Song of the Day #2,596: ‘Good For You’ – Selena Gomez feat. A$AP Rocky

selena_gomezTaylor Swift’s inescapable ‘Bad Blood’ sits at #9 on Billboard’s Hot 100. When I first heard that song on 1989, it stood out as by far the worst song on the album. I never imagined it could be a hit, let alone this massive a hit. Go figure.

Rounding out the top ten is a track by one of Taylor’s besties, Selena Gomez. ‘Good For You’ is Gomez’s sexy “I’m no longer a Disney girl” song, following in the tradition of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus.

Cyrus is the most extreme, and arguably the most successful, example of a former teen starlet making that transition.

Gomez is cursed (or blessed) with a young girl’s face. She’ll look 18 when she’s 45. That kind of works against her in this bid for an adult audience.

That said, this song isn’t bad.

[Verse 1: Selena Gomez]
I’m on my 14 carats
I’m 14 carat
Doing it up like Midas
Now you say I got a touch
So good, so good
Make you never wanna leave
So don’t, so don’t

[Pre-Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to your heart beating

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you
I just wanna look good for you, good for you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you

[Verse 2: Selena Gomez]
I’m on my marquise diamonds
I’m a marquise diamond
Could even make that Tiffany jealous
You say I give it to you hard
So bad, so bad
Make you never wanna leave
I won’t, I won’t

[Pre-Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to how you’re breathing

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you
I just wanna look good for you, good for you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you

[Bridge: Selena Gomez]
Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I

[Verse 3: A$AP Rocky]
Hold on, take a minute, love
Cause I ain’t trying to mess your image up
Like we mess around in triple cuffs
Stumble ’round town, pull your zipper up
Pants sag like I don’t give a
I ain’t trying to mess your business up
And I ain’t trying to get you into stuff
But the way you touchin’ on me in the club
Rubbin’ on my miniature
John Hancock, the signature
Any time I hit it, know she finna fall through
And every time we get up, always end up on the news
Ain’t worried bout no press and ain’t worried bout the next chick
They love the way you dress and ain’t got shit up on you
Jackpot, hit the jackpot
Just met a bad miss without the ass shots
You look good, girl, you know you did good, don’t you?
You look good, girl, bet it feel good, don’t it?

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you
Baby, let me be good to you, good to you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you

[Outro: Selena Gomez]
Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I

    Another mid-tempo pop song with a featured rap break. Nothing special here.
