Selena Gomez continues to surprise. This time around in her ‘Same Old Love” music video she dons a sultry black minidress and reveals glamour reminiscent of Hollywood’s golden age, as the clip for her latest single from her new album, ‘Revival,’ featuring some of her fans, is quickly going viral.
After revealing she is just as edgy and envelope-pushing as her pop music contemporaries, Selena Gomez reveals a still-sultry but more contemplative side in the new visuals for ‘Same Old Love’ which debuted exclusively on Apple Music.
This time around, she picked one of the industry’s heavyweight as her director, Michael Haussman (Kanye West’s “Jesus Walks,” Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack”) and the narrative is quite enthralling especially as the backstory is widely know; it was shot on location in L.A. at Palace Theatre where she performed for a select audience of fans i.e. Selenators, who, of course, did not know they were in on the filming of a music video. Yes, the excitement in the aftermath was off the charts in social media.
According to People magazine, she herself said of the new single and video, “This song represents the many cycles of love and it was important that the video showed different examples of love. Plus, I got to surprise my fans by including them in it which made it even more special for me.”
The song title itself can evoke a variety of emotional states and reactions from nostalgia and comfort to boredom and even regret. And, too, the lyrics are up for much interpretation. She co-wrote it with her musical collaborator, Charli XCX. Produced by by Benny Blanco and Stargate, it’s got such notable lines as “Take away your things and go / You can’t take back what you said.”
The now-23-year-old former Disney Channel star is on the verge of releasing her second solo studio album, and is building up the anticipation. Finally now, she’s in the news for music instead of for that on-again-off-again relationship with Justin Bieber which, these days, as dueling interviews would indicate is off. Perhaps even for good.
So, fittingly, her new album is ‘Revival,’ and as she herself said at that event — leaving nothing to variant interpretation — “This is a new chapter for me,” Gomez told screaming fans at the Sept. 16 event. “I’m sure most of you know that. You guys have been the most consistent thing in my life and my career. This is all for you.”
