Move over, Taylor Swift. Florida Georgia Line have just broken one of the singer’s records with their latest single, ‘Dirt.’

The song, which was released last week, earned 127 Mediabase adds, making it the most-added song on country radio in one week since adds have been recorded. Their high number of adds breaks Swift’s previously-held record of 116 adds in 2012 for her single, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’

‘Dirt’ is FGL’s first single from their upcoming new album. The love song is a departure from what Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard normally record, but they hint that fans can expect even more surprises when their sophomore album is released.

“We’re trying to step our game up,” Kelley says. “We’ve got a couple of awesome songs that we’re pumped about everybody hearing. Can’t wait to get the new stuff out. It’s definitely gonna have evolved from record one, but it’s still going to have that FGL feel, but we’re going to take some chances here and there.”

Florida Georgia Line have launched the Dirt Campaign to go along with their new tune. After both being able to purchase new homes in the past year, the men now hope to raise $100,000 for Habitat for Humanity, to help those in need purchase their own homes as well.

“To be able to be in the position we’re in and be so blessed over the last couple of years doing what we love is very rewarding,” Kelley tells People, “and we’ve always said we want to be bigger than the music and give back.”

Fans who donate to their Dirt Campaign will automatically be entered to win a chance to go on the This Is How We Cruise, which benefits Habitat for Humanity. Find more information here.
