Selena Gomez Releases ‘Boyfriend’ Video From Rare (Deluxe) Album
In the video which was directed by Matty Peacock, the singer can be seen trying it all to get a boyfriend. Her journey in this quest is akin to kissing a lot of frogs, until finding the right one.
“I want a boyfriend/ But I just keep hitting dead ends/
I want a boyfriend/ Tell me, are there any good ones left?”
The video for Boyfriend gets its backstory from the movie, ‘hustlers’. Selena can be seen dating multiple guys and spiking their drinks. Side effects, is that you turn into a frog or lose your mind.
We also see scenes of Selena driving into the night bedecked in luxurious outfits.
On April 9th, Selena dropped the deluxe version of her Rare album to the delight of fans. It contained some previously unreleased tracks, like ‘Souvenir’ and ‘She’.
In a written letter to fans, she let them know how she felt about the release of the project.
“Many of you know how excited I have been to release a song called ‘Boyfriend,’” . “It’s a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy. We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities. Just like the rest of the world, I’m praying for safety, unity and recovery during this pandemic.”
