Dan + Shay joined their friend Justin Bieber for another catchy and romantic song, “10,000 Hours.” The duo made up of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney are known for their heartfelt power ballads so it’s no surprise this track tugs at the heartstrings similar to “From the Ground Up” and “Speechless.” The lyrics are about wanting to know everything possible about your significant other, even if it takes “10,000 hours or the rest of my life.”
The duo and superstar teased the track earlier in the week with an Instagram post on the duo’s Instagram and their personal pages. Their symbol in teal and pink and a caption that read 10.4.19. Things got even more interesting when they posted a video Wednesday that included Justin Bieber’s name.
“I’d spend 10,000 hours and 10,000 more / Oh, if that’s what it takes to learn that sweet heart of yours / And I might never get there, but I’m gonna try / If it’s 10,000 hours or the rest of my life / I’m gonna love you”
Smyers and Mooney co-wrote the song with Bieber alongside Jessie Jo Dillon, Jordan Reynolds and Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd. The track was also produced by Smyers and promises a lifetime of learning and loving as his and Mooney’s flawless harmonies trade verses with Bieber’s smooth vocals.
It’s probably safe to assume the inspiration for the song is from their own relationships. Bieber married Hailey Baldwin last week in South Carolina and both Mooney and Smyers were there with their wives, who have been the focus of many of their other songs.
