Dan + Shay are stealing more than affection in their new video for “Steal My Love.”
The opening scenes of the music video give off a Mission: Impossible vibe, filled with police cars, an explosion and a heist, as the duo’s Dan Smyers descends from a cable (with help from his cohort Shay Mooney) into a guarded room to steal a briefcase. Mooney and Smyers manage to escape the building, leading to a car chase as they are pursued by a group of men clad in black ski masks. But when the group catches up and surrounds the duo’s car, what looks to be a high-stakes action video instantly pivots into a scene more akin to La La Land as they break into dance.
Mooney, Smyers and company show off some fancy footwork throughout the remainder of the “Steal My Love” video, weaving theatrics and dance choreography in and out of the ongoing heist storyline. The song itself features a smooth groove reminiscent of ’90s teen pop, spearheaded by stacked harmonies and Mooney’s glossy, endlessly versatile vocals.
Dan + Shay first premiered the “Steal My Love” video exclusively on Facebook. The song was penned by Smyers with Andy Albert, Ashley Gorley and Jordan Reynolds. (Reynolds was also a co-writer on Dan + Shay’s 2018 hit “Tequila.”)
“Steal My Love” is from the duo’s fourth studio album Good Things, which came out Friday and became the first country album of the streaming era to earn RIAA gold status on the day of its release.
Meanwhile, the album’s third single, “Glad You Exist,” sits atop Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, while “Steal My Love” enters the chart at No. 35, making it the week’s highest debut.
Earlier this year, the duo also announced rescheduled dates for their Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour, featuring Ingrid Andress and The Band Camino. The tour is slated to launch Sept. 9 in Greenville, S.C.
