The genre-blending “Got What I Got” serves as latest chart topper
Jason Aldean charts his 24th career No. 1 single as his latest hit, “Got What I Got,” takes the top spot on both Mediabase/Country Aircheck Singles chart and Billboard’s Country Airplay this week. The R&B infused track from his sixth consecutive No. 1 selling album 9 (Macon Music/Broken Bow Records) “embraces pop-leaning production and country storytelling” (USA Today) and is a “perfect example that Aldean has no problem diverting from his signature anthems,” (Entertainment Tonight).
“Country radio has always given us the chance to bend the rules a little, and that has always meant a lot to me,” Aldean shares. “It’s especially cool for them to have my back right now while we can’t be out on the road getting fans music that way. We are missing it bad and can’t wait to get back on stage.”
Earlier this summer, Aldean shared the social distant music video for the track during CMA Summer Stay-Cay special, which was filmed on the Gulf Coast during the COVID-19 quarantine. The video highlights Aldean’s gratitude for his wife, Brittany, and children while sharing snippets of memories from their personal life.
After almost 15 years at the top of his format, three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Aldean has seen trends come and go. He’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, like a country-music Columbus making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul — most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all eight of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified gold or platinum by the RIAA, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 18 million albums sold as well as 23 radio chart-toppers.
