Selena Gomez – Good for You (feat. A$AP Rocky) download mp3
“Good for You” is the lead single from American singer Selena Gomez’s second studio album, Revival (2015). It features vocals by American rapper ASAP Rocky. The song was written by Gomez, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, ASAP Rocky, Hector Delgado, and its producers Nick Monson and Nolan Lambroza. Originally, the track was conceived by the writers in 45 minutes, during a session booked by the latter.
The singer then received the song through the trio’s A&R and was entirely involved in its creative session, helping to develop it as a representation of her process of self-realization, her confidence as a young woman, and her feelings of vulnerability. After it was reworked by Lambroza, she sent the song to Rocky, who added new instruments and co-produced it with his frequent collaborator Hector Delgado, who was in charge of Rocky’s vocal production.
After anticipation by Gomez, “Good for You” was digitally released on June 22, 2015 by Interscope and Polydor Records, serving as Revival’s lead single as well as the first song by the singer to be released through those labels.
A torch song, it is a pop and electro-R&B slow jam with hip hop elements that comprises a mellow, low-key snap-drop hip hop beat reminiscent of modern, pitched-down Southern hip hop productions, minor sound bursts, percussion instrumentation, drum machines, airy and transparent synthesizer, and a minimalistic bass. Gomez sings atypically with breathy vocals and a plaintive timbre in the track, which was noted for being her first collaboration with a rapper.
Its come-hither lyrics have intensity, psychodrama, self-confidence, and female empowerment as main themes, dealing with pleasing her lover and being the perfect complement for him. Rocky raps his verse at the end of the song, which is written from a male, player perspective and features braggadocio, profanity, and sexual innuendos.
