There’s been a lot of Selena Gomez action of late, as she preps for the release of her new album, When The Sun Goes Down, out June 28. First, we got the chance to hear “Bang Bang Bang,” the cool and sultry pop record produced by hitmaker Toby Gad. Then, a 1:49 preview of her song “We Own The Night” surfaced as well. And, yesterday, we introduced you to “Whiplash,” the electro-pop record cowritten by Britney Spears. Oh, and let us not forget Selena’s retro-inspired Billboard magazine shoot and the riveting Selena-only photo gallery we made for you as well. We’re dizzy just thinking about it all.
Selena’s latest song, “Love You Like A Love Song,” was released on iTunes today and first gained notoriety when controversial video stills revealed that team Selena had dyed an entire horse pink for the video. Animal activist groups (and Pink) went wild, and Selena has since decided to omit the horse from the final cut. Admittedly, NOT the best way to debut her new song. But let’s move on to the music now, shall we?
Selena’s appearance on “Good Morning America” this morning marked the first official live performance of her new song. Fans were treated to a clearly healthy Selena, who boldly belted out her love tune (we all know who she’s singing to though, so we’ll spare you the Bieber reference this time). A markedly more mature Selena coyly sang, “you are beautiful like a dream come alive/incredible a sinful miracle, lyrical/you saved my life again, and I want you to know baby/I love you like a song love baby, and I keep hitting repeat.”
Will you hit repeat on Selena’s new record? Judge for yourself, and watch Selena perform her new song “Love You Like A Love Song.”
