New Song: Selena Gomez, 'Whiplash'

New Song: Selena Gomez, 'Whiplash'

Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Whiplash, game of musical chairs, Selena's new song

The music industry has been playing a game of musical chairs lately. First, Ke$ha cowrites "Till The World Ends" for Britney, and now, Britney co-writes "Whiplash" for Selena. What's next... Selena pens a song for Bieber? (actually, that'd be sorta cute).

Selena's new song "Whiplash" was originally slated for Britney's Circus album, but it didn't make the cut. As opposed to the pop-centric "Bang Bang Bang," the recently hospitalized starlet's latest tune is her most dance-oriented song to date. "Whiplash" is propelled by a dark and grimy synth that's eerily reminiscent of the one used in Christina Aguilera's "Not Myself Tonight." Selena takes on a fun British-inspired accent and takes a seriously sultry turn on the song, purring like the sex kitten who cowrote the flirty track. It's almost hard to believe she's the same girl who plays a bubbly wonder on "Who Says." Then again, maybe it's not so unbelievable since Selena's been on a crusade recently to (classily) shed her Disney image by adopting several new looks and sounds.

As a thank you to the "Whiplash" cowriter, Selena has plans to do a serious Britney tribute when she tours in support of her new album, When The Lights Go Down. While she's reportedly going to incorporate "Toxic" and "Baby One More Time," I'm hoping Selena puts her spin on my personal favorite, "(You Drive Me) Crazy." Selena, can you hook a sister up?
