”10,000 Hours” is the musical group Dan + Shay’s latest track. Justin Bieber has a feature in this song, and the timing of the release nicely coincides with his recent marriage to Hailey Baldwin. In fact, the duo sang this song alongside Bieber at his wedding. The interesting part is that the group had written this song with the idea of asking Bieber to be featured. Little did anyone know that Bieber would sing it at his wedding. 

The song has slight country influences as well as a hint of modern influences. The lyrics portray a person in love who is asking their partner questions: “What’s your favorite song, does it make you smile?”. The verses are filled with these innocent, ageless questions, reminding listeners of a time where things were much simpler in terms of their love lives. The title itself, “10,000 Hours”, is a reference to a popularized theory that it takes 10,000 hours to master something. In this case, it would take 10,000 hours to figure out how to truly love someone in the best way. 

This track is such a cute, romantic song. I would not be surprised at all if you start hearing it at weddings! Definitely give “10,000 Hours” a listen if you are in a romantic mood.
