Selena Gomez's "Me & The Rhythm" Preview Proves Her New Album Is Going To Be Very Diverse — LISTEN
Attention Selenators: Over the weekend, Selena Gomez previewed "Me & The Rhythm," a new song from her upcoming album, Revival (due out Oct. 9). The 23-year-old singer has been adamant in recent interviews that her new LP will show off her artistic (and personal) growth, and so far, she's putting her money where her mouth is. "Me & The Rhythm," a collaboration with up-and-coming Swedish production duo Mattman & Robin (Taylor Swift's "All You Had to Do Was Stay"), is a disco-infused pop number that doesn't sound like anything else Gomez has ever recorded — and that's really exciting. She's experimenting with different genres and, as you'll hear in the clip below, using her voice in new ways.
Let's see, first, Gomez served up some sensual R&B-pop goodness with "Good For You." Then, she got a little alternative and angsty with "Same Old Love." Now, she's gone all '70s roller rink on us with "Me & The Rhythm"! What more could you ask for? I can't wait to hear what she has in store for us next.
In the brief "Me & The Rhythm" snippet, Gomez sings: "Everybody wants to get some, but don't you play a song about love / When I move my body, I don't have to talk about nothin' / Let the camera go do its stuff, 'til the energy is too much / Yeah, all I need is the rhythm / Me and the rhythm / Nothing between me and the rhythm." It's already stuck in my head!
The official Revival release date is still 11 days away, but we might get to listen to "Me & The Rhythm" before then. You see, there's a rumor going around online at the moment that Gomez will release "Me & The Rhythm" as a promotional single on Fri., Oct. 2. That's just around the corner! Hopefully the rumor mill is correct, because I'm dying to hear it.
You can pre-order Revival on iTunes now.
