If you're in the market for amazing Charli XCX songs but don't really want to a listen to Charli XCX you are in for some GOOD NEWS this morning because every single thing about the new Selena Gomez single sounds like Charli XCX, principally because 'Same Old Love' was written by one Charlotte Emma Aitchison (alongside Stargate).
Was it written specifically for Selena? On one hand this tweet, from around the time we interrogated Charli XCX over whether she'd been working with Rihanna, suggests that perhaps the song could originally have been intended for another singer.
I'm so sick o dat same ol love #barz

On the other hand who cares, it's brilliant — and it's the second at-least-four-star song from Selena's new album 'Revival', which is out on October 9 and already seems to be storming into Actually Really Good territory.
