“I start to think you’re heaven-sent, God must be pickin’ favorites. How are you this perfect? Guess I’m not used to gentleman and I know it’s just the basics but I love the way that you pick me up, hold the door, say I’m yours, and then hold my hand in public. Drive an hour, buy me flowers, kiss me now ‘cause you know I f****** love it. Fix my hair, the little things that show you care. No, I’m not used to such a gentleman.” – lyrics

“Gentleman” is a guitar-driven homage to the men in the world who still know how to open car doors for their dates. Lyrically Mckenna Grace articulately praises the virtues of ‘gentlemen’ who are willing to, “Pick me up, hold the door, say I’m yours…drive an hour, buy me flowers.”

The accompanying music video (co-directed by Grace and Gus Black), finds the artist taking a decidedly playful turn, with a nod to the ultimate gentleman in her life, her dog Gizmo. The video premiered globally on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop, Nick Music, and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards.

“I wrote this song about the first time a person made me feel like I was worth their time and effort in a romantic relationship. I was kind of used to accepting the bare minimum (because that’s all I knew) and I didn’t feel like I was worth a lot in a relationship. It was the first time I realized ‘Oh! This is how it should be, and THIS is how I want to be treated! People ARE out there who care! I feel like being treated with kindness and respect SHOULD be the basics, but unfortunately are not for a lot of people, so I wanted to write a song about it. This song is an acknowledgment of Gentlemen. They are out there, they do exist…and you will find one someday!” – Mckenna Grace explained

An ideal anthem for anyone who wants to raise their love game expectations, “Gentleman” marks the latest in a string of critically praised tracks from the 100M+ streaming Mckenna Grace, including January 2024 released autobiographical, “Natalie,” which marked Grace’s first solo single since release 2023’s acclaimed 5-track sophomore mini EP, “Autumn Leaves.” The EP – followed on the heels of  Mckenna’s multi-million streaming debut, 2023’s Bittersweet Sixteen – highlighted by passionately self-assured singles, “Ugly Crier,” “Checkered Vans,” “Post Party Trauma,” and “Buzzkill Baby,” the latter of which Grace performed live on the Kelly Clarkson Show.
