Selena Gomez's 'Boyfriend' Video Involves a Bunch of Frogs and It's Pure Art

Selena Gomez premiered the music video for her new single "Boyfriend" on Friday (April 10), and it lives up to the old adage that you have to kiss a few frogs before finding your prince.

In the clip directed by Matty Peacock, the pop star takes her destiny into her own hands, employing a magic potion to weed out the dating duds in her search for her perfect match.

"I want a boyfriend/ But I just keep hitting dead ends/ Try to take a shortcut, but I get cut/ Again and again/ I want a boyfriend/ Tell me, are there any good ones left?/ I keep findin' wrong ones, but I want love/ Again and again/ I want a boyfriend," Gomez intones over the track's bouncing bass line as, one by one, her roster of suitors turns into an army of ribbit-ing amphibians.

"Boyfriend" serves as the opening track of the brand-new deluxe edition of Rare, which also features previously unreleased songs "Souvenir" and "She," alongside No. 1 single "Lose You To Love Me," "Look At Her Now" and the title track.
