Don't Let Go

Album: David Archuleta (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Archuleta penned this plea to hold on with former 'N Sync-er JC Chasez. This was one of two songs on Archuleta's self-titled debut album that he has writing credits for, the other one being "A Little Too Not Over You." The Utah singer told MTV News that recording a song he had a hand in crafting wasn't any more difficult than singing someone else's song, but it did allow him to have a better understanding of what he was singing about. He explained that this song, "was a lot of fun to record 'cause I really understood the song."
