Selena Gomez has released a new track called “Only You” for the new Netflix original series, “13 Reasons Why.”
Gomez is a pretty big deal in the US, but over here in the UK…she’s never really had a hit. And while she’s famous in her own right, I’m sure most people’s first thought after hearing her name is ‘Justin Bieber’.
Let’s not take away anything from her awesome music, “Come and Get It” was an absolute banger “Hands To Myself” is still a jam!
However, this cover of Yaz‘s “Only You” seems totally pointless.
Sang softly over a simple piano with dream-like echoes and swirls, Gomez sounds good covering the synth-pop original.
But the track just doesn’t contain anything that sticks out, it just goes through the motions for just over three minutes.
This cover sounds like it could have been planned, recorded and mastered in little over an hour.
Sorry Selena, but bring us the pop bangers instead of these half-arsed ballads.
