Selena Gomez Performs ‘Good For You’, Covers MAGIC!’s ‘Rude’ on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge
Selena Gomez just wants to look (and sound) good for you, UK.
While out on her Revival promotional trek across the pond, the singer stopped by BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge studio to perform a live rendition of her latest hit "Good For You," as well as a cover of last year's summer hit, MAGIC!'s "Rude." And she did pretty good!
After a brief introduction — during which she praised her UK band and jokingly explained it was too expensive to import her US band, and confirmed that the album will have both "upbeat songs" and "vibes" type of tracks — Selena launched into her slinky hit. And, although her soft voice was overpowered by the in-studio production, she still sounded every bit as sexy, breathy and vibe-y as the studio version.
"Rude," too, saw Selena's soft voice taken over by the background singers and island vibes of the track. Still, she sounded great! And unlike Ryan Adams' 1989 cover album ("Style," but #nohomo!), Selena had no problem keeping the pronouns of the song as they are. ("I'm gonna marry that girl, marry her anyway!")
