"With the whole world being separated from each other I kept looking and working only on pure good vibes. I wanted to make music for the world and mix all my favorite influences of afro beat, latin music, something that felt grounded and organic. Selena and I had been talking and after “Taki Taki” we had to give the world another round with fresh summer vibes. Something that made it feel like summer the first time you heard it. “Selfish Love” came very naturally for us and I think it’s the perfect evolution for our history together." – DJ Snake on the release of “Selfish Love”
The first new music from DJ Snake since last summer, “Selfish Love” showcases his one-of-a-kind skill at fusing genres and styles, bringing the bouncy rhythms of Latin pop to his boundary-pushing electronic production. With its dreamy textures and delicate saxophone tones, the track centers on a beautifully bittersweet vocal performance from Gomez, who drifts from Spanish to English and back again with both incredible grace and plenty of raw emotion.
Also featuring Ozuna and Cardi B, “Taki Taki” premiered in September 2018 and soon became one of the most-streamed songs in Spotify history. It also reached No. 1 in sixteen countries across the globe, while its visual emerged as one of YouTube’s most highly viewed music videos of all time.
