Selena Gomez premiered the music video for her new single “Boyfriend” on Friday (April 10), and it lives up to the old adage that you have to kiss a few frogs before finding your prince.
In the clip directed by Matty Peacock, the pop star takes her destiny into her own hands, employing a magic potion to weed out the dating duds in her search for her perfect match.
“I want a boyfriend/ But I just keep hitting dead ends/ Try to take a shortcut, but I get cut/ Again and again/ I want a boyfriend/ Tell me, are there any good ones left?/ I keep findin’ wrong ones, but I want love/ Again and again/ I want a boyfriend,” Gomez intones over the track’s bouncing bass line as, one by one, her roster of suitors turns into an army of ribbit-ing amphibians.
“Boyfriend” serves as the opening track of the brand-new deluxe edition of Rare, which also features previously unreleased songs “Souvenir” and “She,” alongside No. 1 single “Lose You To Love Me,” “Look At Her Now” and the title track.
