"The Git Up" has been aided by a viral dance challenge on TikTok and YouTube, with Brown himself having posted a tutorial in May. The 34-year-old Atlanta native previously produced songs for pop/hip-hop acts including Chris Brown, Fergie and Pitbull.
Brown wrote and produced "The Git Up" himself. "When I got done [writing it] and danced through the whole thing, I was like, 'Man, I gotta get in shape!'" he recently told Billboard. "This is a great workout song. I think I done dropped five pounds already."
More seriously, he added, "'The Git Up' is dedicated to my grandmother telling us every morning, 'Get up. Go do something productive in the world.' It's about messages [in] my music; bigger than anything is chasing your purpose in life."
Notably, "The Git Up" completes the quickest trip to the Hot Country Songs summit since Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road" pushed 2-1 in its second week on the Feb. 25, 2017-dated tally; the latter proceeded to rule for 34 weeks.
On the all-genre, multi-metric Billboard Hot 100, "The Git Up" soars 29-16 for a new peak.
DAN + SHAY + 'MYSELF' Dan + Shay notch their seventh Hot Country Songs top 10 as "All to Myself" rises 11-9. The track reaches the upper tier with 6.8 million streams (up 13%) and 5,000 sold (up 28%). On Country Airplay, it hops 8-7, up 15% to 27.7 million impressions.
'ROSES' BLOOM Plus, Runaway June's first LP, Blue Roses, debuts at No. 36 on Top Country Albums with 5,000 equivalent album units. With 3,000 in traditional album sales, it starts at No. 5 on Country Album Sales. The trio's set includes the single "Buy My Own Drinks"; at No. 15 on Country Airplay, it's the first top 20 hit for an all-female country group since 2005.
