This weekend, Selena Gomez (And The Scene!) gifted her fans with a sneak peek of her killer new song, “Bang Bang Bang.” TODAY, the girl gave it up in full and revealed the full song — and thank goodness she did, because we were sort of starting to lose it.
While the “Bang Bang Bang” preview gave us a little taste of the more mature and sultry Selena, the full version takes it to a whole new level. The Toby Gad-produced jam has got a cool ’80s vibe, while still capturing that same young and fresh sound Selena is known for. A marked departure from sunny and bright records like “Who Says,” Selena confidently, coyly croons, “My new boy, knows the way I want it/he’s got more swagger than you, he’s got more swagger than you do.”
Um, obviously, we all know who Selena’s “new boy” is, and we’d wager a few of our hard-earned bucks that her new relationship has made a big impact on her fresh new sound. And speaking of fresh, Selena’s got a new look to go with her new record and new man. And may we just say, we think it’s working for her. Just look at that Texas hair! Does that remind you of a Disney starlet? We think not. But, we gotta hand it to her. Even in the midst of all the growing pains that accompany shaping a new look, Selena is still keeping it classy and producing irresistible new pop tracks too. Stay tuned for Selena Gomez’s full-length album, When The Sun Goes Down, out June 28.
