Stars Dance takes the listener on a ride through the good and bad moments of a relationship. This Livvi Franc and The Suxpex penned Latin Dance-Pop song finds Selena savoring the happy times. She said during a hour-long livestream: "It has a Spanish guitar feel. I'm Latin, so I kind of love that vibe, Do you ever have moments where you don't ever want them to end? I've had those moments. It's about saving those moments and never wanting it to go away."
Another Latin Dance-Pop star wanted to record the song, but Selena was able to nab it first. Jason Evigan of The Suspex told MTV News. "Jennifer Lopez wanted [it] really badly. It's, like, real. It's, like, really cool [and] up-tempo. It's about like kind of '[Let's] dance all night. Let's save the day. Let's go into the next day. Let's keep it going all night' type of thing."
