Marshmello drops ‘Wolves’ with Selena Gomez
Following “It Ain’t Me“, her successful hit alongside Norwegian Tropical House pioneer Kygo, Selena Gomez is dipping her feet into the dance music world once again with a collaboration titled ‘Wolves‘ with American DJ/Producer Marshmello. The DJ, whose anonymity was accidentally disclosed by Forbes, recently finished 10th in DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 poll, and played a spectacular show at London’s Ministry of Sound.
‘Wolves’ has a dark and gloomy opening as Selena Gomez sings about a “heavy blue,” accurately portraying the song’s overall demeanor. While the build before the bridge is almost country-pop, the choral hook has Marshmello written all over it, drawing similarities with his famous hit ‘Alone‘. While the production definitely has Marshmello’s stamp on it, the rest centers around Gomez’s vocal strength and weeping guitar chords.
The track encompasses a mix of emotions from melancholy to hope, and Gomez said in a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, that the lyrics mirror feelings and experiences she was going through when she recorded it. The track differs with most releases on the radio, a definite autumnal anthem.
