Selena Gomez isn’t holding back her feelings in her new single, “Bang Bang Bang!” She bashes her ex-boyfriend and talks up her new man!
Selena Gomez certainly turned a corner from her uplifting and cheerful song, “Who Says,” in her most recent single “Bang Bang Bang.” For the first time, the 18-year-old beauty lets it rip against her ex-boyfriend and proudly sings about the man in her life — and you’d have to have been living under a rock to not think she’s talking about Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber.
Taking a page from her BFF Taylor Swift, Selena gets sweet revenge on the boy who broke her heart last year. Plus, she brags about her new boyfriend and even sings about his “swagger.” (For all of you who don’t obsessively follow teen pop culture, Justin, 17, has a “swagger coach” and is known to discuss his “swagger” abilities.)
Here are some of the more poignant lyrics:
My new boy used to be a model, he looks way better than you, he looks way better than you
His love is deeper you know. He’s a real keeper you know.
My new boy knows the way I want it.
He’s got more swagger than you, he’s got more swagger than you do.
He’s not hiding me
He’s showing me off you know?
When Nick and Selena dated, it always seemed like he was nervous to show her off. Plus, she was constantly being compared to his ex-girlfriend and first love, Miley Cyrus. Justin, on the other hand, treats Selena like a princess and isn’t afraid to be seen affectionately in public with her, nor to talk about how amazing she is. They’ve even gone on vacations all around the world together!
Regardless of who the song is actually about, I can’t help but love the beat. It has an electronic sound that we haven’t heard much from Selena before. After her success with “Who Says,” there’s no doubt in my mind “Bang Bang Bang” will be a hit in the clubs this summer.
Selena’s full album, “When the Sun Goes Down,” drops June 28.
