Kip Moore invites rising star Morgan Wade to be his co-star in the alluring music video for his new song, “If I Was Your Lover.”
The multi-platinum singer/songwriter has once again proved that his energy is unmatched. “If I Was Your Lover” is the result of a late-night songwriting session with Moore’s co-writer, Matt Bubel. The pair also co-produced the track alongside The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston. Moore explained that he has been anticipating the release of this song just as much as fans have been.
“A close friend and incredible musician Matt Bubel came over one day during the initial lockdown,” Moore stated in a recent press release. “We started playing music late into the night and that’s when he played the opening keys riff. My melody immediately fell out when I heard it but was unsure of what I wanted to say. It had such a hypnotic feel about it and I listened to the recording of only that piece for the next few nights. I woke up with the whole lyric in my head one morning and I’ve been waiting to release this song ever since then.”
This song is a demonstration of the power of a lust that cannot be fulfilled and an imagination so vivid that the lines of reality and fantasy are blurred. Moore’s rich vocals evoke an addictive, trance-like state as he considers the option to act on his desires.
“If I was your lover / In this life or another / Yeah, we’d be all that we need / I would call you baby / And who knows, maybe / We’d go from nothin’ to somethin’,” he sings
The sultry music video directed by his longtime collaborator, PJ Brown shows a jealous Moore who’s watching Wade’s character flirt with a guy at the bar as he begins to wonder, what would happen “If I Was Your Lover”? The footage shot in the beautiful Charleston, SC showcases a dreamy world where the two are together and taking on all kinds of adventures. In between the scenic shots, Wade and Moore are seated on a couch, one sitting above the other as they get comfortable, running their hands across each other. The video concludes when Moore breaks out of the dreamy state and walks out of the bar, leaving Wade behind.
“Filming the video with Morgan took the song to a whole new place,” he shared honestly. “I’m excited for fans to hear this, along with see this video.”
Wade has been on the rise since creating a space for her music in the industry with the release of her ever-so-popular album, Reckless in 2021.
“We didn’t set out like, this has to have a radio single, or this has to get this or this,” she explained in an interview with People. “We set out to make a record we believed in and to see that hard work pay off and everything come back around in a good way has been amazing; it’s changed my life.”
Moore’s latest release follows his song, “Fire On Wheels,” another groovy anthem that he wrote with Johnston.
He recently announced headlining tour with the same title which will kick off in Salt Lake City, UT on September 8 and continue on through cities across the country as well as a stop in Canada. Joining Moore on the road this fall will be special guests, Boy Named Banjo.
