You Won't Believe How Long It Took Selena Gomez To Record ‘Good For You’

‘It was stunning,’ Selena said.

Selena Gomez is seductive, sexy and ready to "embrace" who she is.

The singer has just released her much anticipated new single, "Good For You" featuring A$AP Rocky, giving her fans a sultry track that shows off her musical growth.

"Good For You" is much different from what we heard on Selena's previous album, Stars Dance, and there's a reason -- this time around, Selena is 100% hands-on in the creative process.

"We actually had a little bit of a journey picking the first single for the album because this is such a transition album for me," Selena said. "This is the most I've been creatively involved from the writing process... every single thing I'm even remotely singing about is something I've related to and something I'm hitting the nail on, and I had to pick what was going to represent the album and who I am as a whole."

It seems Selena wasn't kidding when she said she would reveal the "TRUTH" on this album. "It's my time to embrace who I am, and I'm not going to sit down in a chair and talk about something that doesn't mean anything to me anymore," she said. To help her do that, she's teamed up with songwriter Julia Michaels (who wrote Fifth Harmony's "Miss Movin' On") and Semi Precious Weapons frontman Justin Tranter.

"They are the wonderful writers who wrote the track, and I snagged them for the rest of the album, and I took them to Mexico with me and we wrote more and more together," Selena said. "'Good For You' is actually one of the first songs I recorded for the record. It was stunning -- it was a piece that was just everything I feel a woman should embody, but not in the obvious way. I vibed with it. The track only took about 45 minutes because I just did it all the way through. I didn't want to stop in between. I wanted to feel the whole song as a whole, and they were there, and it was just a beautiful start to the album."

She continued, "That's why I think it's great that it ended up being the first single, because having it be one of the first songs to then inspire the rest of the album means it's only going to get better."
