Selena Gomez‘s new single “Good For You” features A$AP Rocky, but its music video does not feature the New York rap star — or anyone aside from Gomez, for that matter. The sensual single’s “initial stripped down version” is featured in the clip, as Gomez tweeted on Friday (June 26), and the pop star commands the straightforward clip.
Gomez is shown lying around in various positions, seemingly waiting for that special someone to whom she can coo, “Make you never wanna leave/So don’t… so don’t.” The video later moves to a shower scene, then to a warehouse where Gomez is towering over the camera, and then to a few other sequences in which the singer can writhe around and exhibit her inner longing. One can understand why the “Good For You” video, directed by Sophie Muller, does not work conceptually with an A$AP Rocky appearance, and why Gomez had to take this heat-filled clip on herself.
“Good For You” was released earlier this week, and previews Gomez’s follow-up to 2013’s Stars Dance. In February, Gomez’s Zedd collaboration “I Want You To Know” was released, and the single became a Top 20 hit on the Hot 100 chart.
