BackgroundEdit

The announcement was first made on band member Liam Payne's Twitter on 14 September. The single became available worldwide on 29 September, except in the United Kingdom. The song was made available in the United Kingdom on 12 October, with Payne's remix of the recording (dubbed as the Big Payno and Afterhrs Pool Party Remix) being the B-side. The song's co-writer Louis Tomlinson stated the song is a "feel good song and it’s not too far away from the last album (Midnight Memories)." On 28 September, one day prior to the official release, the song was leaked on the internet.

Critical ReceptionEdit

ANDPOP writer Evan Ross stated: "I’m more than a little bit obsessed with this song. My heart starts to race as Zayn’s voice kicks off the song and the record, and it just gets better from there. I’ve been humming this insanely catchy tune for days, and it’s the perfect lead single for this album." [1]

Commercial PerformanceEdit

"Steal My Girl" was a top 20 hit in the USA, peaking at #13. It reached #3 in the UK and #9 in Australia. The band heavily promoted the single, performing it around the world in late 2014

LyricsEdit

[Zayn]
She been my queen
Since we were sixteen
We want the same things,
We dream the same dreams,
Alright, alright

I got it all
'Cause she is the one
Her mom calls me 'love',
Her dad calls me 'son',
Alright, alright

[Niall]
I know, I know, I know for sure

[All]
Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na na (oh, yeah)
Na na na na na na (alright)

[Liam]
Kisses like cream,
Her walk is so mean
And every jaw drop
When she's in those jeans,
Alright, alright

[Louis]
I don't exist
If I don't have her
The sun doesn't shine,
The world doesn't turn,
Alright, alright

[Niall]
But I know, I know, I know for sure

[All]
Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na na (oh, yeah)
Na na na na na na (alright)

Na na na na na na

[Harry]
She knows, she knows
That I've never let her down before
She knows, she knows
That I'm never gonna let another take her love from me now

[All]
Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me
