STORY OF SONG
“Look At Her Now” is American singer/songwriter/actress’ Selena Gomez’s second single of the year. It was a released a day after her first single “Lose You To Love Me”, as well as an accompanying video for the track.
“Look At Her Now” was written by Gomez, her fellow musician and friend Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter and Ian Kirkpatrick. It has a much more upbeat and dance-pop feel to the track, in comparison to “Lose You Love Me” where it heavily featured choir vocals. “Look At Her Now” focuses on becoming a stronger person after a toxic and turbulent relationship (in this context it is Gomez’ on and off 10 year relationship with singer Justin Bieber). The background vocals were also sung by Julia Michaels.
The music video was released alongside the track on the 24th October 2019. Akin to the “Lose You To Love Me” video, it was directed by Sophie Muller and filmed entirely on an iPhone 11 Pro, acting as an advertisement and/or promotional video for the company and their product. It features Gomez in a mirrored room dancing with other female dancers who are all dressed similarly, as well as Gomez in a disco like top surrounded by pink silk. The video currently has over 50 million views as of the end of October 2019.
