Jameson Rodgers Takes “Some Girls” to No. 1
October 27, 2020
Jameson Rodgers is celebrating his first No. 1 single as an artist, as his debut single “Some Girls” tops the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts.
“When I moved to Nashville in 2010, I had a dream. I’m living my dream right now thanks to country radio, amazing fans and the best team any artist could ask for,” said Rodgers “I just feel so blessed for the opportunity and look forward to hopefully many more.”
“Some Girls” is the first solo male debut single to top the charts in one year. With a 49-week run, “Some Girls” has set a new record for the longest climb to No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart for a debut single. Rodgers recently received GOLD certification for the track, and performed on NBC’s “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna.” The 2020 MusicRow Discovery Artist of the Year topped the all-genre Billboard Emerging Artist chart last week, only the fifth country artist to do so this year, and “Some Girls” entered Top 40 territory on the illustrious Hot 100 chart.
“Some Girls” has been celebrated by critics, with Rolling Stone lauding the track as “a mix of masculine rock grit, country storytelling, quick-hitting vocals and tasty electro-pop accents,” and MusicRow echoing “The snarling electric guitar work and pounding rhythm in the production match the “edge” in his performance.” The track has earned more than 115 million on-demand streams.
