Good For You - Selena Gomez ft. A$AP Rocky



The Experience: I just wanna look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh. I just wanna look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh. Let me show you how proud I am to be yours... the pride of belonging to someone can easily turn into submission, subjection and oppression when sex is the key to your relationship.

Music video: The video doesn't feature A$AP Rocky. It's just Selena. Selena in a bathrobe, Selena in the shower, Selena in the rain, Selena in a dress. The setup places the spectator in the role of Selena's boyfriend, with Selena promising to be good to you.

The Meaning of Good For You: Selena Gomez is proud to be yours. But you only get her looks - dress, hair, skin - and her sex - dress on the floor, miniature, John Hancock, get up. Something is missing. Selena defines herself as the jewels she's wearing - I'm 14 carat, I'm a marquise - and her Midas touch is sex-only. What happened to care, to love, to heart, or even just pure emotion? Good For You sinks to the lowest denominator of personal attraction, and stays there. And that's unfortunate, because Selena's new Lorde-like sound goes great with her voice and style. But Good For You's message is the same when you're ready come and get it that Lorde herself criticized so strongly.

Ask yourself: Why is it so easy to reduce love down to looks and sex?

LYRICS:

I'm in my 14 carats
I'm 14 carat
Doing it up like Midas, Mhm
They say I got a touch
So good, so good
Make you never wanna leave
So don't, so don't

Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to your heart beating

'Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh
I just wanna look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh

I'm in my marquise diamonds
I'm a marquise diamond
Could even make that Tiffany jealous
You say I give it to you hard
So bad, so bad
Make you never wanna leave
I won't, I won't

Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to how you're breathing

'Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh
I just wanna look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you,
Uh-Huh, Uh-Huh, Ah...
Uh-Huh, Uh-Huh, Ah, Mhm...

Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I

[A$AP Rocky]
Hold on, take a minute, love
'Cause I ain't trying to mess your image up
Like we mess around in triple cuffs
Stumble 'round town, pull your zipper up
Pants sag like I don't give a
I ain't trying to mess your fitness up
And I ain't trying to get you into stuff
But the way you touchin' on me in the club
Rubbin' on my miniature
John Hancock, the signature
Any time I hit it, know she feelin' for it through
And every time we get up, always end up on the news
Ain't worried bout no press and ain't worried bout the next chick
They love the way you dress and ain't got shit up on you
Jackpot, hit the jackpot (Whoo!)
Just met a bad miss without the ass shots (Whoo!)
You look good, girl, you know you did good, don't you?
You look good, girl, bet it feel good, don't it?

I just wanna look good for you, good for you, Uh-Huh
Baby let me be good to you, good to you, Uh-Huh
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you, Uh-huh, Uh-Huh, Ah...
Uh-Huh, Uh-Huh...

Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I
