The saxophone-spike, low-key dance track finds Gomez singing mostly in Spanish, admitting some jealous feelings in intro, where she sings, “Nadie tiene que decírmelo/ Hablas con otra que no soy yo/ Y te confieso que viéndolo/ Baby, me dan ganas de tenerte,” which translates into, “No one has to tell me/ You talk to someone else who is not me/ And I confess that seeing it/ Baby, it makes me want to have you.” (Via Google Translate.)
Gomez expands on her love obsession in the pre-chorus, singing, “Just a little crush/ Got me over here thinkin’/ “Does somebody else care, somebody else care?”/ I know we got trust/ But you be gettin’ me thinkin’/ “Does somebody else care, somebody else care?” before the sax attack begins.
The song will appear on Sel’s upcoming seven-song Revelación EP (March 12). The project will be Gomez’s first all-Spanish release, and will feature the previously-released singles “Baila Conmigo” (“Dance With Me”) with Puerto Rican rapper/singer Rauw Alejandro, as well as “De Una Vez” (“At Once”), a collab with Puerto Rican rapper/singer Myke Towers on “Dámelo To” (“Give it To Me”) and the songs “Buscando Amor” (“Searching For Love”), “Vicio” (“Vice”) and “Adios” (“Goodbye”).
The chilled-out, island vibe jam is the follow-up to Selena’s 2018 collab with Snake on “Taki Taki,” which also Cardi B and Ozuna.
