Selena Gomez and "Love On"

  • Selena Gomez and "Love On"

    27 FEB 2024 · Selena Gomez Spreads Self-Love Message With New Single “Love On” Pop superstar Selena Gomez recently dropped an empowering new single titled “Love On” as she gears up to release her highly anticipated third solo studio album. Produced by renowned hitmaker Ian Kirkpatrick, “Love On” marks a musical departure from Gomez’s previous dance-pop sounds, opting for mellow R&B sonics instead. Lyrically, the breakup anthem champions walking away from unhealthy relationships to choose self-love and independence. Both thematically and sonically, “Love On” showcases the artistic evolution and renewal for Gomez after a difficult few years of health struggles. The affirming track lays the groundwork for her next musical era rooted in confidence and joy. Selena Gomez’s Tumultuous Years Preceding New Music Since rocketing to fame first as a Disney star and later as a chart-topping pop album artist, Selena Gomez has endured her share of challenges alongside success. After releasing two hit albums Kiss & Tell and Revival between 2009-2015, Gomez took a step back from music as she battled anxiety, depression and complications from lupus, an autoimmune disease that required a life-saving kidney transplant in 2017. She re-emerged triumphantly in 2020 with her acclaimed album Rare which documented her path to overcoming heartbreak. But soon after, the pandemic derailed touring plans just as Gomez began experiencing bipolar disorder symptoms. After four years since her last album, Gomez is now healthier and ready to create again on her terms. “Love On” kicks off her next chapter with themes of resilience and self-reliance. Maturing Sound and Outlook “Love On” represents a sonic maturation for Selena Gomez, veering away from the dance-pop production that dominated her past discography. Co-written by Gomez with hitmakers Amy Allen, Jonathan Bellion and Ian Kirkpatrick, the midtempo R&B ballad relies on subtle beats, delicate keys and snappy finger snaps. The laidback arrangement lets Gomez’s smoky, evocative vocals shine. Lyrically, “Love On” finds Gomez affirming choosing herself first after a failed romance singing: “No more waiting for the words, so called lеtting go... I know I'll bе okay even though it hurts”. The introspective, self-assured tone echoes Gomez entering a new artistic era defined by authenticity instead of chasing mainstream hits. “Love On” sets the stage for more vulnerability and sonic exploration. Empowering Self-Love Theme True to its title, “Love On” celebrates leaving behind negative relationships to prioritize loving yourself. Gomez explained it was inspired by her learning to end unhealthy patterns. Instead of reconciliation, the lyrics champion independence and inner resolve with uplifting refrain, “I'm gonna love on myself no matter what...Yeah, I'm gonna love on myself”. Written amidst the pandemic, the theme reflects Gomez emerging stronger by nurturing her wellbeing versus seeking validation externally. It promotes self-care both mentally and physically. For fans, “Love On” provides an inspirational anthem for embracing self-worth and freedom. Gomez role models prioritizing inner peace and joyful independence. Artistic Growth Through Music Video The music video for “Love On” further expands the track’s message through impressionistic visuals. It depicts Gomez lounging carefree in natural settings like fields and rivers, emphasizing themes of pastoral rebirth. The dreamlike visuals convey the euphoria of releasing anxiety to be present. Vibrant sun-soaked colors and Gomez’s unencumbered dancing represent lightness she’s found by loving herself first. The entire video channels cathartic emotional liberation in line with the song. By artistically rendering the feeling versus literally interpreting the lyrics, the video treatment shows Gomez’s creative maturation as both singer and filmmaker. Mainstream Success and Fan Praise Following its September 2022 release, “Love On” immediately resonated with pop listeners. It debuted at #1 on iTunes in multiple countries and entered Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Critics praised the relatable self-love theme and Gomez’s effortless, emotive vocals calling it a triumphant musical comeback. Fans celebrated the return of vulnerability seen in her 2015 album Revival. On social media, supporters voiced how the empowering lyrics encouraged them to put their needs first too. They applauded Gomez for once again leveraging music to offer hope during trying times in the world. Based on initial reception, “Love On” succeeds in marking an exciting new creative chapter for Selena Gomez rooted in confidence and healing. Follow-Up to Critically Acclaimed Album Rare “Love On” has built momentum as the first single from Gomez’s upcoming third studio album, following 2020's acclaimed Rare. Her previous effort earned Gomez her first #1 Billboard album debut thanks to the record-breaking singles “Lose You To Love Me” and “Look At Her Now.” Rare gave fans a cathartic deep-dive into her emotional state post-breakup, showcasing stirring vulnerability. By contrast, “Love On” presents Gomez content and in control after doing the inward work Rare initiated. She has found fulfillment on her own terms. Longtime fans recognize Gomez is entering a happier phase paralleled by her optimistic musical outlook. They eagerly await a full album continuing these positive narratives. Signaling New Era of Selena Gomez Music Throughout her career evolution from child star to pop sensation, Selena Gomez has grown immensely as an artist and person. “Love On” demonstrates this maturity in both substance and style. The track establishes a more sophisticated sonic direction guided by raw lyricism instead of chasing hits. It also sets the stage for more honesty in her music as Gomez focuses on emotional health and self-discovery. Whereas past albums centered romantic relationships, heartbreak and healing, her next record has potential to explore self-love, resilience and identity now that Gomez has become grounded in who she is. “Love On” suggests audiences can expect more genre-spanning versatility, vulnerable storytelling and messages of empowerment when Gomez’s new album arrives. The era is distinctly hers to own and promises to reveal even more artistic facets of this multifaceted star. Global Pop Stardom Through Multifaceted Pursuits Beyond just music, Selena Gomez remains one of the most influential all-around entertainers of her generation based on her diverse creative résumé: - Actress – Gomez first drew fans as a Disney Channel sitcom star before expanding into grittier film roles in projects like Spring Breakers and The Dead Don't Die. Upcoming releases include the mystery thriller Dollhouse. - Producer – She produces the hit Netflix teen drama 13 Reasons Why and comedy series Only Murders in the Building starring Steve Martin. - Entrepreneur – Gomez founded the successful makeup brand Rare Beauty focused on celebrating uniqueness and mental health. - Activist – She uses her voice to advocate for causes like immigrant rights and mental health access through campaigns like the Rare Impact Fund. - Social Media Mogul – With over 350 million collective followers, Gomez is the most-followed woman in the world on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook and Twitter. Her commitment to acting, producing and activism beyond music solidifies Gomez as a multi-hyphenate pop culture icon. “Love On” hints at more creative fruits soon to come from this diverse star. Conclusion With vulnerable new single “Love On,” Selena Gomez declares she’s entered a confident new era defined by self-love and personal fulfillment. The midtempo ballad champions emotional independence through a relatable, healing lens that resonates widely with fans. Both the track and accompanying video usher in artistic rebirth and promise even more expressive, empowering music is coming soon when Gomez releases her next studio album. “Love On” proves her songwriting continues maturing towards catchy yet substantial pop anthems. As Gomez flourishes across entertainment realms, this latest hit single cements her status as a role model for self-care on your own terms. By loving on herself first, she inspires fans worldwide to nurture their inner joy as well. Gomez continues evolving gracefully into one of music's most compassionate, resilient pop saviors.
