Lauren Alaina recruits Jon Pardi to join her on “Getting Over Him,” the just-released title track off her new EP.
Fun-loving and full of swagger, the tune is all about how a fling can ease post-breakup pain. While Lauren’s part of the song mourns the loss of a relationship and an unfaithful partner, Jon chimes in to offer her a good time and distract her from her heartbreak.
“We were dive bar kissing / Heartbreak fixing / No strings Saturday night,” the two singers harmonize in the chorus. “Hot like a match / It burned out fast / Forever wasn’t in our eyes…”
Lauren and Jon effortlessly trade lines throughout the song, and for good reason: It’s not their first time collaborating. Lauren signed on as a guest artist for Jon’s “Don’t Blame it on Whiskey,” off his Heartache Medication album.
While she’s no stranger to duet projects, Lauren admits that she’s a little surprised her EP includes a song about moving on with a quick fling.
“I’ve done duets with other people for their projects, but I have never done any for my own,” she explains “…[Jon’s] energy is so amazing. I can’t believe I have a rebound song — but I do.”
Getting Over Him is due out on September 4.
