“I’m a sensitive guy,” Allen, 32, tells PEOPLE Now. “I go to Disney a bunch of times a year, I wear small pants. I love it, dude. Typically, in relationships, I catch feelings first, fast.”

Jimmie Allen’s magical new Make Me Want To video features references to Harry Potter, Disney and ‘The Notebook.’
“I’m a huge fan of Disney, Harry Potter and The Notebook. I wanted to create a video that showcased my love for all three,” Allen shares with CMT. “I feel like authenticity is celebrated today more than ever so with this video I really wanted to highlight my quirky side.”

And that he did. It was a chance worth taking for Allen, who has been enjoying a well-earned rise to stardom. His debut single “Best Shot” just earned Allen his first No. 1 single, which stayed at the top of the charts for a record three weeks.

 

 

“I wrote it about a guy that catches feelings fast,” Allen told PopCulture.com. “He’s ready to tell a girl he loves her after the first date. And I feel like, it’s never too soon to tell someone you love them, but it can be too late. So I’d rather, if you got feelings, if you love an hour in, if you love them two days in… People try to say that’s not possible, but I’m a fan of the Renaissance days where there weren’t any distractions with social media and everything, and we could just focus on that one person in your life.

Make Me Want To – Jimmie Allen

[Verse 1]
Long legs, cut off jeans
Pulling me in like a magnet
Your eyes locked on me
I knew right then I had to have you

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Right here in the middle of the floor
Of this hole-in-the-wall on a back street
I knew I had to get close to you

[Chorus]
Girl what’s your name, what you drinking?
Yeah what’s your favorite song?
If you’re thinking what I’m thinking
We ain’t gonna be in this bar too long
We’ll be sneaking on out to your car
Stealing kisses out there in the dark
Yeah it might be too soon to say I love you
But you’re gonna make me want to

[Verse 2]
Soft hands touching on me
Lighting me up like a bonfire
Your lips are making me think
This is gonna be an all-nighter

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Right here in the middle of the crowd
You’re the center of the world on a barstool
Oh yeah I had to get close to you, girl

[Chorus]
Girl what’s your name, what you drinking?
Yeah what’s your favorite song?
If you’re thinking what I’m thinking
We ain’t gonna be in this bar too long
We’ll be sneaking on out to your car
Stealing kisses out there in the dark
Yeah it might be too soon to say I love you
But you’re gonna make me want to

[Bridge]
Yeah
We’ll be sneaking on out to your car, car, car
Stealing kisses out there in the dark, dark, dark

[Chorus]
Girl what’s your name, what you drinking?
Yeah what’s your favorite song?
If you’re thinking what I’m thinking
We ain’t gonna be in this bar too long
We’ll be sneaking on out to your car
Stealing kisses out there in the dark
Yeah it might be too soon to say I love you
But you’re gonna make me want to

[Outro]
You’re gonna make me want to
You’re gonna make me want to, girl
You’re gonna make me want to, want to
I want you
