One Direction's new single "Steal My Girl" has finally arrived online in all its glory. After weeks of anticipation from Directioners, a big 20 second snippet and a leak possible courtesy of Liam Payne, "Steal My Girl" can now be heard in all its '80s channeling glory.
One Direction has been playing and selling out massive stadiums for years now, but the band's sound is finally reflecting that massive, '80s anthemic arena rock. "Steal My Girl" opens up with a pounding keyboard melody fit for Journey before going into perfectly harmonized vocals about their dream girl, who is just so irresistible that the whole world wants her.
"Kisses like cream, he walk is so mean / And every jaw drops when she's in those jeans / Alright," the band sings in the second verse. "I don't exist if I don't have her / The sun doesn't shine, the world doesn't turn / Alright."
A little dramatic, but this girl is just that good. Mixing in the loving, catering lyrics with the mid-tempo power piano chords and this song is a straight play from the One Direction playbook. And it's a stomping ear worm fit for the massive boy band.
