Selena Gomez told fans that her new single would be "perfect for the end of summer," and she was right! On Friday, August 25th, the singer shared her new highly-anticipated song "Single Soon" along with a feel-good music video.
The video starts out with Gomez trying to figure out how to break up with her boyfriend. "Should I do it on the phone?/ Should I leave a little note/ In the pocket of his coat? (Yeah)/ Maybe I'll just disappear/ I don't wanna see a tear/ And the weekend's almost here," she sings as she contemplates. She eventually decides to channel her inner Carrie Bradshaw and leave him a note that says: "I'm sorry. I can't. Don't hate me."
For the rest of the music video, Gomez has a fun night out with her friends and celebrates not having to worry about being in a relationship. "I'm pickin' out this dress/ Tryin' on these shoes/ 'Cause I'll be single soon/ I'll be single soon/ I know he'll be a mess/ When I break the news/ But I'll be single soon/ I'll be single soon," she sings in the chorus.
"Single Soon" marks Selena's first new music of 2023 but it seems like it might be a non-album release. While announcing the song, Selena admitted, "Since I'm not quite done with SG3, I wanted to put out a fun little song I wrote a while back that's perfect for the end of summer." When she does finish her third studio album, it will be the follow-up to 2021's Spanish-language EP Revelación, which earned Selena her first Grammy nomination for Best Latin Pop Album.
