Selena Gomez | Look at Her Now | Single Review
Rating: Thumbs down
Selena Gomez’s new single, “Look at Her Now,” had the potential to be a wonderful tune entailing growth after a tough relationship. Instead, it’s an over auto-tuned nightmare that sounds like it would’ve been produced at the peak of 2011. The lyrics are outrageously bland. Lines such as, “Shiny till it wasn’t, feels good till it doesn’t,” and, “Of course she was sad, but now she’s glad she dodged a bullet,” reek an of angsty teen, not a 27-year-old woman. The beat is repetitive to the point of exhaustion and the constant “mmm mmms” littered throughout the chorus are easily comparable to a child enjoying their favorite snack. Overall, this single is remarkably mediocre.
