Wolves is a song by American singer Selena Gomez and music producer Marshmello. It was written by Gomez, Ali Tamposi, Louis Bell, Brian Lee, Carl Rosen, Marshmello and Andrew Watt, with production handled by the latter two. The song was released by Interscope Records on October 25, 2017.
Commercially, the song has topped the charts in Hungary, Latvia, and Poland while reaching the top 10 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Lebanon, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom; as well as the top 20 in Germany, Spain, and the United States.
Marshmello first revealed the collaboration on July 22, 2017, when he tweeted: “Happy birthday Selena Gomez! Can’t wait for the world to hear what we’ve been working on. On August 15, 2017, Marshmello wrote that Gomez “sounds absolutely incredible” on the song, when replying to a fan who asked him to talk about the collaboration.
The song has been described as a sticky electronic snack and propulsive EDM which is equally acoustic-laced EDM and long lost 80’s pop. Caitlin Kelley from Billboard noted how Marshmello’s influence in the song can be heard through subtle trap elements, like the triple high hats buzzing beneath the smoky atmosphere. “Wolves” opens dark and gloomy with Gomez singing over a clean electric guitar as Kat Bein from Billboard commented, the build of the bridge is almost country-pop, but the choral hook is all Marshmello sweetness. In an interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1, Gomez stated that the lyrics deeply reflects what she was feeling the period she recorded the track.
On November 2, 2017, Gomez released the vertical video for the single exclusively through Spotify. It was later released via her official Vevo account. The video is a FaceTime between Gomez and Marshmello. (Wikipedia)
