Selena Gomez performed a stripped-down, acoustic version of her song “Rare” at Los Angeles’ Village Studios. Her album Rare was released in January, debuting at Number One on Rolling Stone‘s Top 200 Albums chart.
The clip begins with Gomez joking around, doing a jaunty rendition of “Rare” before officially launching into the song. She is joined by a guitarist and a back-up singer, all seated on stools in the studio. She delivers the song with frequent stares down the barrel of the camera to further emphasize the song’s message: She won’t wait for a neglectful partner to realize she’s special.
On Friday, Gomez dropped the digital version of “Feel Me,” which had appeared on vinyl versions of Rare as a bonus track. Gomez began teasing her third LP late last year with back-to-back releases of ballad “Lose You to Love Me” and clubby “Look at Her Now.” On the day of her album release, she unveiled a rainbow-hued video for “Rare,” the album’s latest single.
