While she’s not quite “pulled a Beyoncé” on us (i.e. dropping a new album digitally and immediately without word), former Disney starlet Selena Gomez has almost done the same, announcing the release of a new best-of album called ‘For You’ later this month.
She did so while premiering the video for lead single ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants’ late last night Australian time.
The song is a gorgeous, moody and pained pop ballad which deals with the emotions of Selena trying to let go of a relationship that’s clearly no good for her. “There’s a million reasons why I should give you up, but the heart wants what it wants,” she sings.
The black and white clip kicks off with a touching bit of vocal acting and there’s more than a few tears throughout as she comes to terms with the fact that things really have to be over. It’s totes emosh.
No word on an Aussie release at this stage, but we presume word will come through for us within days.
