Selena Gomez’s song “Me and the Rhythm” is the third song released from her new album Revival. This song is definitely more fun and upbeat than her last two, “Good for you” and “Same Old Love,” which are intimate and lean on past relationships.
The song has a tropical beat to it that carries throughout, giving a relaxed and comfortable vibe. At the same time, it’s a perfect song to dance to and play when you have to get things done. The lyrics are honest and affectionate, revealing more of her new tone for the Revival album.
Anyone who has a love for music can agree to Gomez’s lyrics “the rhythm takes you over, takes you to a different place.” “Me and the Rhythm” shows her passion for making music and left fans (Selenators) desperate to hear the full album.
Selena announced on Instagram that she will be having a Revival world tour in 2016, but the album was released on Oct. 9. “Me and the Rhythm” is obviously autotuned (like every song nowadays) and Selena reaches pitches she’s never attempted so far, so many people are eager to see how she will perform the song live. In saying this, Selena has been stepping out of her comfort zone and surprising many critics on her vocals.
“I know that I’m not the world’s greatest singer, but I do know that I have a unique tone,” said Selena talking about her new album. She has proven before that her voice is strong and when she’s got catchy, fun songs, how she reaches a certain pitch will not determine whether or not her performance was good.
“Me and the Rhythm” is bound to make it on the top song charts and is already on iTunes’ “Hot Tracks.” I love the song, and think it will make a great addition to Revival. However, there is one thing to be wary of on this song. Once you hear it, you won’t be able to get the rhythm out of your head.
