Country-pop duo Dan + Shay could add skilled dancer to their resumé.
Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney recently brought fans behind the scenes of their high-quality music video for “Steal My Love.” The music video that initially dropped in early August of 2021, captures the Grammy Award-winning duo dancing and singing as – robbers.
Within the music video, Dan + Shy effortlessly execute a well-thought-out heist. While sporting bright red jumpsuits, the disguised vocalists manage to steal a magical briefcase from a locked and sealed vault. Just when the two thought they were in the clear, they found themselves in a high-profile car chase with a gang of masked hooligans.
Before the bad guys could snag the treasured suitcase from their hands, Dan + Shay dance their way out of the sticky situation.
Throughout the clip, the multi-platinum musicians reference several renowned action-packed films. For instance, the old-fashion cars are a friendly nod to “Gone In 60 Seconds,” briefcase from “Pulp Fiction,” and the grand flash-mob routine from “In The Heights.”
To break down the impressive stunts, the chart-topping singers documented each long day on the set of the movie-like music video in Springfield, Tennessee.
“We’re here on set at the “Steal My Love” music video,” shared Mooney. “We got our jumpsuits. It feels right. It feels pretty cool. I feel like a bank robber right now. It’s pretty awesome,” he added while standing in the street of the quaint town.
The behind the scenes video displays the magic of production, as they demonstrate how their dream team tackled every complex shot and angle. Within the first few seconds of the captivating clip, fans will learn how Smyers accomplished his hire-wire mission and discover how he pulled off a perfect banana peel slip.
“We had a lot of fun, a lot of talented people. We had a lot of dancers – fantastic choreography. TBD… if we look fantastic, we’re going to do our best,” Mooney added with confidence.
Smyers continued to reveal that the difficult choreography forced them to step outside their comfort zone.
“We have the most incredible, talented squad on this. My mind is just blown watching them dance. We’re not good dancers.” The hitmaker revealed. “Apologize for everyone out there for our efforts. We’re trying our best. We’re having fun…these guys are just amazing,” he added while pointing to the dedicated crew.
The short video serves as Dan + Shay’s return to social media after taking a two-month hiatus.
“Hi! So stoked that Steal My love is nominated for Group/ Dup Video of the Year @CMT Awards. We wanted to give you a behind the scenes look at how we created it. It would mean a of if Y’all would hit the link in our bio to vote! Votes between 12 – 1 CT count as double,” the dynamic duo shared on Twitter.
Smyers and Mooney confirmed that they are “rested, refreshed, and more excited about music than ever before.” They both warned fans to keep their eyes and ears glued to social media, because more music news will be "coming soon."
