"Fetish" is a song recorded by Selena Gomez featuring guest vocals from American rapper Gucci Mane. It will be featured on Gomez's upcoming third studio album. It was released as a single on July 13, 2017. Fetish debuted at #1 on iTunes US.
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. 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.
"Fetish" contains a beat that blends R&B and electronic music. 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. 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." Its sound has been also described as "alt-pop", and as a trap ballad.
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."
