Jana Kramer’s “I Got the Boy” (written by Jamie Lynn Spears, Connie Harrington, and Tim Nichols) has been quite the song for the Warner Music Nashville recording artist, being added to radio stations and getting constant play on Sirius XM’s The Highway.
The single, which has been receiving praise from country music fans across the nation, is assumed to be a cut on Jana’s highly anticipated sophomore album and served as a perfect followup to the sweet-natured “Love.” Now, in continuance of the promotion of her new release, a music video has premiered that shows a thoughtful and reminiscent Jana.
“I Got the Boy” stresses the importance of closure on a relationship and saying goodbye to someone, and the video shows Jana learning to do just that. As she thumbs through boxes from yesteryear, discovering old love letters and tokens of affection, Jana longs for her past relationship while realizing that it will forever stay in the past.
Throughout the video, Jana shows off her exceptional acting skills, drawing from a place of obvious nostalgia and pain and relaying those feelings through her eyes which serve as open windows to her soul. Alternating scenes between the box of treasures to those showing the artist donning a black dress that mimics the style of a wedding gown, the video demonstrates that heartbreak has lasting effects. The backdrop in the dress scenes depicts a cold winter day that perfectly represents the mood of the singer, while simultaneously assisting the gorgeous vocals in inducing chills in those watching.
From the moment this song was released, it was clear that Jana is ready to reemerge onto the music scene by making a huge statement. The video supports that statement to the fullest and will certainly leave fans ready for more.
