"Come & Get It" (CD Single)



Catchy tribal beats, a bit of innuendo on lame pop track.

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.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about Gomez's growing maturity on this single. Do you think it's OK for her music to get more mature as she gets older?

  • Do you think this song is about Gomez trying to rekindle her relationship with Justin Bieber, as rumors suggest?

This song is terrible and has a bad message for young girls.

Disappointing house track from 'Spring Breakers' star is tainted with sex

"Come & Get It" is a House single by Selena Gomez. The song only has a major issue as far as sexual content. The song is about luring a man to have sex with a woman. The hook has one questionable line, "When you're ready come and get it!" I recommend the single to anyone older than 14.

Try something less inappropriate!

I used to love Selena. She was so innocent. Now, she comes out with this! The lyrics and video are so racy! The only thing good about this is the Indian theme. The Indian-inspired beat is very catchy and clever. However, I would have liked that theme better with less racy lyrics and video. If you ask me, Justin Bieber is a bad influence on her. She used to be so innocent...
