"Fetish" is an song recorded by Selena Gomez featuring guest vocals from American rapper Gucci Mane from Gomez's upcoming third studio album. It will be released as a single on July 13, 2017. Fetish debuted at #1 on iTunes US.

Background

Gomez first teased "Fetish" through a short clip which debuted at the end of the music video for her previous single, "Bad Liar". The singer followed with a trio of cryptic images tied to the forthcoming song on her Instagram account.[1] The image for the single cover was shot by fashion photographer Petra Collins, who also lensed her artwork for "Bad Liar". The artwork shows Gomez next to a broken-down car carrying paper grocery bags.[2]

Composition

"Fetish" contains a beat that blends R&B and electronic music.[3] Lars Brandle from Billboard perceived the presence of auto-tune effects in its production. Lyrically, the song explores themes of sexuality and sexual desire, in the chorus Gomez discusses the effect attraction has on a lover, while Mane's verse mentions the chemistry between these paramours,with Gomez’s breathy vocals pairing around the beats.[10] A writer from Bustle noted that "Gomez admits that while she totally understands why the object of her affection would be a little addicted to her, even when "I push you out," they come running right back."[11] Its sound has been also described as "alt-pop",[4] and as a trap ballad.[5]

Critical reception

Mike Wass of Idolator described "Fetish" as Gomez's "most scandalous" and "most adventurous" offering yet, stating her transformation into "pop's most experimental princess is all but complete." Wass concluded saying Gomez has "come into her own as an artist, confidently dabbling in sub-genres usually reserved for the alt crowd."[6]

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Selena Gomez]
Take it or leave it
Baby take it or leave it
But I know you won't leave it
'Cause I know that you need it
Look in the mirror
When I look in the mirror
Baby I see it clearer
Why you wanna be nearer

[Pre-Chorus: Selena Gomez]
I'm not surprised
I sympathize, ah
I can't deny
Your appetite, ah

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
You got a fetish for my love
I push you out and you come right back
Don't see a point in blaming you
If I were you, I'd do me too

[Verse 2: Selena Gomez]
Reaching your limit
Say you're reaching your limit
Going over your limit
But I know you can't quit it
Something about me
Got you hooked on my body
Take you over and under and twisted up like origami
 

[Pre-Chorus: Selena Gomez]
I'm not surprised
I sympathize, ah
I can't deny
Your appetite, ah

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
You got a fetish for my love
I push you out and you come right back
Don't see a point in blaming you
If I were you, I'd do me too

[Verse 3: Gucci Mane]
The way you walk, the way you talk
I blame you 'cause it's all your fault
Ya playin' hard, don't turn me off
Ya acting hard, but I know you soft
You my fetish, I'm so with it
All these rumors bein' spreaded
Might as well go 'head and whip it
'Cause they sayin' we already did it
Call on Gucci if you ever need and
I'll be South Beach in the drop top gleamin'
Order diamonds, Aquafina
Just need you in a blue bikini
 

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
You got a fetish for my love
I push you out and you come right back
Don't see a point in blaming you
If I were you, I'd do me too
