Single review: Selena Gomez - Naturally

Selena Gomez

Release date

It's out on 12 April.

The style

Naturally is the hugely catchy debut single from Selena Gomez, who became famous as the lead actress in the hit TV show Wizards of Waverly Place. This song is pure pop and is full of energy from the very beginning.

It's hard not to get swept away by the pounding disco beat, and by the time the chorus kicks in you'll be singing and dancing along to the music!

Selena's debut single is very impressive, she has a great rock-pop sound and with her album coming out in a couple of weeks, we're really excited to hear what else she has to offer.

The words

The song is about meeting someone who is really comfortable in their own skin and she's singing about how happy she is to be with them.

The lyrics are really upbeat and they compliment the music very well.

The chorus is: "You are the thunder and I am the lightning, And I love the way you know who you are, And to me, it's exciting."

This sums up the song, it's all about having the perfect relationship where everything comes naturally!

Will you still be humming it next week?

DEFINITELY! After a couple of listens this catchy tune will get stuck in your head.

Will it make the charts?

Hopefully Selena's single will do well in the charts. It's difficult to predict, as this is her first UK single but she's already an international TV star so that should help her.

The single is brilliant and it deserves to do well in the charts. So fingers crossed chart success will come NATURALLY!
