This is the third single by American Country recording artist LeAnn Rimes from her 13th studio album Lady and Gentleman. The single was officially released for digital download to iTunes stores on June 14, 2011 and released to radio on July 18, 2011.
Rimes wrote the song with Connie Harrington, Sonya Isaacs and Jimmy Yeary. "'Give' is a song with a message about how if we want love, kindness and happiness in our lives, then we need to give some of that back," she said. "I believe that message needs to be shared with the world."
The video was filmed in Chicago in partnership with StandUp For Kids and ties in with the song's message. It's intention is to raise awareness of the issue of homeless teens across America.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
