"Burnin' It Down" is a song written by Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, and Florida Georgia Line members Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, and recorded by American country music artist Jason Aldean. It was released in July 2014 as the lead single from his sixth studio album, Old Boots, New Dirt.
The song is a midtempo ballad about a sexual encounter with a lover. Aldean told Country Music Television that he considered the song "baby making music". He also felt that it was a different song style for him due to it being more sexual in nature and featuring a drum loop.
Giving it a "B" Tammy Ragusa of Country Weekly wrote that "Jason proves he can also change things up, which he does dramatically through edgy, urban-and-pop-influenced arrangements and production" and "the song's sexy lyrics push the boundaries of what might be construed as traditional themes in country music." Website Saving Country Music gave the song a very negative review, rating the song "Two Guns Way Down". It called the song "a roast", heavily criticizing its EDM-oriented production and its lyrics, saying the song "isn’t sexy, it’s creepy".
During its first week in release, the song sold 184,000 downloads in the United States and debuted at number 42 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. In its second week, the song moved from number 42 to 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart. On September 29, 2014, the song was certified Platinum by the RIAA just nine weeks after release, becoming the fastest single of 2014 to do that. It reached its millionth sales mark in October 2014.
In Canada, the song sold 15,000 downloads in its debut week.
