Billy Currington’s latest single “Do I Make You Wanna” has topped Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for three consecutive weeks. Following his previous two-week No. 1 hit “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To,” Currington’s latest achievement makes him the only country artist to land back-to-back multi-week No. 1 singles in the past year (Aug. 2016 – Aug. 2017). He is one of six artists to mark this accomplishment in the past four years (Aug. 2013 – Aug. 2017), alongside Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean and Blake Shelton. Additionally, Currington is the fourth artist this year to notch a three-week No. 1 single, joining the ranks of Jon Pardi, Sam Hunt and Blake Shelton.
Written by Ashley Gorley, Zach Crowell, Matt Jenkins, and Jerry Flowers, “Do I Make You Wanna” is the fourth single off Currington’s latest album, Summer Forever, and marks his 12th No. 1 single of his career. “The mellow, sincere country groove” (Taste of Country) meshes perfectly with the country star’s signature smooth, laid-back style. Fans can catch Currington on the road headlining his Stay Up ‘Til The Sun tour.

Billy Currington (Do I Make You Wanna) 2 OC: …record it. :24
“It just felt good. The lyrical content is written so perfect. It’s a question. ‘Do I make you wanna dance real slow/do I make you wanna go fly down a two-lane road/am I that guy/am I the one that’s making you happy ‘cause I wanna know/do I make you wanna.’ It just spoke to me. I became a big fan. I listened to it over and over, so I had to record it.”
Billy Currington (Do I Make You Wanna) OC: …number ones. :42
“‘Do I Make You Wanna’ was recorded, actually, it was one of the first three songs that was recorded. It was ‘Don’t It,’ ‘Do I Make You Wanna’ and a song called ‘Soundtrack.’ And those three were recorded and sent in for the first single. You know, we had to pick a song out of those three songs. ‘Do I Make You Wanna’ was a strong contender [for first single] for me and I think other people at the label. It’s just got that laid-back thing, and easy to sing and just a really, really cool song. A cool vibe, that’s definitely what I’d say about this. It’s got that vibe. The writers aren’t too bad either. [laughs] They’ve had quite a few number-ones.”
