Background

Initially scheduled for release on April 8, 2013, On Air with Ryan Seacrest began streaming "Come & Get It" online after being leaked earlier that day.[2] Its lyrics describe an addiction to a troublesome romance; media outlets speculated that the song was directed towards Gomez's former boyfriend Justin Bieber, though Gomez denied the claims. "Come & Get It" was previously recorded for Rihanna's 2012 album Unapologetic, but was ultimately not included for the record.

Critical reception

After being released, the song received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who noted Gomez's maturing image and new sound. Kyle Anderson of Entertainment Weekly described it as "an easy, breezy tune with an ambling melody and a hint of reggae lilt." Jessica Sager of PopCrush gave it a mixed review, stating that "the track is a change and a shift, and it was a risk. Gomez may win new fans with the song since it’s pretty far outside of her usual bubblegum Disney box, and her loyal Selenators will likely eat it up regardless. However, for fans of pure pop, they may want to stick with her ex boyfriend". Meanwhile, Bradley Stern of MuuMuse.com has referenced it as one of Rihanna's tracks from her sixth studio album Talk That Talk but gave it a positive review, stating that “Come & Get It” is fairly monotone, but repeat listens reveal the song’s infectiousness: The chorus–especially with that stuttered chant at the end–is pure sticky pop goodness, the stomping beat is smutty enough to inspire a sick strut, and that whirring Bollywood-meets-tribal-electro synth sound lends itself well to some grind-up-against-the-wall make-out action up in the club." On air-personality, Peter Dee, also gave the song a very positive review, stating that, "The Ester Dean penned and StarGate produced track is a breezy vacation from everything else that our favorite pop divas are currently doing on the radio. She may not have a voice as big as fellow former Disney star, Demi Lovato, but Selena's breathy vocals are just what the song needed to fuse the Bollywood and electro-pop sound, and make it work." Selena Gomez performed "Come & Get It" at the MTV Movie Awards on April 14th, 2013, The Ellen Show on the April 16th, 2013, and Radio Disney Music Awards on April 27th, 2013.

Lyrics

When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]

When you're ready
When you're ready
When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]

You ain't gotta worry, it's an open invitation
I'll be sittin' right here, real patient
All day, all night, I'll be waitin' standby
Can't stop because I love it, hate the way I love you
All day all night, maybe I'm addicted for life, no lie.

I'm not too shy to show I love you, I got no regrets.
I love you much, too much to hide you, this love ain't finished yet.
This love ain't finished yet…
So baby whenever you're ready…

[2x]
When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]

When you're ready
When you're ready
When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]

You got the kind of love that I want, let me get that.
And baby once I get it, I'm yours no take backs.
I'm gon' love you for life, I ain't leaving your side
Even if you knock it, ain't no way to stop it
Forever you're mine, baby I'm addicted, no lie, no lie.

I'm not too shy to show I love you, I got no regrets.
So baby whenever you're ready…

[2x]
When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]

When you're ready
When you're ready
When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]

This love will be the death of me
But I know I'll die happily
I'll know, I'll know, I'll know
Because you love me so… yeah!

[2x]
When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]

When you're ready
When you're ready
When you're ready come & get it
Na na na na [3x]
