Yesterday, June 4th, Selena Gomez announced via Twitter that her upcoming music video would arrive sooner than fans anticipated. And today, June 5th, Gomez officially dropped the video for “Back To You.” Having already garnered just under 500,000 views in mere hours, the video has Gomez fans shook and sharing mega love for their queen.
“Back To You,” which is featured on the 13 Reasons Why Season 2 soundtrack, is suspected by some fans to be about Gomez’s on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber. And the video doesn’t exactly disprove that theory. Gomez’s onscreen love interest is blonde with that classic Bieber cut. And the end of the video suggests that the plot is an endless cycle, seemingly similar to Jelena. But again, we have no way of knowing for sure.
The video was shot like a vintage foreign flick, subtitles and all. It’s a perfect mashup of the 1960 Jean-Luc Godard classic Breathless and Netflix’s broody-yet-heartfelt End of the F***king World. Like Gomez’s video for “Bad Liar,” “Back To You” is plot-driven and follows a quirky couple after they meet at a party, steal a car, and end up on the lam.
It’s a must-watch for both Gomez fans and for anyone who appreciates a solid music vid.
And according to those on Twitter, the “Back To You” video is everything Gomez lovers wanted and more.
The “Back To You” video is both funny and soulful, and perfectly encapsulates the essence of Selena Gomez. And yes, we will be watching this video on repeat for the rest of the day. Please do not disturb.
