Listen: Selena Gomez re-releases ‘Rare’ with three new songs

Selena Gomez’s latest studio album may have JUST come out, but the pop star is already releasing a deluxe edition of the record.

On Thursday (April 9), the “Lose You to Love Me” singer unleashed the deluxe version of Rare. The updated version of the album features all 13 tracks that can be found on the January release as well as three new songs. The new additions are titled “Boyfriend,” “She,” and “Souvenir.”

According to a post on Instagram Stories (via Elle), the musician describes “Boyfriend” as “a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy.”

Gomez reveals that the song was written well before the current pandemic and that having a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of her priority list (nor should it be at the top of anyone’s list).

“We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities. Just like the rest of the world, I’m praying for safety, unity, and recovery during this pandemic.”

Instead, she announced that she will be donating to the Plus 1 COVID-19 Relief Fund in addition to giving $1 from every order that’s placed on her website.

Rare (Deluxe) is currently available on Spotify and Apple Music.
