Stephanie Quayle’s latest single, “Selfish,” has the Montana native singing of spending some quality alone time with her husband. All dolled up for a night to themselves, Quayle explains how she’s selfish when it comes to her beau.
“Sometimes I’m like, ‘Man, I just want some more time with my husband,'” she previously told me in an interview. “I was like, ‘I hate sharing him. Man, I’m being so selfish.’ Then [I thought], ‘Oh, that might be a good song idea.'”
Quayle released the music video for the song on Tuesday (March 6). Directed by Jeff Johnson (Carrie Underwood/Cole Swindell/Chris Young), the concept behind the video was to reveal a more intimate, softer side to her fans.
“This video concept is simple — think back to the white T-shirt and jeans style of GAP and Calvin Klein,” Quayle describes in a press release. “The lyrics of this song say it all so we wanted to capture their raw vulnerability on screen without having a literal visual representation.”
During an interview last year with Taste of Country, Quayle said she first moved to Nashville over seven years ago. Instantly in awe at the level of writers in Music City, she hoped to one day fit into the songwriting community. Her unique vision for “Selfish,” among other songs she penned for her latest album Love the Way You See Me, have made this dream a reality for the singer-songwriter.
“One of my greatest desires when I moved to Nashville was to earn the respect of the community. The songwriting community, the artist community, and it be real and authentic. I think what I’m starting to feel is that camaraderie from a real, honest way,” she notes.
