AceShowbiz - While musicians usually promote their new songs by releasing a music video, Selena Gomez and Marshmello decide to take a different approach. Following the release of "Wolves", the duo has released a vertical video for the track.
The clip opens with Marshmello texting Selena, saying that they should release a video for the track. Instead of replying, the "Good for You" hitmaker decides to video call Marshmello. The scene then switches to Selena, rocking a sexy pink bathrobe with wet hair, lying on a bed. The song starts after Selena tells the popular DJ that she can't stop thinking about the song.
Selena then takes Marshmello on a tour of her Hollywood Hills home through the video call, where she excitedly dances and sings to "Wolves" on a picnic table at her backyard. "I've been running through the jungle/ I've been running with the wolves/ To get to you, to get to you," the "Monte Carlo" star sings. "I've been down the darkest alleys/ Saw the dark side of the moon/ To get to you, to get to you."
"Wolves" was released on Wednesday, October 25. The song became an instant hit as it peaked at No. 1 on U.S. iTunes chart and arrived at No. 4 on Spotify's Daily Global chart. The track also debuted at No. 7 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic chart.
Shortly after the track was unveiled, Selena revealed in an interview with Apple Music that the song might be one of her most personal records, saying that it mirrored everything she had been going through. "The song is very beautiful and personal," the "Bad Liar" singer said. "Weirdly, at the same time I was working on it in Japan. I was going through stuff too, so it's mirrored everything."
She then added that her new album might be released a lot sooner than expected, saying, "It's [the album] a lot sooner than I think people anticipate. I want to call the shots, I want it to be good, I want it to be ready, I don't want to do anything that's forced. It will be soon."
