Chart Mondays: Selena Gomez & Marshmello - Wolves

Wolves - Selena Gomez & Marshmello |

A fairly new music video for one of my favourites in the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart (at this backdated date of 4th December 2017). At this date, Camila Cabello is sitting proudly at the top with her song "Havana" featuring Young Thug. This song soon drops out of the top ten the following week, so it's no surprise I chose it for my Chart Mondays. I am obsessed with this song, as it is beyond catchy, although it really should've peaked higher on the UK chart! Watch Selena Gomez look sexy with various costume changes in an indoor swimming pool building, using various rooms as settings in this music video for her song "Wolves" in collaboration with Marshmello.

Selena Gomez is certainly a female singer who is on form, grabbing those chart numbers and releasing incredible hits. Originating from the Disney Channel - like most great singers before her - she has really come into her own the past few years. We are still waiting for her new album, but if her latest songs are anything to go by, she'll want it to be perfect and it'll be one we won't be able to stop listening to, which is what we certainly need after the last one - that didn't quite hit the spot. This is a collaboration with Marshmello, who is an anonymous DJ. He's rumoured to be Christian Comstock, with a few references that add to the rumours. This year has been so good for Marshmello who hit the UK Singles Chart and has made astronomical waves in this music industry with a few successful tracks. He was already one of the top DJs in the world, so it's about time the chart numbers reflect his credibility. This song literally stalled at number nine in the UK - disappointingly; but, it has certainly done better in other countries. It was written by Selena Gomez, Alexandra Tamposi, Louis Bell, Marshmello, Andrew Watt, Brian Lee, and Carl Rosen.

Directed by Colin Tilley, under the name BOY IN THE CASTLE, the visual takes place at an indoor swimming pool facility. This was not what I was expecting. Surely, we all expected to see Selena Gomez running through the woods, jumping over obstacles, and crying with the wolves - now that would be a music video and a half.

Instead, we have her sexily staring into the camera as she sexes up this swimming pool. From the showers to the benches to the diving board, Selena Gomez certainly knows how to explore a building. She also knows how to change costumes; maybe, she didn't know which ones to pick so, she decided on all six - why not?

Overall, this music video adds nothing to the song whatsoever. Actually, I prefer the verticle music video, which I wrote up for CelebMix, which is much more entertaining, and you actually see Marshmello. I was also expecting her to dive into the pool instead, she walks across it in a totally different outfit. This video doesn't link in with the song at all.
