It may have taken Selena Gomez some time to put out a new album — but it was worth the wait. The “Love You Like A Love Song” songstress dropped her first album in five years, Rare, on Friday. As an additional pre-weekend treat, she shared the music video of the album’s title track.
On Instagram, Gomez reflected on the video, sharing content from the day they filmed it.
In the first image of the four-shot set, the “Back to You” hitmaker stunned in a low-cut nude-colored vest top that appeared to be skintight. The garment was embroidered with small rhinestones, which sparkled in the light. Gomez — who sported a full fringe and shoulder-length brunette hair with light brown highlights — raised both her arms in the shot, posing in front of a clear blue sky while looking to her left. Gomez opted for no accessories in the shot.
In the second snap, Gomez was photographed lying down. The “Look at Her Now” chart-topper was surrounded by flowers and lush, green foliage as she rocked a dress with a thigh-high slit. Gomez looked directly at the camera with a smile for the photo.
The last photo of the set appeared to show Gomez having her hair and makeup done as she prepared for the video shoot. She looked cozy in a thick, long-sleeved jumper. She stuck her tongue out at the camera.
In the span of 50 minutes, her post racked up more than 2 million likes and over 16,500 comments, proving it to be popular with her 165.4 million followers.
“YOU’RE THE MOST MAGICAL HUMAN BEING EVER,” one user wrote passionately in capital letters.
“I am so proud of you I love you so much Sel,” another shared.
“I feel so grateful to stan and admire such a beautiful soul like yours. Please don’t ever let anyone put that beautiful and amazing smile down. You’re the only source of positivity in my life. Thank you thank you thank you. I love you,” a third fan remarked.
“I LOVED THE VIDEO, SELENA YOU ARE THE QUEEN OF VISUALS FR. Love you,” a fourth follower commented, adding multiple love heart emoji.
Within two hours of premiering the video, “Rare” has been watched over half a million times on Gomez’s official YouTube account.
Rare is Gomez’s first album since 2015’s Revival. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, her fanbase — also known as “Selenators” — reacted to the album very positively via social media.
