Slow Down - Selena Gomez


The Experience: Rhythm intervention - Selena changes her typical beat. Her goals: party all night, slow down and rewind, and have your body next to mine.   


Music Video: Jumping back and forth between her Paris limo and her dance party, Selena tries to capture everyone's attention between her dance and her body.  


The Meaning of Slow Down: Selena didn't like Lorde stating Selena's Come And Get It wasn't feminist. However, Slow Down's meaning is the same. Lines like "Mr. TSA, I'm ready for inspection" and "I'm accepting applications" don't really disprove Lorde's criticism: women asking men to grope/grab them doesn't help female dignity or feminism.     

Ask Yourself: How far is too far with your boyfriend to have captured your attention?


LYRICS:
Now that I have captured your attention
I want to steal you for a rhythm intervention
Mr. TSA I'm ready for inspection
Show me how you make a first impression

Oh, oh
Can we take it nice and slow, slow
Break it down and drop it low, low
Cause I just wanna party all night in the neon lights 'til you can't let me go

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long
Baby, slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end hit rewind
All night long
Baby, slow down the song

If you want me I'm accepting applications
So long as we keep this record on rotation
You know I'm good with mouth to mouth resuscitation
Breathe me in, breathe me out
So amazing

Oh, oh
Can we take it nice and slow, slow
Break it down and drop it low, low
Cause I just wanna party all night in the neon lights 'til you can't let me go

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long
Baby, slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end hit rewind
All night long
Baby, slow down the song

Breathe me in, breathe me out
The music's got me going
Breathe me in, breathe me out
No stop until the morning
Breathe me in, breathe me out
You know I'm ready for it
For it, for it
Yeah

Breathe me in, breathe me out
The music's got me going
Breathe me in, breathe me out
No stop until the morning
Breathe me in, breathe me out
You know I'm ready for it
For it, for it
Yeah

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long
Baby, slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end hit rewind
All night long
Baby, slow down the song
