After their hit collaboration Taki Taki, DJ Snake and Selena Gomez have teamed up for ‘Selfish Love’. The music video has been directed by award-winning filmmaker Rodrigo Saavedra, which depicts Gomez as the owner of a colorful, surreal hair salon.
The bilingual single, in Spanish and English, will be included on Gomez’s upcoming Revelación EP, set to release on March 12.
For much of the video, Selena wears an eighties-style floral dress selected by stylist Kate Young, as she operates an eerie beauty parlour, complete with hair curtains, wallpaper clad dancers and singing mannequins.
DJ Snake told Rollingstone, “With the whole world being separated from each other I kept looking and working only on pure good vibes. I wanted to make music for the world and mix all my favorite influences of Afro Beat, Latin music, something that felt grounded and organic.
Selena and I had been talking and after ‘Taki Taki’ we had to give the world another round with fresh summer vibes. Something that made it feel like summer the first time you heard it. ‘Selfish Love’ came very naturally for us and I think it’s the perfect evolution for our history together.”
The single is Gomez’s third Spanish track of the year so far, having kicked things off with ‘De Una Vez’ in January. The song was her first Spanish language single in a decade and was quickly followed by ‘Baila Conmigo’, featuring Rauw Alejandro.
