Selena Gomez – Dance Again | Lyrics Review and Song Meaning
“Dance Again” is the second track on Selena Gomez’s 2020 album ‘Rare.’ The song is about feeling good about yourself despite whatever that happens around you. The dance-pop beat makes this song a definite club-banger. Let us explore the meaning of the song and lyrics in this article.
Selena Gomez released her third studio album ‘Rare’ on January 10, 2020, marking the year as an official heartbreak calendar. The album inspired by Selena’s life treads close to addressing her past relationships that have failed. Her most notable breakup was with the singer Justin Bieber who married model Hailey Baldwin in 2019. However, on this album, Selena Gomez talks about moving on, in songs such as “Look At Her Now” and “Dance Again.”
On January 4, 2020, Selena Gomez teased the poster for “Dance Again” on Twitter;
In this song, Selena Gomez sings about creating her own path of happiness. It is clear that she did not have the best of her years when it comes to relationships. However, what she is realizing is that only you have the power to make yourself happy and content. No other person, lover or otherwise, can really influence that. Happiness is a vehicle in which you are the sole driver.
Listen to “Dance Again” by Selena Gomez
In the second verse of the song, Selena Gomez admits that she falls down the wagon at times too. She becomes vulnerable to heartache no matter how hard she tries to move on. Memory is a fickle and a powerful thing. A strong memory can never be erased, but only can be kept drowned with other memories. Whenever you relapse, those closeted memories surface.
In these lyrics, however, the general notion is that Selena Gomez is happy with herself dancing on her own. Her “trauma” is in remission when she commits to her dance. “Trauma” is a serious word, unbefitting to characterize a breakup.
