Kygo and Selena Gomez team up for the great kiss-off “It Ain’t Me”

Fresh off the heels of her successful Revival era, one which deftly pushed Selena Gomez from teen star to seasoned vet, the singer teams with producer Kygo for the great “It Ain’t Me.” The track joins the conversation among great recent kiss-off records, from Ariana Grande and Zedd’s “Break Free” to Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” “It Ain’t Me” works thanks to a sincere, warm presence from Gomez, where instead of angrily lashing out at her ex, she’s comforted in having the upper hand. An acoustic guitar opens the song, a not-so-subtle nod to her ex Bieber’s “Love Yourself,” before the song opens up to Kygo’s lightweight production and Gomez’s infectious performance. “Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning,” she sings on the hook, less as a question than as a reminder of what her ex is missing. “It ain’t me,” she casually smirks. On to the next one.
