Little Big Town‘s new music video for “Girl Crush” has the quartet playing the band at a dance. Complete with a disco ball, the black-and-white video features Karen Fairchild on lead vocals as she sings of how she has a crush of sorts on the object of an ex’s affection.
“I want to taste her lips, yeah ’cause they taste like you/ I want to drown myself in a bottle of her perfume,” she sings. “I want her long blonde hair/ I want her magic touch/ Yeah, ’cause maybe then you’d want me just as much.”
While the disco ball spins high above the dance floor, a quick cut to a couple dancing close is shown. From Fairchild’s perspective it looks like she is singing the song directly to them.
In an interview with Radio.com last year, Little Big Town discussed the song, which was written by the Love Junkies, a trio of female songwriters made up of Lori McKenna (“I Want Crazy,” “Your Side of the Bed,” “Sober”), Liz Rose (“You Belong with Me,” “Teardrops on My Guitar,” “White Horse”) and Hillary Lindsey (“Jesus Take the Wheel,” “Last Name,” “Two Black Cadillacs”).
