Dan + Shay’s “10,000 Hours” With Justin Bieber: “This Song Has Reached New Places We Never Dreamed Of”

In January, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay scored their seventh No. 1 single as “10,000 Hours,” which features Justin Bieber, ascended to the top spot on both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart. The tune has also spend 20 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Co-penned by Dan, Shay, Justin, Jessie Jo Dillon, Jordan Reynolds and Jason Boyd, “10,000 Hours” features Shay and Justin trading vocals alongside Dan’s production. The tune is the first new music from Dan + Shay since the release of their 2018 self-titled album, which spawned three No. 1 singles: “All to Myself,” “Tequila” and “Speechless.”

As Dan told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, their collaboration with pop star Justin Bieber has helped the duo’s music reach new places they “never dreamed of.”

“This has been really cool,” says Dan. “I mean, obviously, ‘Tequila’ and ‘Speechless’ changed our world in such a big way, but this song has reached new places that we had never dreamed of having music out [in], so to have people listening to country music all around the world is unbelievable. And, Justin, I know, is excited to be a part of it. He loves country music [and] has always been a fan, so having him on our song is pretty surreal. I have to pinch myself. I’m like, ‘We’ve got like the biggest superstar in the world on our song!’ It’s insane.”

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
