Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Selena Gomez's single is a little more mature than her previous releases, with some lightly suggestive lyrics ("You got the kind of love that I want, let me get that. And baby once I get it I'm yours, no take backs"). But the track is still pretty clean, skipping any references to drugs or alcohol, violence, or sex, which should make it a hit with older tween and teen fans of the former Disney star.
What's the story?
Selena Gomez tries something new on her single "COME & GET IT," a catchy, electro-tribal pop number with some hints of Bollywood. This track, about enticing a guy to be with her, is a little more suggestive than her post-Disney releases with Selena Gomez and The Scene, but should still be an appropriate choice for older tweens and teens.
Is it any good?
"Come & Get It" has all the makings of a great Rihanna single, featuring her signature tribal rhythm and sound. The problem: It's missing Rihanna. While the beats are infectious, Gomez just doesn't have the vocal chops to hold up during the verses, and mostly just sounds sleepy. While it's nice to see this former Disney star growing up without getting too risque, here's hoping she kicks up the energy on her next single.
