New music from Selena Gomez is almost here — and you won’t have to wait until the release of her album ‘Revival’ to hear it! The singer announced her new single ‘Same Old Love’ on Aug. 5…and we’re already so psyched! But could it be about her on-and-off boyfriend, Justin Bieber?
We still can’t get Selena Gomez’s first summer single “Good For You” out of our heads, and as it continues to climb its way up the charts, the 23-year-old is already making plans for the song’s follow-up! She attended the iHeartMedia Music Summit on Aug. 5, and played media executives her next single, “Same Old Love,” from the upcoming album Revival.
It hasn’t been revealed when the song will be released, but can you believe it’s already been a month and a half since we first heard “Good For You?!” We certainly wouldn’t be surprised if this new track comes before the end of the month, giving it that same amount of time to gain traction before Revival hits stores on Oct. 9.
We can already tell from “Good For You” that Selena’s new music will feature a more grown up sound, and we’re loving the direction she’s headed. “Selena’s voice sounds amazing and her new album will be much different that the Disney sound she’s done in the past,” the singer’s vocal coach, Stevie Mackey, told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “This album will be more adult, more feminine and more about Selena’s experiences. She’s recorded a lot of new songs at this point and she sounds beautiful.”
Is ‘Same Old Love’ About Justin Bieber?
Despite breaking up in 2012, Selena and her ex, Justin Bieber, 21, have been spotted together on multiple occasions, even indulging in some PDA more than once. Somehow, they always seem to come back to each other, so it doesn’t seem too far off that the title “Same Old Love” might have something to do with the back-and-forth relationship, right? We’ll have to wait until the lyrics come out to get a better idea, but it definitely wouldn’t be surprising if the Biebs provided a lot of inspiration for Selena’s new stuff.
Selena has been working so hard on this new music — she even took a trip to Mexico in April with songwriter and producer friends — and she’s made it clear that it’s something she’s proud of. Meanwhile, we’ll be patiently waiting for “Same Old Love” to grace our ears!
