Jake Owen's "If He Ain't Gonna Love You" is his not-so-secret weapon on the American Love album. The funky, R&B inspired collaboration with Chris Stapleton is the song you keep coming back to, again and again ...

... and again. It's infectious. It's satisfying. "If He Ain't Gonna Love You" is a new look for the country veteran — one that buys into a new Nashville sound with absolute sincerity. The song is also a highlight of his live show.

Heavy bass and guitar lead the progressive production, with Stapleton joining in early. Together the two combine to create a provocative sound through a melodic chorus. A few other voices help fill out the back end of "If He Ain't Gonna Love You," an all-out jam that dares you not to dance.

Did You Know?: Owen used to call Stapleton's publisher and ask for his demos, just because he liked listening to him sing. That's how he found "If He Ain't Gonna Love You."

Jake Owen's "If He Ain't Gonna Love You" Lyrics:

“Girl, well, I don't know what kind of fool he must be / To think that he could leave you alone / And nobody would be taking you home.”

Chorus:
“Girl, I need to talk to you / Cause I got a question, it's more like a suggestion / And here's the deal / If he ain't gonna love you / If he ain't gonna love you, I will / Like you never been loved before / Up against the wall when you walk in the door / Looking like you wanna leave, you want some more / If he ain't gonna love you, I will.”

“Girl, well, it's obvious that something ain't right / Or else you wouldn't be here tonight / And I don't wanna come on too strong / Don't get me wrong.”

“Give you something you can hold onto / Never gonna stop 'til the whole night's through / Love you like a lover is supposed to do / If he ain't gonna love you, I will / I will, oh, girl, I will / If he ain't gonna love you, I will.”
