Selena Gomez surprises fans with 'special gift' track & video

Last update: 25/10/2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 – Just 24 hours after the release of her first solo single for 2019, “Lose You To Love Me”, Selena Gomez has gifted fans with a second new song titled “Look At Her Now.”

Fans were taken by surprise when the singer, who has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with another singer-songwriter, Justin Bieber, released the bonus song with video, which unlike emotional ballad “Lose You to Love Me”, is futuristic and upbeat.

She dedicated the song to fans via an Instagram message, saying: “And here’s my special gift to all of my ride or dies! I created this with Apple especially for you. Y’all have been through it all with me and I thank you for pushing me to be the best. Look At Her Now is out now. #ShotOniPhone.”

The song was co-written with Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter and Ian Kirkpatrick.

“I felt having these two songs released back to back completed the story of how one can rise no matter what challenges life brings,” the 27-year-old added.

After its Oct 24 midnight release, Look At Her Now garnered four million YouTube views in less than six hours.

After its release on Oct 23, the singer’s black-and-white Lose You To Love Me video achieved more than 24 million views.

Fans have responded positively to her new tracks:

“I’m so proud of you. Authenticity and strength is unmatched. No more self-doubt or pain, nope. You deserve this and I love you,” wrote Britanny.

“Of course she is sad, but now she is glad, she dodged a bullet,” wrote Imsu Kr.

“I love her storytelling skills, the song’s absolutely smashinggggggg,” said Zu sy.
