"Move" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Luke Bryan for his fifth studio album, Kill the Lights (2015). It was released to American country radio on July 25, 2016 as the album's fifth official single.

Background[edit]

The song was written by Luke Bryan, Michael Carter, and Jay Clementi. The song is about a Northern girl who moved to the South, where she "got in with some Southern belles" and her moves became even more attractive.[1] It was released to radio with an add date of July 25, 2016.[2]

Commercial performance[edit]

The song first entered the Hot Country Songs chart at number 43 in August 2015 and became available for download with the release of the album Kill the Lights,[3] selling 8,000 copies in its first week.[4] It re-entered the chart at number 42 nearly a year later after being released as a single.[5] The song has sold 254,000 copies in the US as of January 2017.[6]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Shane Drake and premiered in September 2016.[7] The video features Luke performing in a club with his band and a female dancer dancing next door. The dancer then breaks through the wall at the final chorus and dances on stage with Luke and the band. Luke is dressed in a baseball cap and T-shirt for the duration of the video, until the final scene when he is dancing with the girl, in which he wears a black suit and white undershirt.[8]
