Selena Gomez has unveiled her latest single, “Single Soon,” accompanied by its official music video.
Set against an infectious, upbeat melody released this past Friday at midnight, Gomez enthusiastically croons about her eagerness to embrace the single life again, albeit contemplating the best way to part ways with her current beau.
“Should I convey it over a call? Or perhaps a note tucked inside his jacket?” she muses in the song’s introductory verse, crafted under the production prowess of Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat. “Perhaps I’ll vanish without a trace, sparing him the pain, especially with the weekend drawing near.”
Transitioning to the chorus, Gomez confidently declares her readiness for the next chapter, belting out, “Choosing this dress, slipping into these shoes, as I foresee my single status looming.”
The accompanying music video, also released at midnight, commences with Gomez opting for a poignant note for her partner, bearing the message, “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me.” This gesture pays homage to a memorable moment from “Sex and the City,” reminiscent of Jack Berger’s note to Carrie Bradshaw in the iconic season 6 episode, “The Post-It Always Sticks Twice.”
Subsequently, the video transitions to scenes of Gomez preparing for a vibrant evening with her close-knit circle, encompassing lively drinks, spirited dance sequences, and culminating in a refreshing pool plunge, setting the stage for an exhilarating sleepover.
