Prepare to add another song to your summer playlist! Lauren Hashian released the love song she wrote for husband Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on their first wedding anniversary and saying we're obsessed with the new single is an understatement.
Hashian wrote the song, "Step Into A Love Like This," as a wedding gift to Johnson, surprising him with a performance during their secret Hawaiian wedding on August 18, 2019. Now, a year after the pair tied the knot, she's sharing the intimate track with fans.
"This has been the most personal and rewarding song I’ve ever written," revealed Hashian on Instagram. "Personal because every word is from the heart, and rewarding because one year ago today on our wedding day August 18, 2019, I was able to share this song with my man I now call my husband in front of our little girls and our family & friends."
The Rock also shared news of the song, along with intimate footage from their wedding day, in a heartfelt anniversary post on Instagram yesterday. "One year ago today, on August 18, 2019 - I had the honor of marrying @laurenhashianofficial. Later that night she surprised me with this beautiful song, “Step Into A Love Like This” that she wrote and sang herself in honor of our marriage," he said, adding, "From the moment I heard the song’s opening line, of '...every angel in heaven is singing for us today...' as tribute to our loved ones who’ve passed away and no longer with us - I got very emotional. As I still get emotional today when I hear those words and watch this wedding footage."
The wedding film gives fans a rare look into the couple's summer nuptials last year. From their picturesque ceremony venue to their heartfelt vows, their Hawaiian "I do" was even better than we imagined. We also saw glimpses of The Rock's loving moments as a father—when his young daughter adorably tripped down the aisle he was quick to leave the altar and help her finish her flower girl duties!
Along with the release of the single, Hashian and Johnson are encouraging couples whose wedding plans have been impacted by COVID-19 to submit videos of their quarantine engagement or wedding here (or on social media with #StepIntoALoveVideo). Submitted footage could appear in the song's upcoming music video, which will premiere later this month.
If Johnson and Hashian's relationship is what love looks like, we'll gladly step into it! In the meantime, we're making "Step Into A Love Like This" our WFH soundtrack. Listen for yourself below!
