Are you an American country pop music diehard? If so, you should be familiar with popular artists like Jordan Davis. Born on March 30, 1988, Davis is a renowned Universal Music Group Nashville MCA Nashville division’s member. According to Jordan Davis, music runs in the family because his brother (Jacob Davis) and Sister (Jentry) also specialize in country music. Here are 10 Jordan Davis songs of all time, starting from the worst to the best.
10. Singles You Up- Ryan Riback Remix
The “Singles You Up” song by Jordan Davis is perhaps one of the worst on this list because his vocal charisma isn’t to full potential. Though his voice contains some shades of Sam Hunt, he delivers more traditional than the former. When it comes to songwriting, most critics argue that the song is terrible. The song revolves around a guy trying to hit on a girl who already has a boyfriend. The guy hopes the girl will look for him if her relationship with the boyfriend doesn’t pull through. Considering how relationships are volatile nowadays, who’ll want to listen to another potential breakup song?
9. Lose You
“People break up, and fall out of love/ But giving up is something that I won’t do,” Jordan Davis sings. “Lose You” is perhaps one of the worst songs the singer has ever sung. Blame it on the fact that he released it during the COVID-19 pandemic era. The singer uses this song to inspire couples to hold on to relationships no matter how turbulent things are going. However, the song doesn’t depict real-life situations considering the rise in divorce cases and relationship breakups over the past years.
8. Cool Anymore ft Julia Michaels
Released on 8 November 2019, “Cool Anymore” is a song by Jordan Davis and Julia Michaels whose aim is to recognize female singers. Jordan has always looked up to Julia, and it didn’t long to decide to collaborate with her through this song. Davis sings about what happens when all the glam and glitz of being cool fades off and how love surpasses it all. He released the song strategically when the gender-breaking CMA awards came knocking.
7. Buy Dirt (Acoustic Version)
“Buy Dirt” is also a song by Jordan Davis that was released in 2020, at the time when the COVID-19 pandemic was wreaking havoc in the music industry. The producer utilizes a minimalist approach to the production, making the song sound lightweight. Its acoustic version with drum sets in the background until the second chorus. Critics argue that the less-is-more approach could be one of the selling points of the song, but the bright and breezy vibe takes attention away from the seriousness of the message.
6. Drink Had Me
“Hell, I was up to nothing. Just sitting home alone. Yeah, I was going to cash it in. About to put down my phone. And the message waiting. Them boys won’t let me sleep….” Davis Sings. “Drink had me” is an endearing song that depicts how partying can be a time-reliever.

4. Almost Maybes
Davis may have made a wrong impression in country music as an entrant, but his song “Almost Maybes” disputes that fact. He wrote the song with the help of Hillary Lindsey and Jesse Frasure.
