The song originally served as the second single from the EP succeeding "No Broken Hearts", however the latter was scrapped from the standard track list making "I Got You" as the lead single.
Commercial performance Edit
In the United States, "I Got You" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 94 on the issue dated January 21, 2017, making it Rexha's first entry on the chart as a solo artist. The following week, it jumped to number 63, mainly due to the release of the music video. It reached and has since peaked at number 53 in its third week.
Music video Edit
Rexha filmed a music video for the song, but it was scrapped due to its explicit content. She told a radio DJ: "It was actually too sexual so I had to get rid of it. It was too much," explaining further, "I have young fans. I like to be sexy 'cause I'm a woman now, but I still want to be a good role model."
Rexha filmed later another version for the song in a desert setting. The music video debuted on January 6, 2017. The outfits she wore in the music video were compared to Kylie Jenner by Billboard.
