I think we are flodded by female artists with a very similar sound.

Tinashe, Selena, Demi, Ellie

These songs are not bad, but somehow don't get me.
And I liked it..

This has to be the first Selena Gomez track I've ever liked :-)

Then you clearly haven't  heard "Slow Down" or "See The Day". Two really good pop songs I love from her!

Unfortunately, I am not liking this Max sound lately. He just doesn't jaw-drop anymore.

The album leaked.

I didn't like the Max Martin cowritten that much.

I couldn't help myself and listened to the album.

Hands To Myself - Jesus, the production is amazing. Those 'Mattman & Robin' guys are something else.

Haven't heard it yet, but these lyrics are fantastic!

we know she's not the greatest singer, but i really dig the "closeness" she sings to the mic. highly compressed. it works for her cuz she doesn't have to do much vocally.

the title track is really good too. i like the vibrato she does once in a while. more subtle vocal stuff.

I thought the same thing when I first listened: she sounds good, better than any of her records.
I heard some melismas and I was impressed. I think she sounds better because she's involved and knows her capabilities.

Added "Hands to myself" to the "Cheiron Brand New" Spotify playlist. It think it's really boring.

  Loved reading the lyrics yesterday, just listened now, and agree with you Turnaround. The vocal delivery and sound in general is interesting and different, but the actual melodies?  Dull, to me.

Selena is featured on a Charlie Puth record co written by J Kash -which is always a good thing, such a great topliner!-.
I don't like the production -handled by Puth himself- but the topline is really good.

I was hoping Max's contribution to the album would have been better. Due to her paper thin vocals, Selena needs the Britney vocal treatment, ie lots of background vocalists mixed in. Take the songs on Femme Fatale as an example. At most Britney's solo voice is only heard for 3 seconds before a background vocals pipes in.
