pure album sales), making it Brown's first US number-one album, and the third country album to top the chart in 2018.

As of July of 2019, the album has sold 217,300 copies.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Giving the album 4 out of 5 stars, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic found Brown's singing and songwriting superior to his 2016 debut album, while also noting influences of contemporary R&B and arena rock.

Rolling Stone reviewer Maura Johnston rated it 3.5 out of 5 stars, highlighting the song "American Bad Dream" as the "emotional center" while also noting the variety of musical influences and the "confidence" in Brown's delivery.
