After a rocky four years that included a lupus-related kidney transplant and an emotional breakdown, Selena Gomez finally felt ready to move on. This sultry club cut finds her celebrating her restored health during a night out.
I kickstart the rhythm All the trauma's in remission No, I don't need permission Feels so, feels so, feels so good to dance again
Gomez explained about "Dance Again" during an album release event: "You can be vulnerable and have all of these feelings, but now I'm ready to kind of just let loose. It's kind of cheesy, but I got my step back."
Speaking to ET's Nischelle Turner, Gomez explained "Dance Again" is about getting her groove back after challenging times. "That song makes me feel like I got my step back, and I feel like alright, I'm back in the game a bit," she said, adding that "the whole objective of the album is self-love and acceptance."
The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
