Selena Gomez & Kygo FINALLY Released That Collab We've All Been Waiting For
Selena Gomez and Kygo’s collaboration— “It Ain’t Me”—has been the centerpiece of conversation since the song’s registration with the ASCAP—The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers—on February 1st.
Gomez continually teased the track’s release, posting an image of herself to her Instagram account— a photograph where Kygo was notably tagged—and uploading several videos of herself lip syncing previously unheard lyrics to what fans supposed to be “It Ain’t Me” on her Instagram story. The same beat of the song that appeared in the background of Selena’s Instagram story likewise appeared in a video posted to Kygo’s Instagram, a confirmation of the duo’s collab.
“It Ain’t Me” has at last dropped, offering fans more than a mere few second Instagram snippet of the song’s beat, a tropical style localized well within Kygo’s deep/tropical wheelhouse. Opening with a soft strumming of a guitar, “It Ain’t Me” is an exposition of Gomez’s throaty vocal range as the singer reflects on involvement with a past lover; “I’ll take with me the polaroids and the memories, but you know I’m gonna leave behind the worst of us,” Gomez declares.
Now that the Gomez/Kygo anticipation has been broken in the most “chill” of manners, “It Ain’t Me” may—at long last—be found below.
