Selena Gomez & Kygo release “It Ain’t Me” | Listen to it here
It was only a matter of time before Kygo earned his full-on pop star credentials and it comes as little surprise that Selena Gomez has helped the tropical house star cross over into the land of milk and honey. His past work has seen commercial and radio success, but the features have been far less star-studded than Gomez and her Disney kid super stardom. “It Ain’t Me” opens with sinewy guitar plucks and Selena Gomez’s pitch perfect vocals before it builds slowly towards a stuttered and subdued breakdown. An even keeled energy moves the mix along, placing it firmly in the running for widespread radio adoption but far from festival stages. There’s a lot to love here, but there’s little that surprises.
