Bon Jovi & Jennifer Nettles Share Hopeful Quarantine Duet ‘Do What You Can’

Bon Jovi unveiled their country-tinged collaboration with Jennifer Nettles, “Do What You Can,” on Friday (Sept. 18).

The upbeat duet finds Jon Bon Jovi and the Sugarland singer looking back on how people have come together and lent a helping hand during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Although I’ll keep my social distance/ What this world needs is a hug/ Until we find the vaccination/ There’s no substitute for love/ So love yourself and love your family/ Love your neighbor and your friend/ Ain’t it time we loved a stranger/ But just a friend you ain’t met yet,” the pair preach on the song’s bridge before crashing drums transition into the final chorus.

Written in quarantine, “Do What You Can” marks the second eleventh hour addition to Bon Jovi’s upcoming album Bon Jovi: 2020, following George Floyd protest anthem “American Reckoning.” Originally scheduled for release on May 15, the rock band’s fifteenth studio set was postponed due to the outbreak of the global health crisis.

Featuring fellow singles “Unbroken” and “Limitless,” Bon Jovi: 2020 is now set to hit retailers on Oct. 2 via Big Machine Label Group, nearly a full year after the lead single was unveiled as a charity offering for the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation. (A new version of “Unbroken” was also re-released in March to raise further money for Prince Harry’s Invictus Games Foundation honoring wounded soldiers.)
