Selena Gomez Debuts Kygo Collaboration, "It Ain't Me"
The much-anticipated tune has finally arrived.
After weeks of Instagram teasing, Kygo and Selena Gomez's much-anticipated collaboration has finally arrived.
In one of her most mature-sounding outings to date, Gomez narrates the story of a love turned sour over alcoholism above strummed guitar chords and Kygo's pulsing piano notes. The Norwegian artist expertly chops up Gomez's verses for the ensuing chord-buoyed builds and drops, which feature his trademark finger-snap claps and tropical pan flute melodies.
Buoyed by Gomez's star power, the natural-sounding number is all but assured to become the 25-year-old producer's biggest Billboard Hot 100 hit to date (surpassing 2015's "Firestone," which peaked at No. 92).
