Jason Aldean released his newest single today, “Blame It On You,” immediately following his 24th career chart-topper and last week’s No. One song at Country radio.
“Blame It On You,” written by Aldean’s bandmates Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy alongside John Edwards, Michael Tyler and Brian White, reflects on “the difficulty in saying goodbye” (Billboard). Showing Aldean going round-for-round with each step of a brokenhearted journey, this “solid breakup song” (Entertainment Tonight) has been a fan favorite since the release of his sixth consecutive No. One selling album 9.
“When I hear songs like ‘Blame It On You’ that have more of a pop side but are still killer…I always want to see what we can do with it. The demo had this really cool auto-tune in the background that I immediately knew we needed to leave in there,” Aldean said. “We ended up cranking it up and now it almost sounds like there’s another singer on the song. It’s just really cool. I’ve always said that just because it’s a slower song, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be edgy. You can still have some attitude to it.”
