One Direction officially released their latest single "Steal My Girl" off their forthcoming Four album on Monday. Directioners around the world praised 1D's new sound and song. 

But we all want to know... who is this girl that everybody wants to steal???

According to "Steal My Girl" co-writer Julian Bunetta, there is more than one girl who inspired the song. "There are a few meanings behind it… there is the one that speaks to the bigger picture of them and their fans, and there is the one that speaks to the actual person in your life, and that was very intentional. It's based on everybody's experience: you have six guys in a room that have all been in love before and we all have jealousy - some are better at hiding it than others, but we don't like it when people hit on our girlfriends."

It's not all bad, though. "It was more of a joyous thing, it just speaks to how happy you are with this person. If you have soothing great, everyone is going to try and take it from you. And that also speaks to the fanbase, I think, 'cause of other groups [trying to steal the 1D fanbase]… there are a lot of layers."
