Selena Gomez set about distancing herself from the shackles of Disney innocence and purity five years ago with the release of Revival. That process was slowed down by struggles with anxiety and depression, a withdrawal from public life and complications with lupus which led to her having a kidney transplant in 2017. That same year she released a few standalone singles, including the incredible Bad Liar, a hint at what was to come.
Now, here we are at the start of 2020 with Selena physically and emotionally well and delivering what will surely be one on the pop albums of the year. Dismiss this as throwaway teeny pop at your peril.
