Is it hot in here, or is it just me?
Kip Moore released a new single and music video for “If I Was Your Lover” today, featuring the very talented and beautiful. Morgan Wade as his collaborator in the video.
I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed that Morgan didn’t get to sing on the song at all, especially since they both emit bullies of the video and realized it was, literally, my dream collaboration.
I guess it’s my fault for assuming she meant she was actually lending her vocals to the track (you know what they say about assuming…), but hopefully we’ll get some sort of duet from them down the road.
I mean, they both have the richest and harshest voices that would blend perfectly together. It feels like a missed opportunity to not have her sing on the song because she has an absolutely incredible voice, but I digress…
The new song was co-written by Kip and Matt Bubel, and Kip says he wrote it during the initial COVID-19 lockdown in 2020:
“A close friend and musician extraordinaire Matt Bubel came over one day during the initial jam. We started playing music late into the night and then he played the opening keys riff.
My tune immediately dropped when I heard it, but I wasn’t sure what it meant. It had such a hypnotic feel to it and I listened to the recording of just that part for the next few nights.
I woke up with all the lyrics in my head one morning and have been waiting to release this song ever since. Shooting the video with Morgan took the song to a whole new place. I’m excited for fans to hear this, along with seeing this video.”
They filmed the entire video in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, and it certainly makes for a stunning backdrop for this steamy video.
Kip finds himself wondering what a relationship with her would be like after he spots her at a bar, and they’re pretty cozy throughout the video, though by the end, it seems like it was all just a daydream, as he leaves alone.
