Selena Gomez insisted having a girlfriend was “nowhere near the top” of her priority list.
The ‘Lose You to Love Me’ singer stressed that her new song ‘Boyfriend’, written long before the coronavirus pandemic shook the world and the focus now is on “safety, unity and recovery” for everyone.
He said on Instagram: “Many of you know how excited I am to release a song called ‘Boyfriend.’ This is a light song about falling and rising again many times in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy.
“We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in today’s context, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is not near the top of my priority list. Like the rest of the world, I pray for safety, unity and recovery during this pandemic. “
‘Boyfriend’ will appear in the new deluxe version of Selena’s album, ‘Rare’ – which will also feature two other new songs, ‘She’ and ‘Souvenir’, and Selena plans to mark the release of the recording on April 9 with a donation to the PLUS1 Relief Fund COVID-19, as well as giving $ 1 from each LP order through his own shop to the organization.
He wrote: “Because of that, I personally contributed to the COVID-19 Plus 1 relief fund and donated $ 1 from each order in my official store to the fund from now on. Rare (Deluxe), featuring ‘Boyfriend’ is coming out April 9th.”
PLUS1 COVID-19 Fund helps musicians and music industry workers affected by the pandemic, as well as those whose physical and mental health, safety and well-being are most at risk as a result.
Last week, the 27-year-old star announced part of the proceeds from her new ‘Dance Again’ merchandise to be donated to the COVID-19 Relief Fund.
