“Come & Get It” is a song recorded by Selena Gomez. The track written by Ester Dean and produced by Stargate is confirmed as the first single and is a really “good taste” of her upcoming third studio album “Stars Dance” to follow and it’s a fun “pop-electro” dance track that’s scheduled for release on July 23. The single was released on digital retailers on April 7th, 2013. Selena performed the song for the first time at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14. Followed by Ellen on April 16.
She also confirmed that the album will be the first to launch without the help of her band “The Scene”. They have decided to take separate paths. Therefore, the album will release under the name of Selena Gomez and it’s scheduled for release during the summer via Hollywood Records. Among the songs that may be included on the album will be the long-awaited re-worked version of the song “My Dilemma” under the name “My Dilemma 2.0” and will feature American rapper Flo Rida. This was confirmed in mid-July this year by the American producers Tim James and Antonina Armato, known as Rock Mafia. Not confirmed if this new version finally serve as a future promotional single.
The album will also feature productons of their usual producer Toby Glad, responsible for the songs “A Year Without Rain” from their second album and also “Bang Bang Bang” and “We Own the Night“ from their latest album. Selena has listed Skrillex as one of the album’s biggest influences.
The production of the single starts off foggy and in the distance, escalating as Selena’s crystal clear voice sings, “This love will be the death of me, but I know, I’ll die happily“. Intense emotions to match the intense jungle, reggae-Bollywood-electronic-synth-beat! The song is pretty good and a big step for Selena to become a pop super star a perfect mix between hindú vibe, a little dubstep touch and pop. You can see the style of Rihanna in the track. I guess because it’s produced by the creators of hits like “S&M“, “Only Girl (In the World)“, “What’s My Name?” or “Rude Boy“. One thing is clear, in Selena’s world the normal thing is the monotony on re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat, and doesn’t miss the opportunity with the lyrics of this new single: “When you are rea-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh, when you are rea-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh” and the following and catchy “nana na nana na na, nana na nana na na”. God bless you Se-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-elena! Your new style after Spring Breakers is perfect. So… if you’re ready, come and get it NOW!
The music video directed by Anthony Mandler was premiered on VEVO on May 7. In the video Selena looks spectacularly beautiful. Playing with the elements of nature: earth, water, wind and fire, Gomez aims to connect the earthly with the sensory with one of her best videos in her career. Pleasantly surprised with the investment that Hollywood Records is doing with she and this new single.
On April 14th, Selena performed for the first time on TV the single on the 2013 MTV Movie Awards that was held in Sony Pictures Studios (Los Angeles, California) and was hosted by Rebel Wilson.
The singer also performed the single at Radio Disney Awards that was held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. in Los Angeles on April 27. The full performance was posted on VEVO on May 6.
