"Done" (stylized as "DONE.") is a song recorded by American country music group The Band Perry. It was released in March 2013 as the second single from their second album, Pioneer. Neil and Reid Perry co-wrote the song with John Davidson and Jacob Bryant.[1] As of August 28, 2013, the first week in which the song was no longer ranked among the top 30 selling country digital singles, the single has sold 782,000 in the United States.[2]

Content[edit]

The song has its female narrator addressing a former lover, stating that she is "done" with him.

Critical reception[edit]

The song has achieved critical acclaim, with music critics labeling it as "very catchy" and one of the stand-out tracks on Pioneer. Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song four and a half stars out of five, writing that it "is best enjoyed at an extremely loud volume. It’s the type of song that sells concert tickets, because you know it’s going to be quite a moment when the group gets to thrashing around on stage during the three-and-a-half minute track."[3] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the song four stars out of five, saying that "the melody puts the Up in Uptempo while Kimberly Perry delivers a vocal that's all attitude and sass."[4]

The song was nominated for "Choice Music: Break-Up Song" at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, but it lost to "Come and Get It" by Selena Gomez.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Declan Whitebloom and premiered in April 2013.[5] It features the band performing the song with cut-scenes of the band playing a human chess game with other people and all the players coming together in the end.

In popular culture[edit]

"Done" was covered several artists including Holly Tucker of The Voice,[6] Chloe Channell of America's Got Talent[7]
