Jason Aldean thinks 'Got What I Got' sounds like a Boyz II Men song

Jason Aldean went for more of a throwback vibe when creating "Got What I Got," according to The Boot. It's clear he wanted to make something different when you hear the scratch of the vinyl needle at the beginning of the song.

When Aldean sings (via Genius), "When I got what I got, I don't miss what I had / The old me before you belongs to the past / In the back of your mind, you might think there's somethin' more I want / But when I got what I got, girl, I don't," it's clear he's thankful for what he has now with no plans to go back to the way he used to be. According to the outlet, "Jason explains how other people may view things he did in his life as a mistake, or that he longs for something else. But he says that he doesn't, as he already has everything he wants."

He went on to reveal that "Got What I Got" is his wife Brittany Aldean's favorite song from his album "9," per The Boot. "Whenever she goes, "All the girls are gonna love that song," I'm like, "Alright, that's why I cut it!" he said.

Aldean dished on the song's old-school factor, saying, "I grew up listening to the big vinyl records that my dad had, and now you can bring those sounds back a little bit. CDs and streaming and all that sounds really clean, but I still like that little dirtiness of the old vinyl."
