Remember when you actually had to wait for an artist’s album to be released to hear any songs they hadn’t already released as singles? Yeah, us either. And so in this modern day and age, we have two new songs from Selena Gomez’s When The Sun Goes Down LP, even though we’ve already recently heard the Britney Spears-co-penned “Whiplash,” the 80′s-synth-happy “Bang Bang Bang,” and taken a gander at the video for the disc’s second single. Head below to hear the album’s title track and “My Dilemma.”[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Selena_Gomez___the_Scene_-_My_Dilemma.mp3" text="Selena Gomez & The Scene - My Dilemma" dl="0"]
This track has Selena torn between her head and her heart as she wrestles with her feelings for a boy who’s no good for her: “Here’s my dilemma / One half of me wants you, and the other half wants to forget.” Despite the angst of the lyrics, however, “My Dilemma” is an upbeat jam that we might describe as “Pink lite” (as long as no horses were being colored anywhere nearby).
Oh, and Selena? We think Debbie Gibson would suggest that you stay away from the bad boy this song is about.[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Selena-Gomez-the-Scene-When-the-Sun-Goes-Down.mp3" text="Selena Gomez & The Scene - When The Sun Goes Down" dl="0"]
“The party doesn’t start ’til the sun goes down,” Selena sings on this joyful dance track in the spirit of Jennifer Lopez’s “On The Floor,” sounding not at all exhausted. This, perhaps, is the best indication yet that Selena Gomez is poised to cross over into gaining an older, wider audience, in addition to satisfying her loyal young fan base.
