Jake Owen's "If He Ain't Gonna Love You" from his 'American Love' album also features Chris Stapleton's vocals.

Florida native Jake Owen‘s “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You,” penned by Chris Stapleton, Luke Laird, and Shane McAnally, will be the second single from his album American Love. Two weeks ago, Owen earned his sixth career No. 1 single with “American Country Love Song.”

Check out the audio below!

“I actually recorded ‘If He Ain’t Gonna Love You’ two years ago,” explains Owen. “I loved the song from the first time I heard it. Chris Stapleton, Luke Laird and my producer Shane McAnally wrote it. Man, I’m so lucky that Stapleton sang background vocals on the track during that time because we recorded it before his album, Traveller, was released and his life changed forever. It’s a song that’s got a lot of funk to it, a lot of R&B flair and I’m really proud to have this song on American Love. When my album came out, so many people told me that ‘If He Ain’t Gonna Love You’ was their favorite song and I’m really happy to share with everyone that it’s going to be the second single.”

“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

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

Girl, I need to talk to you
‘Cause I got a question, see, 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
Oh, girl, I will

If he ain’t gonna love you
If he ain’t gonna love you
If he ain’t gonna love you
If he ain’t gonna love you, I will
If he ain’t gonna love you
If he ain’t gonna love you
If he ain’t gonna love you
If he ain’t gonna love you

Girl, I need to talk to you
Oh ’cause I got a question, see, 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

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
