Seleners gives the world another “Back to You” song
It’s been seven months since Selena Gomez has given the world any sort of music. That song was a banger with Marshmello called “Wolves.” Now, Selena has released a pre-order track off of the soundtrack for the second season of “13 Reasons Why.”
“Back to You” is a classic Selena Gomez pop song. It’s similar to the last couple of songs she has done with Kygo, Zedd, Marshmello, and her debut solo album “Stars Dance.” It starts off with a very nice acoustic guitar melody before kicking into EDM mode with the chorus. The guitar during the entire song is everything. It adds more depth to the song that the EDM wouldn’t have given it. It makes “Back to You” more emotional.
The lyrics are about going back to a love constantly. Let’s just address the muscular and ripped Elephant in the room whose penis we have all saw. Many people believe that the song is about Justin Drew Bieber. That is right, The Jelena Saga continues. If you have lived under a rock since 2010, Selena and Justin have been more off and on than a light switch at a whorehouse. They recently got back together in November 2017 and ended in March 2018. People are thinking the song is about him just because of lyrics of the song. Oy vey. I’m over Jelena. Back to regularly scheduled programming.
“Back to You” isn’t a bad song at all. In fact, it’s a certified bop. My only complaint about it is that seems more like a step back than anything else. If you look like “Bad Liar” and “Fetish,” they are a totally different style than what we got with this song. The new style was everything but this just seemed like she wanted to go back to what made her musically.
Overall, “Back to You” is a catchy and lovely bop that is just in the wheelhouse of Selena. I just wish it was less of classic Selena and more like the Selena we got before her hiatus. I like classic Selena but I liked this new Selena better. She seemed like she gave no fucks.
