Give Love

Album: The Good Parts (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This summer jam was inspired by Andy Grammer's mother, who according to the singer gave more love to the world than anyone else he has ever met. He explained:

    "It's a song about how my mom taught me to live my life and give love to everybody that I see and meet. She gave super amounts of love. I always say that my mom gave me so much love that I walk around feeling like I have extra to give away. So it's a kind of song about that."
  • Grammer is joined halfway through the song by Florida singer-songwriter Lunchmoney Lewis, who is best known for his 2015 single "Bills."
