“Come & Get It” has become the biggest hit of Selena Gomez’s young career, and the pop singer recently sat down with Walmart Soundcheck to discuss the process of creating the song with Norwegian production duo Stargate and songwriting powerhouse Ester Dean.
“I’m a huge Stargate fan — I think their beats and what they produce is just gold,” says Gomez. “And Ester Dean is just an incredible vocalist that a lot of people know, but if you actually hear her voice just solely on her own, it’s just stunning, and it’s really haunting.”
Before guiding “Come & Get It” to a No. 6 peak on the Hot 100 chart, Stargate previously helmed tracks like Ne-Yo’s “So Sick,” Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In The World)” and Katy Perry’s “Firework,” among many others. Dean, meanwhile, has co-penned hits by David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson and Rihanna, in addition to her own solo work. The combination of Gomez, Dean and Stargate was indestructible from the get-go, and “Come & Get It” may help guide Gomez to her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
