BLANCO BROWN ON ‘THE GIT UP’ BECOMING A VIRAL HIT: ‘I FEEL LIKE IT’LL BE AROUND FOREVER’

The Grammy nominee is an accomplished writer, vocalist and producer known for hits like “The Git Up,” which BRB notes held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 12 weeks and was the top-selling digital country song in the U.S. for 13 weeks. The music video, which premiered across CMT, MTV, BET and Nick, earned more than 20 million YouTube views in a month. He was named Billboard’s No. 1 Top New Country Artist for 2019 and one of the outlet’s “7 Country Acts to watch in 2019.”

The Atlanta native got his start working in the hip-hop world with artists such as Fergie, Childish Gambino, Kane Brown, and Chris Brown. He found viral success with “The Git Up” in 2019 after the video spread like wildfire on social media, thanks in large part to the original dance steps that he created to go along with the song.

I mean, since ‘The Git Up’ took off in May and June, it’s been nonstop; I don’t plan on slowing down,” he added. “I just want to keep on riding. It’s what I do for a living, it’s my calling and I just want to continue to spread the purpose. That’s my living message.”
