My new single of the week is the sexy 'Good For You' by Selena Gomez featuring A$AP Rocky.
This isn't my usual sort of choice of song. Selena Gomez is also a star I've not usually had any particular taste for. Until I heard this song.
This single hooked me in on first hearing. I had no idea who sang it, but spent all day breathily singing it. Its that good. And its also extremely sexy.
Selena Gomez. Yes, she of Justin Bieber gf, and also friend of Taylor Swift. All American sweetheart of TV and film. She also sings, a fact I was unaware of previously!
Clearly she is now all grown up and this song seems set to put her firmly on the map as a sexy lady. The video is hot hot hot. She writhes around, in assorted outfits, rocking a jeans and T-shirt combo in the way only the young can do. Its pretty much just her looking amazing.
'Good For You' is from her second album 'Revival' released in 2015. It was the lead single and is also a step away from her pop tastic previous efforts, and a much more adult song. Its slow paced, a bit R&B a little bit blues, and just catchy as hell.
She breathes "Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight; Do my hair up real, real nice; And syncopate my skin to your heart beating". It seems to me to be all about pleasing her partner. But in a way she enjoys. The contribution from A$AP Rocky takes this from a breathy affair to more cool edgy stuff. I love the collaboration, although its an unusual and unexpected one!
I am probably not her target audience, but nevertheless I love this song. Go take a listen, and let me know what you think.
