Selena Gomez‘s search for a boyfriend led her to the studio to record the announcement and include it on the recently released deluxe edition of her latest album, ‘Rare.’
Released Thursday (April 9), Gomez sent fans into a frenzy with news her song – ‘Boyfriend’ – would see its accompanying music video premiered the next day. Dishing on the tune, the singer-actress said:
“It’s a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy. We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is no where near the top of my list of priorities. Just like the rest of the world, I’m praying for safety, unity, and recovery during this pandemic.”
Watch the video inside:
At writing, ‘Boyfriend’ sits in the top 5 of real-time iTunes charts. The premiere of its video should certainly help keep it there, if not lift it higher.
Helping to spell for a handsome entry on the Billboard Hot 100 week after next, an extra incentive for fans to buy is Gomez’s announcement $1 of every order of the LP’s deluxe edition from her official store will go toward coronavirus relief efforts.
