Thomas Rhett, ‘Get Me Some of That’ [Listen]
Stirring popular sayings of the day into a fluid melody is certainly one proven way to score a country hit. Thomas Rhett is hoping that formula works for ‘Get Me Some of That,’ the new single from his debut ‘It Goes Like This’ album.
While lumbering up to a purdy girl and grunting, “Daaanggg! I gotta get me some of that” is likely to get a country boy slapped, Rhett makes the sentiment sound sweeter than Georgia tea in this song. His chorus is unique in a familiar setting. Each word plays off the beat of the previous two.
“You’re shakin’ that money maker, like a heart breaker, like your college major / Was twistin’ and tearin’ up Friday nights / Love the way you’re wearin’ those jeans so tight,” he sings. It’s an intoxicating hook that works to drop the listener into the club.
Essentially, ‘Get Me Some of That’ is another song about picking up a girl, but Rhett is smart enough to know it’s not what you say, but how you say it. At just 23, he isn’t far-removed from the bar scene; actually if he weren’t happily married and famous, he could be the scruffy cowboy saying:
“Yeah girl, been diggin’ on you / Sippin’ on drink number two / Tryin’ to come up with somethin’ smooth / And waitin’ on the right time to make my move.”
Michael Carter teamed with Rhett Akins and Cole Swindell to pen this uptempo single, the fourth from Rhett’s just-released album.
Why Fans Will Love It: ‘Get Me Some of That’ is a clever turn of a popular expression. The hook is colorful and catchy.
Key Lyrics: “I bet your kiss is a soul saver, my favorite flavor, want it now and later / I never seen nothin’ I wanted so bad / Girl, I gotta get me, gotta get me some of that”
Did You Know?: Thomas Rhett admits he went through a stage where he tried to avoid his father’s shadow, but now says having him in a writing room is like having a best friend to work with. The ’90s hitmaker let his son find his own way to success instead of offering to help out early.
