Single of the Day: Selena Gomez feat. ASAP Rocky – Good For You 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Kesan pertama saat mendengarkan ‘Good For You‘ dari Selena Gomez ini adalah: this doesn’t sound anything like her. Anything at all. Lagu ini terlalu ghetto untuk ukuran mantan Disney Princess tersebut. Ia menenggelamkan diri dalam pesona musik pop yang kuat terpengaruh pada R&B dan Hip-Hop. Tapi mengingat track record Selena yang sangat bagus dengan uji coba -dimana ‘Come & Get It’ dan aroma worldbeat-nya berhasil memberi puncak karir baru bagi sang artis- ‘Good For You’ ini pun punya masa depan yang cerah.

Peran utamanya dalam mengolah vokal sesuai kebutuhan lagu; agak me-raspy dengan tone down sepanjang durasi merupakan alasan utama kenapa lagu ini terdengar berbeda. Selena memang tak punya peran dalam penulisan lagu. Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Nick Monson, serta ASAP Rocky yang telah menggodoknya. Tapi ia terlibat dalam proses kreatif dimana menjalin keterikatan personal dengan imej diri yang mendewasa.

‘Good For You’ berkisah tentang afeksi yang mendalam. Bagaimana sebuah komitmen yang dilukiskan secara manis dan indah dalam untaian kata per katanya. Sesekali ada lirik nakal di bagian ASAP yang membuat lagu ini berkesan seductive:
But the way you touchin’ on me in the club
Rubbin’ on my miniature
John Hancock, the signature

Keseluruhan bagian rap dihilangkan dalam video musiknya, sehingga presentase audiovisual terhadap single ini ditampilkan polos oleh Selena saja. Apakah mengurangi makna lagu? Tidak. Eliminasi tersebut hanya menghilangkan satu point of view dan menghapus jejak interaktif dua pihak pelakon dalam lagu. Selebihnya, smooth talk sexy walk sebagai produk perdana Selena bersama Interscope.

LYRIC
I’m on my 14 carats
I’m 14 carat
Doing it up like Midas, mhm
Now you say I got a touch
So good, so good
Make you never wanna leave
So don’t, so don’t

Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to your heart beating

‘Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh
I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you, uh-huh

I’m on my marquise diamonds
I’m a marquise diamond
Could even make that Tiffany jealous, mhm
You say I give it to you hard
So bad, so bad
Make you never wanna leave
I won’t, I won’t

Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to how you’re breathing

‘Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh
I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you,

Uh-huh, uh-huh, ah…
Uh-huh, uh-huh, ah, mhm…

Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I

[A$AP Rocky:]
Hold on, take a minute, love
‘Cause I ain’t trying to mess your image up
Like we mess around in triple cuffs
Stumble ’round town, pull your zipper up
Pants sag like I don’t give a
I ain’t trying to mess your fitness up
And I ain’t trying to get you into stuff
But the way you touchin’ on me in the club
Rubbin’ on my miniature
John Hancock, the signature
Any time I hit it, know she feelin’ for it through
And every time we get up, always end up on the news
Ain’t worried bout no press and ain’t worried bout the next chick
They love the way you dress and ain’t got shit up on you
Jackpot, hit the jackpot (Whoo!)
Just met a bad miss without the ass shots (Whoo!)
You look good, girl, you know you did good, don’t you?
You look good, girl, bet it feel good, don’t it?

I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh
Baby let me be good to you, good to you, uh-huh
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you, uh-huh, uh-huh, ah…
Uh-huh, uh-huh…

Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I
