Album Review: Selena Gomez's 'Rare'
The album formerly known as 'SG2' is an eclectic, pop revelation.

February has been rather kind to Selenators. Selena Gomez began the month by announcing her Rare Beauty line of cosmetics and then rolled out the vinyl edition of chart-topping LP, Rare. That contained the long-awaited “Feel Me,” which was finally uploaded to streaming services — four years after it debuted on the Revival Tour — on February 21. The pop star now ends the month by sharing a pretty, acoustic version of “Rare,” which she recorded at the Village Studios in Los Angeles.

The stripped-back performance puts the focus squarely on Selena’s (underrated) voice. She serves breathily gorgeous vocals with only a guitarist and backup singer for support. It’s clear that this kind of intimate setting is the 27-year-old’s comfort zone and she lets go of the anxiety and nerves that clearly affected her AMAs performance. At one point, Selena promised to tour Rare — albeit not in the traditional sense. Maybe a limited run of intimate venues is the way forward. Watch her in action below.
