9 Years Ago: “Lover, Lover” by Jerrod Niemann Hits #1
There are some songs that are just flat out catchy. Every time you hear them, it's nearly impossible not to sing along. "Lover, Lover" by Jerrod Niemann is one of those songs.
What's interesting about the song is that Jerrod's was a cover! That's right, "Lover, Lover" was originally recorded by the soul group Sonia Dada in 1992, under the title, "You Don't Treat Me No Good." 18 Years later, Jerrod released it as a country song.
Released to radio in March of 2010, "Lover, Lover" would hit #1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts by August.
Written by Dan Pritzker, the song would be the lead single off Niemann's Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury album.
Another cool tidbit is this wasn't Jerrod's debut single, just his first hit. Niemann first charted with "I Love Women (My Momma Can't Stand)", which peaked at #50 in April of 2007. Jerrod was on Category 5 Records then. The label would fold and Jerrod signed with Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville for "Lover, Lover."
It's such a catchy song and irresistibly fun.
Jerrod is performing at Sunset Bay Beach Club on Saturday night (August 31st), tickets still available! WYRK will be there. Don't miss out.
